Need help with color selection.

SW Urban Putty is on the left and BM Revere Pewter is on the right. I started painting my entire front rooms BM Revere Pewter, but it is looking really cold. I really want a warm, cozy, inviting home. Is it possible to get this affect with gray? (btw, eventually, we are going to paint the trim white) Thank you for any advice!

I think the greenish color with white trimming would look nice. I guess it depends on your furniture

Have you tried Grant Beige? It has a little more gray than Urban Putty and is still warm.

I am looking for a new sofa and chairs. The red cabinet and trunk are the only pieces I have that are nice and that I love. My husband has a big brown leather recliner that has to stay. Besides that, I just have a collection of hand me down furniture. Should I find an inspiration starter, like some fabric, to jump start my project?

@gtlaura I haven't tried that one. I've had about 20 different colors on my wall. Its so confusing! I have tried SW Accessible Beige, which I like as well.

Take a look at BM Edgecomb gray or SW Popular Gray.

SW 6078 Realist Beige or SW 6072 Versatile Gray will work with your current furnishings. Good Luck!

The one on the left is more appealing because it works well with your warm floor color. The gray you have on the right (cool tone) is going to clash with the warm tone of the floor. I'm not sure you can get away with a gray color as it would seem most fall under the cool category...maybe a type of gray mixed in with another color might work..maybe someone here knows of one. But I think the warm wall colors are going to be more appealing overall because your floors are such a warm tone.

Hi, may I be so bold as to ask how far you got with the pewter? The reason is that layering warm and cool hues is so interesting. Warm layered on warm can also be good but sometimes a little muddy. If you go with the pewter, add black and white, metallics, could be super cool global eclectic. Maybe add in an artwork that combines warm and cool...enjoy the process, it's all about your comfort.
