Finding a wall color is difficult enough. But when you have to work around an unusual color such as this trim below:

It is really challenging!  Can you tell what undertone the trim has?

This is my living room in our NH home. The previous owner thought taupe was a good neutral to use for All the trim in the house!:

Revere Pewter With Oak Cabinets?

April 16, 2015

A reader recently wrote asking if I thought Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter paint color works well with oak cabinets. Here is a nice example I found on Houzz:

I think it works very well in the room above which has the oak cabinets. Since I could not find other photos online, I took my large color sample to see how it looked with the lighter stained wood:

I think Revere Pewter and the light wood work well together. The green undertone in the paint and the yellow undertone in the wood are playing very nice together. I also like the combination of Revere Pewter with the darker stained wood:

One reason I have always loved Revere Pewter is because it is such a versatile and adaptable color. If you have noticed, a room that has been painted in Revere Pewter and the room has a lot of sunlight, the walls will read more gray. In lower lit rooms, the  Revere Pewter walls take on more of a beige color:

And another big reason that I love Revere Pewter is because it works with most all other colors. Such a perfect color! So yes, Diane, I think Revere Pewter works well with oak cabinets. But be sure to sample in your lighting! Such an important step because the paint color will look different in the day and the night lighting and you want to be sure you love both!

So which is my favorite trim color to use with Revere Pewter? My answer is Benjamin Moore’s White Dove OC-17. With its warm undertones, it works beautifully with Revere Pewter in all types of  lighting.  And although White Dove would not be the best trim color choice with all wall colors, I’d say in this case it is the perfect trim match!
