Best Colors That Work With Revere Pewter

May 26, 2018

Ben Moore Revere Pewter HC-172

Ben Moore Revere Pewter HC-172

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:

You know how I love blue! It is the perfect color in bringing other colors together as well as being a great neutral on it’s own:

Hale Navy To The Rescue!

January 5, 2013

If you have been following along with me, you know that I am in crazy love with the color navy which I wrote about here, here, and here.

Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154 is one of my favorite navy paint colors out there. This week I had a little time to play, so I took my can of Hale Navy around the house to see what I could paint! Remember my office I am working on?:

I like the California Paint Appleton painted walls, I just felt they were a bit boring. Hale Navy to the rescue!:

I love it so much more now!

What else could I find to paint? Well, this mirror in the guest room has been bothering me a bit:

I was not in love with the blue I used to paint this mirror over about a year ago. Looks to me like a fun and easy paint project!

Doesn’t the green Frog Tape look so pretty with the blue? (Thanks to Carol over at The Design Pages, I found the perfect paint tape- FrogTape. It works so well masking, that I would not use anything else now.)

TaDa!

I think it is so pretty now!

And one more project I could not resist, my bulletin board:

I masked the edges well with Frog Tape:

Now I have an original bulletin board:

I still have so many projects for my office (flooring, bookshelves), but I already feel happier when I walk in!

Have you had time for any fun little paint projects lately? Love to hear about them!

P.S. If you want a shinier finish on the accessories you paint, you can always rub a little wax, such as Annie Sloan wax, on the surface and then buff to a bright finish.

Have a great weekend everyone!
