    take a piece of the interior to Lowes or Home Depot, they can color match it. Not sure what type of paint to use though, I am thinking exterior.

    If it's a common vehicle (say a chevy truck) chances are pretty good you can match it with Duplicolor paint which is available at most large auto parts stores (Napa, Auto Zone, etc). They also make a vinyl & plastic paint which is specifically designed for vehicle interiors, choices are a little thin in that though.

    If you have a ford ranger and the console you are using is plastic, goto F150Online.com and search the forum. They should list a part # for Ford Factory match spray paint. It is about $13 a can.
