Need help identifying paint color
1 Attachment(s)
I am trying to find a color that is similar to the walls in this picture.

Good luck with that. Point to the exact place you want to match. There is camera bias, monitor bias, shadows etc.
Find a color book and choose..

If you're using a smart phone there are a couple of paint company apps that are free to download that allow you to upload a picture, point to an area you want to match, and the app finds the closest color match by the brand. As stated before there will be camera bias and lighting bias but it may get you in the ballpark for colors. The apps I know about are from sherwin Williams and Behr.

even if you had the exact color it would look different in your house because of different lighting and different shadows.
