    Appears to be a 1980 deVille with Durand knit cloth with Renaissance velour inserts and official Cadillac color of the interior is "Light Beige" although back then the lighter interior colors had darker dashboard colors from the factory to reduce glare, I do not believe this secondary color had an official color name.

    The steering wheel is not original to the interior, it is from a newer non-deVille model (there is a wreath instead of a "V" under the crest).

    I'll check my chart, hang on.

    Ok, the closest I can tell is 15173 Camel.

    http://www.levineautoparts.com/semcamplasan.html

    However, the lighting in those pics is terrible, and there's no way to match a colour using those pics. I really encourage you to order a chart or visit your local dealer to get a chart to match your colour.

    Here's a Trans Am that was done with 15173. Does this look right? Note that this is taken with a flash!



    I took a pic of the corner of my colour chart that will help you. Natural light. As you can see, it will be tough to tell from a pic.

    Perhaps find actual samples of the paint or dye you intend to use and match it up against the dash in your car to make sure the shade will harmonize with the original. I would think pictures vary with flash and camera and lighting. Again, Cadillac officially called your interior color "light beige" but the dash is a darker shade by original design. To my eye saddle tan has more of an orange hue and not a match to what you have.

    Pull the panel below the steering column and take it with you to the parts store. Match the color to the SEM chart.

    At least the ones around me do not. I went to parts plus. I believe Napa carries sem as well.
