We used a warm gray, neutral background palette. Throughout our home, the walls are Benjamin Moore(BM) Revere Pewter and the trim is BM White Dove. On the main floor, we went with dark doors. The color is Sherwin Williams(SW) Urbane Bronze. Paint colors are so hard. Revere Pewter looks different in every room because the lighting in each room is unique. It goes with ANY color though. Right now, we have a blue and gold color accents throughout the main floor and it looks great with that. Upstairs, I have it mixed with pink and navy and it looks good with that too! It is an excellent, neutral, warm color.
The dark doors are great. WIth four kids, doors take a beating and often end up with hand prints and smudges on them. The dark doors hide all of that!
Because the home was originally built in 1972, the ceilings are 9′. I refused to use flush mount light fixtures so I spent a great deal of time searching for light fixtures that are not flush mount that do not drop down too much. The foyer light is from Circa Lighting. It is the SOLEIL LARGE PENDANT and it has a 6.5 inch drop. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/98094098110893089/

The family room is the central room of our home. One of the design features I wanted were antique beams and our flooring contractor was able to locate some in Ohio that were pulled from an old barn. They are awesome. Again, refusing to limit myself to flush mount lights, I found another light from Circa Lighting that hangs above a large ottoman. It is the MARGARITE IRON CHANDELIER. Circa has a gilded iron finish that I love. The gilded iron finish looks great with gray. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/98094098106485934/
