A light grey with warm undertones, revere pewter (HC-172) is a great transitional colour that works equally well on walls, ceilings, and trim from room to room. Described as the perfect "whole-house colour," this classic neutral is perfect for an open floor plan.
Dark enough to contrast nicely with whites and off-whites, but not so dramatic as to compete with bold colours, it can ground and balance a room with colourful décor, or create a serene vibe when paired with pale hues and other neutrals.
It's no wonder that gorgeous, versatile revere pewter
(HC-172) is our most searched-for colour, and is also one of designer Candice Olson's favourites.

Lots of "Likes" from Fabulous Fans
"Just did my kitchen cabinets in revere pewter! I love them. They went from dark cherry to this wonderful grey! And I painted the walls yarmouth blue (HC-150). Beautiful!"
"I used it on my bedroom ceiling. The walls are hale navy (HC-154). Beautiful combination."
"Calms and restores like drift wood found on the beach."
"Love its creamy richness—creates a great backdrop for artwork!"
"I have revere pewter throughout my house and I love it. I have an open floor plan with classic grey cabinets, eggshell quartz countertops. I chose caramel wood tone and my floors are very light white oak with a slight soft white wash. My caramel leather sofa and soft yellow accents go well with this warm neutral."
"I have used and will continue to suggest revere pewter. It has the ability to support all the layering of textures in fabrics, cabinetry without grandstanding and wanting to be the center of attention."
"I just (this week) painted our bedroom this colour and LOVE, LOVE it! It is calming and easy to accent."
"Just painted my new office this colour! I love that a historic colour looks so modern."
"I love it specifically because there are no undertones that stand out to me. Not too dark, not too light, not too yellow, no pink or green undertones like other colours I tried before discovering revere pewter. It will forever and always be my go-to neutral. Love it!"
Comments from Designers
"Love it paired with white! We used it on our back entryway 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. grey feels clean, crisp and warm all at the same time. A definite "go to" colour for many homes."
"I LOVE revere pewter and just finished an entire new build with it and it's FABULOUS... I'm madly in love with how this colour turned out!"
Raves from Retailers and Painting Pros

"I love revere pewter. I used it in our 2012 Tour Home and everybody loved it."
