  1. 1

    Select burgundy items for your room to go with the curtains. Repeat colours in a bedroom at least three times to make them look intentional and balanced in the room's design. Shop for burgundy throw pillows, carpet, a headboard, a bedspread with some burgundy in it or artwork that incorporates the colour.

  2. 2

    Choose colours for your walls to go with the burgundy curtains. Select other jewel tones for your walls and floors, such as mustard yellow or jade green if you want a very vibrant, dramatic colour scheme. Choose warm neutrals, such as beige or light grey to soften the room a bit.

  3. 3

    Select an accent colour. Use black to "ground" or "anchor" the room if you're using a jewel-tone palette with many rich hues. Make a neutral palette more sophisticated by adding black, or take the opportunity to add a splash of colour. Bring in some gold, burnt orange or sapphire blue accessories to spice up a neutral colour scheme.

  4. 4

    Look for furnishings that complement the colour scheme you've created. Use natural woods when decorating with deep, dramatic colours to keep the room from looking too visually heavy. Complement your burgundy curtains and help bring them out in a mainly neutral colour scheme by using rich, stained woods with reddish undertones or use black lacquered furniture.

  5. 5

    Feature your curtains to draw attention to them. Extend the curtains beyond the edges of the window to give it the illusion of being larger. Add tie-backs, sheers and a valance to your curtains, or flank them with sconces or artwork to draw attention to them.
