Pittsburg Paint "Heliotrope". Has a very gray base. Heliotrope is very similar to BM Wet Concrete, WC is probably a hint lighter and slighty more muted.

This is EK's Lavender Mist - grayish purple. I will be getting rid of the matching curtains. My girls call this room the hideous room bc it is too flowery. LOL I am not sure what color bedspread/curtains I should go with to match.
Any suggestions? How about a pale yellow or just white?

Will take another when the room is fully decorated and clean (ha - belongs to my 4 year old DD!) but this is SW Free Spirit.

Lets see if I do this right! The color is a Nick (Lowes) color. I think it was sponge bob and I think it was called 'Lava' something LOL

Here is my transformation of the hideous room! The girls like it much better - but I had to keep the pillow as a reminder of my floral bedspread!

These are pix of my basement steps. The tops were the same pumpkin color, and the risers were white. I got tired of cleaning black scuff marks off the white risers. Was going to paint them black, but my gf said it would look like Halloween! Hubby suggested purple. I love purple, so thought I'd try it.

RE: Purple! Redux

Forgot to add - this was Behr's Deep Violet with Plum sponged on and then had to mix with white and sponge on. The Deep Violet and Plum were too close on the color scale.

Here is our purple bedroom. It's not totally finished yet but we love it so far. We painted the ceiling a very very light green and that helps with the INSANE amount of purple!!

This is Sherwin Williams 6827. I've forgotten the name. The color of course changes a bit with the light, this is the brightest it ever looks.

This is BM Pebble Creek. It looks very gray in low light, but clearly purple in sun and brighter light. It's not as red as Wet Concrete.
