Whenever I am asked what my favorite gray color is, the first gray that jumps to mind is Ben Moore Revere Pewter HC-172.
I love it because it is such a warm gray and it works so well in many different rooms in the home.This gray works just as well in a kitchen as it does in the living room.
We know what a great neutral gray is and revere pewter is no exception. You can pair with blues, greens, blacks, and orange. But unlike a lot of other grays, you can use revere pewter with dark brown.
So when my new friend Rosie contacted me for an online color consultation, she asked me if I could suggest a pretty color for her dining room that would work with her artwork and existing furnishings. She had painted the kitchen, which is visible from the dining room, with Ben Moore Flora AF-470, (a green), that we also had to work with. The before color on the wall below is Interlude AF-135. She felt the color was reading too ‘pink’ on the walls and also boring. She contacted me to help her because she knew the look she wanted but needed help with her color choices.
As you can see, the black furniture and the artwork would work beautifully with a gray and Rosie was excited to try a gray. I looked at various grays with the Flora color and I kept coming back to the Revere Pewter because I have worked with it before and I knew it was a beautiful color. Plus it looked great with the kitchen color Flora. Another gray we looked at was Chelsea Gray HC-168. It also went well with the kitchen color, but we thought it might be too dark with the flooring and furniture.
After painting with revere pewter:
Don’t you think it came out beautiful? It looks so fresh and clean. Rosie loves it and so do I. Rosie: “WOW! I love the Revere Pewter! It is so pretty and goes great with Flora. The Manchester looks very nice also. Even my husband who was very bitter because of repainting loves it. I am very happy! All the rooms flow well now. Thank you so much! You are awesome! I will send some pics when the sun goes down more for better lighting. Thank you Kelly!”
