Without further ado... Revere Pewter at 50%



these photos were not edited or altered to show the truest color possible, the photos were taken around 10 am
This room is now 40% complete so it is still a work in progress , but the painting is finished, I used BM revere pewter at 50% strength
I wanted to keep an over all light look , I was looking for an non color color, and that is just what I got, it is a soft warmer grey a great neutral.

We still need to tackle removing the carpet and installing wood flooring and finding a large area rug. That will be fun .


So what do you think? Sometimes when I am at the Home Depot paint counter I am in complete shock at the colors people choose to paint their walls, intense and I mean intense colors seem to be a big seller, which is why I get questioned by the paint associates when they see my paler shades.
I always say the wall color should not be the first thing you see , it should be the background. Although I am loving my deep blue slate dining room I would not be able to live with that kind of intensity every where, I crave light and airy most of all.

One more time this paint color is Benjamin moore's Revere Pewter in flat , mixed in CIL dulux paint at Home Depot.
