What colours should I paint a wall with a burgundy couch?

It’s often the case that people choose their furniture after they decide on the other colours in the room. However, sometimes you want to redecorate without having to get rid of your favourite couch, or maybe you’ve moved house and the walls just don’t match your things. A deep burgundy couch exudes luxury and comfort, so you need a paint scheme that does it justice.

Pale blue

The deep red with pale blue is a classic combination that creates a sophisticated charm. Finished with white and more red trims and accessories will make for a stately and elegant room. You will also be displaying your patriotic side with the nation’s colours adorning your living room.


Burgundy and green is a very natural combination that brings the outdoors indoors in the best possible way. You can go all earthy with deep greens or choose lighter, brighter greens. The combination will make the room comfortable and warm, and although they are also the colours of Christmas they definitely work all year round.


A very neutral grey will let the walls step back and give the floor to your furniture and accessories. They will be allowed to speak for themselves in a room that has a clean, but not cold, feel. Your burgundy sofa can take centre stage if you want, but the soft grey will also allow it to blend with the rest of the room so it doesn’t stand out too much and look out of place.


This combination again draws on colours seen in nature, but if you’re hesitant about slapping yellow paint all over your living room remember there is a big selection of shades out there, including many muted mustards. They go very well together to bring warmth and cosiness to your room. This combination can work particularly well if you have wood in the room, like beams.
