Designer Jill Hosking-Cartland lists Revere Pewter as one of the best paint colors for small spaces.  "Most bathrooms are notoriously small, and when I'm faced with the challenge of making them feel lighter and larger, Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore is one of my go to options. It’s the perfect Greige, and when a room has a southern exposure, it takes on a not-too-pale gray cast that helps to visually expand the space. Pairing it with Ben Moore Simply White on an existing vanity cabinet and window trim, creates a gentle contrast and further helps to brighten the space."

Designer Diana Timmons states that when it comes to Revere Pewter, "there are some paint colors that have a devoted following because they are simply one of the best colors for almost any room. It has earned the reputation as the "perfect greige." Because of its perfect balance of warm and cool, it complements most accent colors. To create a color scheme with a rich greige, you'll want to include one pale neutral. The beautiful thing about a warm gray like this is that you can choose trim and cabinetry color in a warm or cool white. Revere Pewter shines with bold color accents, but is also soothing and relaxing with calm cool colors like blue or green. You'll want to sample this color before committing because like most greiges your available light can change this color from light to dark quickly."
