Oooh I love Revere Pewter in pictures. I plan on using it in a nursery some day (hopefully, lol).

We do! We used Martha Stewart Cement Gray, but we almost went with Benjamin Moore Moonshine. I love the color you mentioned though, its very popular!

@Coral99:  just to throw another grey in the mix, we used dolphin fin by behr in our living room. its a really nice, soft grey. i think when we move we might want something a bit more on the bold side of grey, but if you want a good neutral light grey, dolphin fin is really pretty and soft.

We haven’t used Revere Pewter. I know it’s a popular color, but it just doesn’t read right in our lighting. That said, if you haven’t already, go over to Houzz and search for Revere Pewter kitchen and you will get a ton of results. Happy color choosing!

@Coral99:  Oooh, Revere Pewter is so nice; it’s such a soft dove-grey.    

I used PPG’s Pittsburgh Paints Gray Marble in our second bedroom, which will someday be a (gender neutral) nursery.  It’s beautiful!

A grey kitchen would be awesome!

We wanted to paint our living room Revere Pewter but in our light it was a disgusting mossy green/dirty grey. 🙁 Very dissapointing as it looks so lovely in other people’s homes! We ended up going with a griege from Behr, but I can’t remember the name.

@Coral99:  There are PPG Pittsburgh Paint stores, plus some hardware places sell them.  You can go to their website and plug in your zip code and that will let you know the closest retailer.  Around here (in Pittsburgh) it’s sold everywhere, but nationally I’m not sure.   

Good luck and have fun choosing!

@Coral99:  Just a thought. Are you using an actual paint swatch (bigger is better) or a paint color card that you pick up in the store? There are several colors that I thought I would LOVE based on the color cards. But when I bought the sample size cans and made real paint swatch cards on poster board they looked a lot different (and I lost the love for them). I mainly had this issue with Farrow & Ball paints, but I think it holds true for most paint manufacturers. Choosing the colors for our entire lower level was a lot of trial and error with sample cans and homemade paint swatches.Whatever you do, don’t settle. Keep working with the sample cans until you find “the one”. Otherwise you’ll always look it your color with a touch of regret… and regretting something you look at every day just isn’t fun.

Other colors to look into- Shale/Edgecomb Gray/Abalone/Collingwood/Stonington Gray/Thunder (Benjamin Moore), Gull (Martha Stewart), Repose Gray/Grayish/Big Chill (Sherwin Williams)

Get test pots of a few different colors made, and cut up white poster board into 6ths and paint them, leaving them out so you can see them in all the different lights the room gets. It’ll really tell you how the colors look and let you live with them for a week or so without committing to them!

Love gray!! We have BM “steel wool” in our bedroom and a darker more charcoal BM color as an accent wall in our master bath!

@Coral99:  We used revere pewter in our living room, dining room and entryway! We love it so much and get tons and tons of compliments on it 🙂 it really changes based on the light though. During the day it’s a nice warm beige/gray but at night with indoor lighting it has a greenish tinge.
