Revere Pewter Alternatives

As I’m coming up to my 2 year anniversary with Benjamin Moore, I can still stand by the number 1 thing that I’ve learned, and it’s this: just because a colour is popular, doesn’t mean it’s right for your home. Revere Pewter is the chameleon colour that looks a little bit different in every home it’s used in. I’ve seen it appear olive green (most commonly), as a bit of a cold blue, and in natural daylight, it appears as the perfect true greige. Through trial and error with Revere Pewter, I’ve found these other colours to be really good alternatives. If my client hates green but wants Revere Pewter, I direct them to Collingwood. If my client wants Revere Pewter, but a little bit darker, that’s when I use Silver Fox or Thunder. Revere Pewter, but a little bit lighter? Pale Oak.

It’s okay to be interested in what’s on trend –
but be sure that it works for your home and your personal style!

Have a great day!

  1. This is the post I have been looking for! I also, love Revere Pewter, but don’t want it to go to the green side. I will be looking into these suggestions!

  2. I to just used revere pewter in my dining room and it’s a like/hate deal. I see green, blue and silver throughout the day. Now i was hoping to use this throughout my house but im second guessing it. Could you suggest a warm gray with a brown tone that would coordinate with revere pewter.

  3. We painted a few rooms in Collingwood and we love it. Its not too cool or warm. Goes well with our Simply White trim. We also used Balboa Mist…the lighter version of Collingwood. We may paint our foyer, stairwell, and upstairs hallway in Classic Gray. I think Classic Gray would compliment dark stained trim and floors.

  4. HI

    I have white kitchen cabinets with black granite countertops. My kitchen walls are Ben Moore Gray Owl. I am looking for a medium gray to paint my kitchen island- chelsea gray and kendall charcoal are too dark. Any suggestions? thanks

  5. I painted pale oak in my kitchen, I like the color, when less light, it shows grey which I like, but shows a little yellowish tone under a lot lights. I want something more lighter, but still can show the contrast with the trim, and less yellowish, less warm, show more true grey for hallway way, my hallway is big sapce, have enough light, the floor is classic oak color. I am considering OC-22, OC-23, OC-26, CC-80, which is better? Or any other suggest? Thank you!

    1. Hey Helen! I have Pale Oak in my house and it’s yellow toned in the light as well. If you want something that shows more true gray you can try OC-28 Collingwood or OC-23 Classic Gray.

  6. Hi, I recently painted my living room/dining room Seattle Mist which is similar to Revere Pewter. I want to paint my foyer and wanted something lighter that would look good next to living room color. I was thinking about going just one step lighter than Seattle Mist which is Rodeo. I kind of want something with a little more gray tone. Any thoughts? I have Stonington Gray as an option but I think its blue undertone will show through too much.

    1. Hey Cindy, I do think Stonington Gray would be a little too blue beside Seattle Mist.

  7. I am considering the Cullingwood or classic gray for my open space first floor town house, Would you go with white dove for the trim and what do you think about painting all doors a darker grey?

    1. I’m a big fan of White Dove, I would definitely use it with Collingwood and Classic Gray!
      And I do like the look of painting interior doors, however it is something I could personally see myself growing tired of. In our house, we painted just the interior of our front door in a charcoal gray! Totally up to your personal taste though.

  8. I am using Balboa Mist for my condo. I’m looking for a darker version of Collingwood…maybe Thunder? My decorator suggested Collingwood 25% darker. It’s a south facing room with lots of natural light. Also, do you have any opinions on the Aura flat paint for bathrooms? Really moisture resistant?
