Light Reflectance Value

Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.

With an LRV of 58, Accessible Beige is slightly lighter than Revere Pewter (LRV 55).

This is going to be especially obvious in a darker or north-facing room, where Revere Pewter can feel much more shadowy when compared to accessible beige.


The tan undertones in Accessible Beige make it feel warmer than Revere Pewter, which has a bit of green to it. While Revere Pewter is definitely warm toned, that green cools it down to a bit closer to neutral.

Cool lighting, like a north facing window or LED light bulbs, will make Revere Pewter feel even more neutral and less warm.

Accessible Beige, on the other hand, is more likely to go slightly pink, which a lot of people are turned off by.

How do I decide between these two colors?

Honestly, these two shades of beige are so similar that you really need to swatch them in your actual space to see which you prefer.

They can each be a little bit of a chameleon and change in different lighting situations, so it’s super important to do a large swatch and put it on each wall of your room, because the light hits each walls angles slightly differently, and it can look like a totally different color on different sides of the same room.

Look at it in the day, and night, lights on the lights off, until you decide which you prefer.
