A surprising array of colors can be used in drapes to pair with a burgundy sofa and recliner. Whether you choose fresh cream, intimate rose or a complementary green or blue shade, the curtain and furniture colors will form a powerful colour dynamic. Along with wall colour, add accessories and trim to round out the room’s colour scheme. For best results, collect swatches and samples to evaluate in the room’s setting prior to making final colour selections.
Cream and Neutrals
Think cream and strawberries for a fresh color scheme which suits any decor design. Cream or off-white drapes and walls provide an airy background for the burgundy furniture, however when this looks too stark for you, deepen the curtain colors to shades of beige, tan or taupe. Accent colors which would enhance this plot include rose, olive green, sea foam, or colonial blue. Trim colors in dark neutrals such as walnut brown, ebony or charcoal grey will help balance the general appearance of the room.
Set your burgundy furniture using drapes in a medium rose tone, walls in a lighter pink along with a rug or rug slightly deeper than the curtain shade. Paint the trim in a really deep burgundy or charcoal grey to ground the setting. To enliven this monochromatic color scheme, choose a mixture of intriguing textures, such as linen-weave drapes, textured plaster walls and a sculptured pile rug. Accessories in off-white include a bright counterpoint. For a complex edgy look, mix in metallic accents in pewter, hammered silver or stainless steel.
Muted greens such as olive, sage and moss green complement the reddish tones from burgundy furniture. For a restful, nature-inspired motif, choose curtains in a medium shade of green with off-white or beige walls, natural or dark wood furnishings and fabric accessories which tie the burgundy, tan and green colors together. Then light up the colour scheme with warm or copper gold accents.
Colonial blue drapes with burgundy furniture, off-white walls with deep burgundy and navy blue accents and dark wood trim indicate an Americana decor motif. Tie it together with cushion covers, throw blankets and table runners in burgundy, blue and off-white stripes, stars or plaids. Finish with themed accessories, including weathered woods or metals. The exact same colour scheme can also indicate French country decor by shifting to toile or floral print fabrics, together with suitable accessories.
