Try Valspar's Vibrant Violet for a similar purple, and Valspar's Pistachio Tint for a similar green.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
VioletI love the way this setting reads: It begins with a small cluster of purple flowers (looks like Geranium 'Rozanne') and then continues to the purple front door and accent pot. A triple-treat! Some of our most beloved garden flowers, such as lilacs and hydrangeas, are purple. But purple is not just an old-fashioned, nostalgic color. It can be quite modern in its application. Color experts say that because it is a mix of both energizing red and calming blue, purple is a complex color that works well with both warm and cool schemes.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Garden Color: How to Landscape With Purple
A trio of purple — plants, a pot and a painted front door — greets visitors to this charming residence.When to Paint Your Door Purple
3. Purple Door With an Olive Green and Taupe ExteriorThis door sports a beautiful cool bluish purple that helps it stand out against the olive-green and light taupe siding. I like how the landscaping picks up the house's exterior colors and the warm-hued pavers offer a clean, welcoming path to the front door.
8. Add landscaping. If your exterior paint went on brighter than you expected, but you don't want to repaint, try investing in landscaping instead. Lush green foliage and blooming flowers can go a long way toward helping your house fit in with its surroundings. The gorgeous home and garden courtyard shown here use color to great effect, with the green and purple of the home repeated in the landscape, drawing the eye in.Just as with interior paint (or even more so) it is important to test exterior paint on your house before committing. Test all of the colors you're considering using (siding, trim, front door) to be sure they work together as well as individually.
