This color is an excellent replacement for white as it adds enough color to your space without looking too bold. Revere pewter works with every pattern, color and style. All in all, this color is a great choice for your home.
To add warmth and coziness to your space, opt for beige. Beige is a color that most designers say is a fail-safe color. It’s timeless and you can’t put a date on it. So if incorporating a color that will look good on your walls for a long time is your main focus then beige is perfect for you. To make use of beige in your home, use shades that have warm undertones to it. You can also mix two or more shades to get your desired color.
Gray is a very trendy color that’s really in this season. It can be used as an alternative for white. A lot of designers call this color their go-to shade. Gray is a sophisticated color that gives you a perfect balance between beige and white. To add a bold and dramatic touch to your space, use darker grays. Dark grays can also prove to be amazing backdrops for antique and vintage furnishings or decoration pieces. For a softer effect, use lighter grays.
