how to graduated color/wall?

Eggfar is exactly right - It's the glow from the back wall.

I remember a house years ago where a client asked the painter why he changed the nice taupe we chose for a garish yellow - and the painter replied he didn't...
...we eventually realized that the day we chose the color in this North facing room was a typical gloomy San Franciso day - but the day after the paintjob was completed was a bright sunny day and the house across the street was yellow: so the reflected light made her entire room appear yellow!

This is why I always say you can't select a paint color for a room based on a photograph of someone elses room!

Lots of door manufacture make this style but the "yellow" painting is a special color that was painted on the door.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Brandi added this to Ombre Cake Colors for Your Home
The effect can be achieved with light and paint, creating a smooth transition from one room to the next, even if they're different colors. Here, a yellow-to-off-white gradation gives the stairway some extra emphasis and draws you on to explore the home.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to 13 Ways to Paint an Interior Door
Painting this glass door and trim the same bold color as the wall creates an illusion there is no doorway, just panes of glass. I would love to try this on a frosted door leading to the basement. A door with a bold color is very tempting to open to see what fun lies beyond.
Danyelle Mathews added this to Ombré Makes the Grade at Home
The ombré paint treatment in this entryway is subtle and stunning. The door and entryway are painted a cheery yellow that eases into a cool cream as you go up the stairs.
Becky Harris added this to 17 Ways to Make Better Use of Entryway Corners
Sneak in a dresser or cabinet. It can take some time to find just the right piece for a small hallway corner, but this is a great way to sneak extra storage into a small home. Also, note the way the art and the tall wood piece draw the eye up and give the cabinet a strong presence.

Entry way. I even have an antique yellow flowerpot would put on top.

Short case, photo hanging. Don’t love the plant obscuring the photo.

Gradation, gets light to dark from up to down the stairs
