Is there any way at all to revive my poor plant?

I bought this wonderful plant 6 months ago or so. Unfortunately I can no longer remember what type of plant it is. The leaves have a coleus-like pattern to them that are dark purple and green, and it can grow in indirect light.
It started to grow nicely, but then I did something to mess things up and now its dying if not already dead.
I might not have taken it into the house quickly enough when it started to get cold. I might have given it too much water. The attempted transplant into a bigger pot may have made things worse. I have no idea. But almost all the leaves have dried up. The base of the main stem is turning a sickly tan color, and I think it might be spreading. I started pulling the dead leaves off because I thought that's what I was supposed to do, but now there are hardly no leaves left.
If there's any hope at all, I really don't want to throw it out. Does anyone have any suggestions?
