Revere Pewter is often called a muddy color – this just means that it has a bit of brown to it.
It’s very important to swatch colors on your wall to be sure they look good – day and night – in your actual space before committing.
Since this color is so neutral, it is perfect for a whole house paint color.
I love the medium or mid-toned color depth. That means that it is great even if your room is very bright – it won’t get washed out.
If your room is dark and poorly lit, this color will look darker or muddier. It might not be a great fit for darker rooms!
This is also a popular pick for gray kitchen cabinets. This is a great case to pair Revere Pewter cabinets or trim with white walls!
Revere Pewter is also excellent for the exterior of a home. It has just enough pigment that the bright sunlight won’t wash it completely out! The natural lighting will warm it up and have it leaning more beige than gray.
