Default Paint techniques

I used to have walls using this Ralph Lauren paint when I lived in Canada but I can't seem to find a similar beige/brown combo. I see alot of orange, yellow and blue..
anyone know of a paint company that offers this?? the ones i am looking for on the page are:
Almond Willow
Fawn's Leap
http://www.ralphlaurenhome.com/produ...s.aspx?haid=76

its hard to tell but its a beige-ish color and then it has this brown/green glaze that you apply in a crosshatching type of movement and it looks amazing. I did it all in my living room back home and i would love to replicate it.
I have been to about 6 paint shops in my town but no one has anything other than like oranges, yellows or blues.
but this has to exist here in a more neutral tone.
anyone seen this??

Take a sample of the paint to any decent paint supplier and they will be able to match it (perfectly).

i have taken an example to them and they all say it is "specialized" paint to get the effect and they dont have it.
this is a better picture of what i want


i didnt think it would be difficult to match here but it is proving to be. i always seem to want things that dont exist in spain hahaha

they have this kind of effect put it is never a normal color
