What is the name of the paint color on the walls? - This color is so beautiful, it is exactly the color I am looking for. I am hoping to get the brand and name so I can paint with it in my home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Tuscan
Style Secret: Wooden BeamsRough-hewn wooden beams crisscross the ceilings of traditional Tuscan homes, lending not only structural support but also a graceful architectural element. Leave them unfinished to weather gradually, or stain them in a medium or dark shade that still lets the natural wood grain show through.Bella Tuscany: The signature colors of Tuscan style amplify the warm undertones in wood and make it look doubly dramatic. The red notes in the beams and woodwork in this space pick up the orangey gold of the wall color for an unrestrained glow.
