Revere Pewter Alternatives

13/02/2016



As I'm coming up to my 2 year anniversary with Benjamin Moore, I can still stand by the number 1 thing that I've learned, and it's this: just because a colour is popular, doesn't mean it's right for your home. Revere Pewter is the chameleon colour that looks a little bit different in every home it's used in. I've seen it appear olive green (most commonly), as a bit of a cold blue, and in natural daylight, it appears as the perfect true greige. Through trial and error with Revere Pewter, I've found these other colours to be really good alternatives. If my client hates green but wants Revere Pewter, I direct them to Collingwood. If my client wants Revere Pewter, but a little bit darker, that's when I use Silver Fox or Thunder. Revere Pewter, but a little bit lighter? Pale Oak.

It's okay to be interested in what's on trend -
but be sure that it works for your home and your personal style!

Have a great day!

    1. It's a gorgeous colour - but not for every home! Hopefully one of these works for you :)
