Decorating your living room with a brown and burgundy colour scheme will give your home a rich look. Burgundy, which is a deep wine hue, complements dark chocolate brown. Lighten up the look by decorating with white, ecru or beige accents and paint. A brown and burgundy decor palette will infuse your living room with an elegant flair. Enhance the look with polished wood pieces and sophisticated patterns.
Paint the living room walls a light shade. Set the stage for dark brown and burgundy decor by splashing the walls with a fresh white, cream or beige colour.
Choose a chocolate or espresso brown couch and chair set. Pick leather upholstery for a rich look or a cotton fabric for a casual style. Enhance the couch with a burgundy throw blanket and matching decorative pillows.
Buy dark wood furniture for an elegant look. Pick a coffee table and entertainment centre constructed of polished cherry or teak wood. Create a cohesive look by choosing a standing lamp with a dark wood base and a white or cream-coloured shade.
Decorate with a large area rug. If you have hardwood or tile flooring, choose an opulent rug featuring rich colours and patterns. Look for an Oriental or a modern geometric-patterned floor covering displaying shades of dark brown, burgundy, gold and sage green.
Add brown and burgundy accent pieces. Fill an artsy brown ceramic vase with white and deep red-coloured flowers, such as roses and calla lilies. As an elegant touch, display a glass bowl filled with water and floating burgundy candles on the coffee table.
