What color is Revere Pewter?

Also known as 973 Ice Formations, Revere Pewter is one of Benjamin Moore’s best selling paint colors. According to Benjamin Moore, it’s an “iconic neutral that provides a versatile bridge between warm and cool tones.” That indicates that it works with many different colors.

Revere Pewter has a light reflective value of 55.05, meaning that it’s a mid-tone color. Not too dark, not too light.

It does tend to have cooler neutral undertones when it’s painted on walls and looks best in west and south facing rooms. But it’s a beautiful, classic color that safely can be used anywhere in your home.

Which colors coordinate with Revere Pewter?

With it’s cooler appearance, coordinating colors for Revere Pewter should also have cool undertones. I’ve studied all of my Benjamin Moore color samples in various lighting scenarios and chosen several colors that would all work well with it.

Revere Pewter Coordinating Colors – Blues

Mt. Rainier Gray

Don’t let the name fool you. Mt. Rainier Gray is a mix of icy blue and cool gray and the blue definitely shows up on a large wall surface. It’s a medium tone (not super light, not super dark) and would be beautiful in any room. LRV 59.48

Feather Gray

Slightly cooler than Mt. Rainier Gray, Feather Gray is also a mid-tone color. As you can see in the image below, it looks lovely with the sofa that’s a darker version of Revere Pewter.

Tranquility is a lighter blue with a mix of sage and gray. And it’s a great complementary color for Revere Pewter either as an accent wall or in an adjoining room.

Revere Pewter Coordinating Colors – Monochromatic Hues

Edgecomb Gray HC-173

Edgecomb Gray is the next lighter shade of Revere Pewter on the Benjamin Moore color palette. Also known as 972 Alaskan Skies and OC-15 Baby Fawn, it’s one of their best selling neutrals year after year. It could be a whole-house color since it’s so versatile.

Natural Cream OC-14

Also known as 1521 Nature’s Essentials, Natural Cream is about a half shade lighter than Revere Pewter. According to Benjamin Moore, it’s “a light greige that flatters both warm and cool color schemes”. It has undertones that are ever-so-slightly more yellow than Revere Pewter, but if used in the next room it would just look like a lighter version.

The lighting in every room is different most of the time the exact same color will look different in adjoining rooms. It’s just the way it is.

Seapearl OC-19

Seapearl is an off-white with cool gray undertones. Also known as China White, it’s been a popular color from Benjamin Moore for decades. It’s lighter than Edgecomb Gray or Natural Cream so it would be great for a room that doesn’t get much natural light.

Ashley Gray

Ashley Gray has basically the same undertones as Revere Pewter but darker. It’s also known as Waynesboro Taupe 1544 and Shenandoah Taupe AC-36. And it has the tiniest hint of violet undertones in certain lighting, as does Revere Pewter.

Pashmina

A little darker than Revere Pewter, it would be nice for an accent wall or an adjoining room. This sophisticated bedroom is painted in Pashmina. I love the contrast of the white bedding.

Paint Sampling Tips

I always recommend sampling any paint color before applying it to your walls. You can do this several ways, including painting a section of your wall, painting a small foam board that can be moved around the room, or using peel and stick samples.

When sampling paint colors, always look at them during various times of the day since they will appear different depending on lighting. If possible, see how they look on a cloudy day, at night, and on a sunny day.

Peel & Stick Samples

The peel and stick samples are my favorite way to sample colors. Why? Because they’re super easy to use, are made with real paint, are reusable, and you don’t even have to wash out a paint brush. I’ve used them myself and love them. Get them here: Peel & Stick Paint Samples
