Top Searched Paint Color

October 31, 2012



If you were to guess what is the number one searched color on my blog, which color would you guess? Navy Blue?



A pretty emerald green maybe?:


Those might be my top guesses. The number one color searched on my Restyling Home By Kelly Blog is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172:


A soft greenish gray, Revere Pewter works well in any room of the home:





I have been writing this blog for almost three years now, and today it is still the top searched paint color both daily and over all time:



And then the other day, a reader wrote and asked if I would please post a few pictures of rooms painted with Revere Pewter. So these are for you Alexis!



I love this gray paired with black:





I am glad to have Revere Pewter as one of my large sample boards, because it still is a favorite neutral of mine and I find a lot of my clients are attracted to it. A light gray with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that works well with both contemporary and traditional design. I have found Revere Pewter is perfect for an open floor plan:



So, if you are searching for Revere Pewter to see if this color will work in your home, I think you found a winner! Grab a sample and give it a try!

  1. I definitely have that color in my arsenal, but I don’t use it all that often. It’s often used on exteriors, but I’ve found it reads a bit pinky here in my part of the country. I’m really not sure why that is – if it’s the quality of light or all the green trees everywhere. I have found that I can get a similar look without the pink undertone if I use Seattle Mist. Do you ever use that one?

    • That’s exactly what I think too Kristie- Revere Pewter on exteriors shows up pink to me! Green undertones but shows as pink!:) Seattle Mist is pretty- do you see a lot of green in it? I have not used yet.

  2. Sorry but my home does not do any “gray” well. In most of the pictures there are large windows with no window coverings. I don’t have large windows and need coverings for privacy. It may be popular but in my small ranch it just doesn’t work.
