Looking for grey/violet paint?

mandyfin73November 22, 2012

Hi - I am looking for a suggestion for my new master bedroom. I chose some lavender and purple bedding. The floors are light wood. The windows are facing east if that helps.

I'm looking for a grey/lavender that will complement the bedding and not pull too cold. Not sure if I should be looking at green or blue or violet undertones.

The office across the hall will be in a color in the same family - probably more grey and the halls are beige.

What do you suggest please?

I have color decks everywhere :)

Thanks

These are all great colors by Behr. I have used Behr and Benjamin Moore paints for around 26 years they both last the same (same hardiness) they both catch the light as most paints do. The screen shots do make these colors look a bit more vibrant than real life.

This may be too much for you, but it's BM tropical dusk.

Would be helpful if you posted a pic of the bedding....

Here is Ben Moor Pigeon Gray. The darker gray on the same chip is Dior Gray which is also very striking.

BM Feather is a gorgeous gray/lavender and looks stunning with light wood floors.

You might try SW Rhinestone. I have it and it is light and goes slightly lavender with most light. I don't mention it to my husband. His color perception isn't as strong as mine.

BM's Slip.

I was also going to suggest Pigeon Gray. But look at the slip. We did my daughter's room in the last house in that color. It was exquisite.

Here's a couple of pictures, you know how the light can change the color. The headboard is white for reference. The middle photo is probably the best representation of the color.

Another vote for F&B Brassica.
Beautifully subtle, and not the least bit pink, which I think works better with your bedding.

Bee's room is lovely, but different from yours in that her purples look pinker than yours, so the pinky lavender is good there.
