REVERE PEWTER with LRV: 55.51
Revere Pewter is in the Benjamin Historical collection of 191 colors which is inspired by the history of America’s landmarks. As per Benjamin Moore’s description “Revere Pewter is a great transitional color and is perfect for an open floor plan”. It is a favorite color for both interior and exterior application.
Revere Pewter is a light gray with warm beige undertones. Its LRV is in the middle, so it’s sitting halfway. With its LRV that is neither low nor high, it will not really bounce nor absorbs lights (natural or artificial).
LRV is the acronym for Light Reflectance Value and is best described below.
My Revere Pewter Color Observation
I painted our TV/family and our office/guest room walls with it. Well, I didn’t really do the painting, I had my painter do it. Best to leave that work to the professional, otherwise, the hubby will end up re-doing it. 🙁
After my painter completed my revere pewter room, I took some photos. I snapped them at different times of the day and with the artificial lights on and off. I have observed how the color varied in different situations. I have noticed that factors such as room exposure, the natural and artificial light, and the surrounding furnishings affected its color. At times, it appeared beige, other times, it can be viewed as muddy, other times, it picked up some greens and blues from the surrounding. It’s like a chameleon of paint colors.
With both natural and artificial lights – you will notice the beige undertone (right), the little greenish color it picked up (middle) and bluish/greenish/grey (left) – the window on your right faces East
Photo from a different angle. It may seem to appear that these walls were painted with two different colors. It picked up some blue and green colors (front & a bit on the right wall), and more beige (right).
The photo was taken during the day with only the natural light coming into the room. You will observe the beige undertone was very noticeable compared to the photo down below. The front window faces north.
Taken in the evening with the artificial light source. It appeared “muddy”. Compared to the photo above, the beige was hardly noticeable (my old beige sofa and chairs)
Colors that go with Revere Pewter
Revere Pewter works well with other colors.
In our TV/family room, I paired it with taupe faux furniture, a cream area rug, some green/orange pillows, framed white & light green pictures on the wall, and plants.
In our guest room, I paired it with white & green pillows, blue/green/white day bed cover and wall arts with orange/yellow/blue/green hues.
Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter is a color that blends harmoniously with its surrounding. However, if you find the ”muddy” gray unappealing and not clean, then this is not for you.
Revere Pewter’s versatility is what I love about it. Its ability to work so well with other colors, hence, I can change my theme and accessories as often as I want without re-painting the room. I find it very warm and cozy especially when paired with neutrals. some orange and greens.
What about you? Have you tried this color on your walls? What did you pair it with? You can share it with us here, we’d love to hear from you!
For those who are thinking of using Revere Pewter in their next project, I hope that you find this helpful.
