The paint color is the natural color of the authentic Japanese plaster that was used throughout the house, applied by Japanese workmen.

It is brilliant.

It looks solid and seems to be supporting a goodly amount of weight. How is it hung?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Tracing the Deep Roots of Design
One project that embraces all three aspects (fractals, sheltered views, golden section) in Hosey's book is the "Eastern Seaboard" project in Connecticut, designed by G. Steuart Gray, AIA. The categories not be readily apparent in this view, but there is something very pleasing about this space, from the built-in furniture and open wood structure to the paint color and the soft light entering through the windows at left. They combine to create a cohesive environment that appears quite relaxing.
