Benjamin Moore (BM) Gotham or Granite with Revere Pewter
mrsmoose7December 21, 2013
I have a 20x14 ft family room with a cathedral ceiling, which I am in the midst of redecorating. After a couple of weeks or searching and what seems like gathering hundreds of paint chips, I settled on BM Revere Pewter for my main paint color. The 4th wall features a black marble fireplace with white wood surround/mantel and two long sunburst windows. This being my feature wall will be painted a darker accent color. I need help in deciding what gray to put on it - I tried SW Mink, but that looked very taupey/brown in the daytime, though it darkened to gray at night. I think it's a choice between BM Granite or BM Gotham. What do you say? Any input would be appreciated. Also, I would love some recommendations for paint color for the wooden fireplace surround and the baseboards and trim around the room - I would like something relatively neutral/flexible as this room opens upto the kitchen.
