Happy Huesday! Revere Pewter HC-172

warm gray benjamin mooreThis week’s huesday hue is not only the number one searched for color on benjaminmoore.com but it’s also the perfect compliment to our 2013 Color of the Year, lemon sorbet. Today we’re highlighting revere pewter HC-172, a light gray with warm undertones.

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that gray raced into the design world to replace beige as the “It” neutral. This quiet neutral has shaken off its bad rap and is no longer only associated with dreary days, serious attire and a gloomy outlook.  Revere pewter is a classic shade of gray that creates a unifying look that calms and restores.

This mood board shows how revere pewter is synonymous with style, sophistication and glamour. huesday benjamin moore revere pewter warm grayMontauk Nest Chair/West Elm ::  revere pewter bedroom/Traditional Home :: grey votives/GlassyBaby :: revere pewter HC-172/Benjamin Moore :: gray gown/Vera Wang :: grey inspiration/Pinterest  :: warm gray kitchen/ Decor Pad :: Cynthia throw pillow/Etsy :: frenchie clutch/Flutter Boutiqe :: Tribal Peacock Fabric/Spoonflower

Don’t limit the popular color to the indoors. Here an eclectic palette brings out the cottage charm of this Craftsman style bungalow. Light, warm gray is cooled by the blue–green tones of the trim color, and accented by a muted orange on the door.

  1. this color is crazy popular at our store !! SO many people buy it for every room of their houses and main areas … because it goes with EVERYTHING its so easy to find accent colors to go with it :) we love it !

  2. Love it paired with white! We used it on our back entry way upper walls with white paneled wainscoting below and some black accent accessories. It’s great to carry out the modern cottage feel of our home. Gray feels clean, crisp and warm all at the same time. A definite “go to” color for many homes.

  3. i love the pewter gray i used pike peak grey benjomin moore paint in my living room with silver and royal blue love it i always loved grey really nice new shade

  4. Revere Pewter is the “bridge” between beige and gray – it’s a great choice for those trying to update a space. However, it’s not always the right choice – it can read a bit pinky in certain situations and lighting conditions. Seattle Mist is very similar, but has more of a green undertone rather than pink.

  6. I wanted so badly to use Revere Pewter in my living room and kitchen (open floor plan). But when I put a sample amount on my walls it looked gold?!? I was so disappointed. However, it looked beautiful in my hallway and foyer. I went with Light Pewter in the living and kitchen with an accent wall in Brandon Beige, which we are also using for the home office.

  8. I love this on the exterior of my home. Warm and light/bright, and not exactly gray. I have bright white trim and some copper roofing, a traditional 1920′s colonial with a new addition. I am looking for a dark gray, nearly black or dark slate color to replace the old black shutters. Any suggestions??
