Is it just the picture of the room you have or access to the real room. If its a picture it would be difficult to replicate the true color.....different tones through out the picture. If you have access to the room and have an android or iphone you could get Ben Moore's color capture app and snap a shot, the app will then tell you what color it is.

no its a picture from a remodelers website of a project they did, I've seen the color a lot of places and just dont know what it is... seems to be a common color range, not sure if its greens or grays... etc... have a shirwin williams color chip set but cant find anything in it that looks similar ugh... matching colors by eye is never easy...

Try Sherwin Williams 6137 Burlap. I think that may give you a good starting point.
