How do I make lavender color?
Start with a little at first. If you are mixing it with white powdered sugar (such as in cake frosting) a larger ratio of powdered sugar will make a softer shade of lavender. For a darker lavender, add more of the red-blue blend. Add more drops of blue to your frosting if you want to move from lavender to purple.
What colors make gray look less purple?
Yellow-toned wood such as oak, yellow upholstery, fabrics or art intensify the purple undertone in the gray paint. Instead, use brown or tan wood in the room to invoke a warmer color on gray walls. Soft white, cream, tan and brown colors on upholstery and fabrics make the wall appear more gray and less purple.
