Welcome to our community Paws, 

Thank you for your question! 

On our website, we have a great application that will help you find the perfect purple for your apartment. I would encourage you to find a color that you think you might like and then go to your local Home Depot store to purchase a sample size of that color. Many times, a paint color will look different on a computer or phone screen than in real life. Purchasing a paint sample will allow you to see what the paint will look like in your home. This way you are positive you love the color before you purchase a gallon. 

There are also some really great tips on this site that will help you with your painting project. 
Click here to take a look at the Home Depot Color Center . 

If you have any more questions, please let us know!

Hey Paws,

Christine's link will help you select colors and order samples.

Beyond simply changing colors, you might consider re-designing your room to include draperies, lighting and other accent pieces.

In an earlier thread, we discussed How To Design Your Perfect Room.

In that thread, a "How To" video will show you how to coordinate an overall design for your room.

In addition, links in that thread will take you to The Home Decorator Collection where you can coordinate seating, rugs, blinds, paint, lighting, and many more accent pieces to makeover your room so you really own it!

As you move forward, selecting colors and executing design, take time to post photos of your new decor.

We'd love to see how you pull your new decor together.
