The DIY divas of TikTok are at it again with another viral paint colour trend. To our surprise, the paint colour isn’t a gothy grey or Barbiecore pink — it’s actually Pewter Green. The question is: what makes this paint colour so popular? Is it the boldness or neutrality in the shade? Or is it its incredible versatility? Any which way you paint the story, we’re totally here for this new colour takeover to transform our living spaces.
Choosing a paint colour for your home can be a very personal endeavor. The goal isn’t to create a space for someone else, but rather a space that expresses you as an individual. With that said, trends come and go, so it’s important to know the facts before committing to something as labor-intensive as painting your home. Here’s what to know ahead of taking the Pewter Green colour plunge:
What Colour is Pewter Green?
Which Rooms Fit Pewter Green Best?
The best rooms to paint in this versatile shade are living rooms and common spaces like dens or offices. Let this hue act as the statement colour, and pair it with softer, neutral shades. Most living room designs tend to attract more natural light as well, which better showcase the green elements of the colour, versus emphasizing the grey undertones. But at the end of the day, the colour is yours to make your own. It can look stunning in a cooking space too, as these green kitchen designs prove.
What Colours Match Best With Pewter Green?
When looking to complement a deep muted shade like Pewter Green, there are a few things to consider: lighting, decor and space. Introducing deeper greens into a room works especially well when the structure has higher ceilings and at least a moderate amount of natural light. Combined, paint colours like soft peaches, sandy beiges and pearly whites can work beautifully with darker shades of green. Consider trying Dune Grass, Canyon Wind or Minestrone by Behr (pictured above).
