Lisa Vanderpump is no stranger to design. In fact, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and restaurateur designed all 26 of the businesses she and husband Ken Todd have owned over the years (including, of course, famed spots Villa Blanca and SUR). When she was looking for a little color inspiration for her newest venue, PUMP Restaurant in West Hollywood, she knew exactly who to consult: her friend and fellow Bravo TV alum Jeff Lewis. With a new paint line, Jeff Lewis Color, on shelves, the designer was just the man to help her find a gorgeous palette.

To keep the space feeling subdued, Lewis and Vanderpump initially looked at gray and taupe swatches, “and all those safe colors,” as she describes them. “Lisa is very on-trend, and she knows that gray is one of the hottest colors right now,” Lewis says. “But she wanted something that was really kind of calm, light-to-medium, and soothing.” The pair found the perfect soft gray for the space in Jeff Lewis Color Dusk.

“We didn’t want to do all gray, so we did use a medium beige tone called Canvas, which has a little bit of a gray wash,” Lewis says.
