Decorating Ideas for Burgundy Curtains
Decorate your room around the burgundy curtains. (luxury curtain image by Andrejs Pidjass from

Your room has burgundy curtains--now it's time to decorate the rest of the room. Selecting a colour scheme provides a natural, elegant look and feel to the room and emphasises 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 grey sheer curtains behind the burgundy curtains. Tie back the curtains during the day to allow natural light in the room. Select tieback colours in the same colour 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 grey colour to complement the burgundy. Light beige or grey creates a subtle, luxurious look and feel to the room. Because your curtains are dark, a light colour 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 grey in the room, paint the walls light beige and the ceiling grey.


If your room is a bedroom, select solid burgundy-coloured sheets for your bed. Purchase a comforter that has burgundy and an accent colour--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 colour--for example, light beige or grey, and place burgundy-coloured toss pillows on the furniture.


Accessorise the room with burgundy, black, tan and grey items. These colours 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 colour black. The colour black works well when bringing in another dark colour in a room with burgundy curtains.
