Decorating Ideas for Burgundy Curtains


Your room has burgundy curtains--now it's time to decorate the rest of the room. Selecting a color scheme provides a natural, elegant look and feel to the room and emphasizes the burgundy curtains. Incorporating too much burgundy takes away from the curtains, which should be a focal point in the room.


  • Highlight your burgundy curtains in the room. Extend the curtains past the window, from floor to ceiling. Hang beige or gray sheer curtains behind the burgundy curtains. Tie back the curtains during the day to allow natural light in the room. Select tieback colors in the same color as the sheers on the window to complement them. The tiebacks add an added decorative touch to your curtains, making them the focal point of the room.

Paint Color

  • Paint the walls in the room a light beige or gray color to complement the burgundy. Light beige or gray creates a subtle, luxurious look and feel to the room. Because your curtains are dark, a light color works well on the walls in the room. Don't forget to paint the ceiling as well. If you wish to use both light beige and gray in the room, paint the walls light beige and the ceiling gray.


  • If your room is a bedroom, select solid burgundy-colored sheets for your bed. Purchase a comforter that has burgundy and an accent color--for example, burgundy and tan. This creates a balanced look and feel to the bedroom because the walls are painted light beige. If your room is not a bedroom, select furniture in a light color--for example, light beige or gray, and place burgundy-colored toss pillows on the furniture.


  • Accessorize the room with burgundy, black, tan and gray items. These colors work well in a room with burgundy curtains as the focal point of the room. Place accessories throughout the room--for example, black wall sconces create a romantic look to the room.

Wall Art

  • Hang black wall art in your room--for example, black picture frames, a black clock or a variety of different wall accessories in the color black. The color black works well when bringing in another dark color in a room with burgundy curtains.
