This beautiful, favorite paint color to many homeowners, Revere Pewter is possibly the most perfect paint color ever made. It is a winner because of the softness and versatility of this flawless greige.

One reason I love this neutral is because of it’s ability to work with many other colors. So it is easy to leave the walls painted Revere and change up the rest of the room as often as you wish with  a new color accent wall or accessories.

One of my favorite color palettes working with Revere Pewter is turquoise:

So pretty! Great color combination.

Beautiful turquoise used here for the back of bookshelves. Look how picture perfect this dresser is painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Florence:

You know how I love navy blue and Benjamin Moore Hale Navy paired with Revere Pewter is probably my personal favorite.

See how well the navy kitchen cabinet works with walls painted in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter?:

This photo below is from an online color/decorating consultation here I did a few years ago and is still so popular on Pinterest:

Revere Pewter on the walls, White Dove for trim and cabinets, (read here for the best trim color with Revere Pewter), with navy area rug, pillows and window treatments. Love!

But not everyone loves navy like me, (hard to believe!), so I will give you a few more great options to use:)

If you want a soft, serene look, try Revere Pewter and White Dove:

A beautiful kitchen I would love to move into right now.  So clean and fresh. Or how about Revere Pewter and White Dove in your dining room?:

Gorgeous with the beige chairs and show-stopping chandelier!

Another perfect color combination is Revere Pewter and black:

So classy and timeless, don’t you agree? I love painted interior doors.

A color I have been seeing quite a bit mixed with Revere Pewter is fresh green:

Although being an all beige room above, the green brings the whole room to life.

I love these statement green chairs in an otherwise neutral kitchen painted in Revere Pewter and white:

Revere works well with pink/red:

Gray is another great color to work with when looking for a neutral color palette:

I think the greenery mixed in the room above gives the room necessary coziness. It would look too plain and cold without the plants.

Although I think there are better paint choices for light colored woods, yellow/orange oak for example, Revere Pewter works beautifully with darker woods and brown as shown below:

Are there any other colors you are using as a accent with Revere Pewter? Love to hear them!

Have a great weekend everyone!



  1. Love Revere Pewter! Considering it as an exterior color with either BM Wrought Iron or BM Hale Navy on the shutters. I would like my door to pop! Any suggestions? Also thinking of a dark wood door.

  2. Couldn’t agree more revere pewter is beautiful! My whole house is painted with it..Can you suggest a color that would go best with revere on my laundry room cabinets want just a hint of color.


    • Hi Tammy,

      I would love to be able to just give you a color, but I cannot without seeing photos. So many unknowns and I would want to be sure to give you the best color. I do online color/decorating consultations. For a one room color the price is $45.00. If you would like me to help you find the best color,send me an email [email protected] Thanks for writing!

      Best, Kelly

  3. Hi Kelly,

    What color is the interior door painted in the first photo? You said turquoise. I love the idea and want to use the same color in my home.


  4. I need to refresh my living room – have paprika shades (up/downs) on picture window – don’t really want to replace those due to cost – what color palates can I do to fold that in? I have had harvest colors for the past 13 years. Ready for a change. HELP?!

    • Hi Susan,
      Have you thought of neutral walls, then bringing in blue or green furniture? The both look nice with paprika. I would use a medium to dark blue or green to match the intensity of paprika. Then for your area rug, bring in the paprika and blue. Paprika pillows, solid and patterned, on the sofa will tie everything in together. Hope this helps.

  5. When mention in the article there might be better colors than Revere Pewter for hello/orange oak. What colors might you recommend for honey oak floors if want a light Greige /or even off white. Looking for general whole house color (not a lot of natural light).

    • Hi Jean,

      I have found greige does not work well with the honey oak. If you are looking for something light, I would look at light whites with yellow or green undertones to work best.Such as Ben Moore Feather Down OC-6. Hope this helps!

  6. Love seeing these photos. Revere pewter such a calming color. Would love to use this or a similar color. My kitchen cabinets are painted white dove (bm). My counter is Santa Cecilia dark(granite). Backsplash is noce tavertine. It’s like a dark gold.. My walls are painted natural linen by Sherwin williams. I don’t like the color on walls as in my kitchen looks to yellow. My floor is a dark laminate. Any suggestion on a color. Could I use this gray or any other. Is edgecomb gray another nice one. Or is gray not a good choice.

  7. Hi Kelly.
    I have natural birch cabinets that lean slightly yellow and looking for a Greige /beige/mushroom paint colour. If Revere Pewter doesn’t work with yellow any suggestion for colours to look at. I don’t want pink undertones and definitely want something that leans to the warmer side. I need a starting point.

    • Hi Sandra,
      Yellow and griege are not the best choice together. I would need to see photos of your kitchen to even start to give you suggestions. If you would like to work together, let me know and I will send you an email how the process works. Thanks for writing!

  8. Painting my house open concept for living room and kitchen -used SW Jersey cream in past and loved the brightness and clean look. But now I want to use revere pewter but will need an accent color for going up the stairs to second floor. Also m.y cabinets are a maple finish, any suggestions.

  9. Our new house is rever pewter walls white dove trim. Question I have not bought any furniture for our house…any suggestions on color….as my accent color is black.

  10. Have you seen Revere Pewter used on exteriors? Thinking about Revere Pewter siding, Hale Navy shutters, White Dove trim. Roof is “weathered wood” (brown with hints of charcoal gray and blue). I LOVE navy and would love to figure out how to use it as an accent for the exterior.

    Revere too gray for the roof? Too much contrast with the dark shutters? Would love your thoughts as you are so familiar with the colors.

    Also considering Finnie Gray for the siding.

  11. Hello Kelly,
    I’m painting my first floor Revere Pewter. I’d like to paint my entryway and front hallway a similar (maybe a shade darker) color. Any suggestions on a color that is just a shade or two darker than Revere Pewter?

    • I’m not an expert but our designer who was helping us pick out cabinet colors to contrast our revere pewter walls showed us Colonnade Gray, and Knitting Needles. I loved KN because of its slightly darker and RICH color. Maybe that would be a good option? I love Grey Owl as well.

      • Hi Srah,

        They are all pretty colors but the undertones are not working well with the Revere. Take a look at SW 7045 with the Revere if you are looking for a darker, rich color. Gook luck with your project!

    • Any suggestions on carpet with revere pewter. My basement is in revere pewter and I am going with grey stained cabinets in the bar area. Every carpet I choose ends up looking very grey.

  12. In kitchen photo that shows the island and beautiful rug runner, I can see some wall paint that looks green. Could you please identify what exact colors you used that were complimentary with Revere Pewter in that room, specifically the green.

  13. I loved this article! Everything you have said out loud was what I was doing and didn’t know why! I have painted every room revere Pewter because my home is very open concept. I have oak floors and I keep covering them with huge area rugs and didn’t know why, feel like I need to replace my maple dining table, and an continuously adding turquoise and black accents. One bedroom I used blush pink and it is amazing. My question is is it weird to have turquoise accents in almost every room. I am about to do my master bedroom and keep leaning to add those beachy aqua, teal, turquoise blue/greens. Is that a design faux pa? I am afraid people who come in are thinking ummm does she know there are other colors. Do you still do color consultation like you mentioned earlier in the comments?

    • Yes Betsy, I do Edesign consultations. I think it is fine if you have the same colors in different rooms because it shows continuity in your homes color flow. I think the bedroom done in your favorite colors is a great idea if you love those colors. If you feel it is too much of the same color, try using different shades of turquoise. I hope this helps.

  14. My kitchen opens up into the living room. Want to paint my kitchen revere pewter. What would be a gray that look well with that in living room? Cocoa maple cabinets with a black island.

  15. Kelly,

    My bedroom is painted in Revere pewter , I am looking at new bedding, nice sheets and duvet, any colors you think would look nice? How Would a classic percalle sheet in white with turquoise piping be? Or would you do a white or off white sheet with navy ? I also love love love anything in the orange/coral family. Thanks

    • Hi John,

      My favorite color with Revere Pewter is Navy! Really perfect together. Turquoise is another good color. I also love the orange and coral- but not the best with the Revere. The color seems to go pinkish when paired together with reds, orange or corals. Hope this helps!
