Taupe/beige looks great. My daughter in law had the beige carpet and did one large wall burgundy, the others 3 light sand. Beautiful.

I have a burgundy carpet, and I'd like to paint my walls. What color do you recommend? I was thinking about orange. What do you think? I live in small apartment, my furniture is beige.

An earthy gold color looks great with burgundy. You could also put some burgundy and gold striped pillows on the couch to bring the colors together. (02/12/2008)

Burgundy and orange would clash terribly (unless that's the look you're going for), they're not even in the same color family. With your beige furniture a medium pink would be better. (02/12/2008)

I have painted my walls a very light pink. They look soft and warm with the burgundy. 99% white 1% pink! (02/12/2008)

I think a light shade of beige, eggshell, off white, or a light gray would all be good choices. (02/12/2008)

Cream, beige, or mauve sound good to me. (02/12/2008)

I agree with those who said cream or light grey. A light shade of old gold would be good, too. (02/13/2008)

Go to the paint chip rack at your local Home Depot, Lowe's, wherever. Find your color of carpet, and go straight across to the oranges. The one in direct line with your burgundy color chip will be a good color choice. These displays are set up this way. I believe it works vertically as well. (02/24/2008)

RE: Painting Walls to Coordinate With Burgundy Carpet

If you have burgundy carpet it would look very loud and gaudy to paint your walls orange! Burgundy coordinates well with beige with splash of red or burgundy accessories here and there. Burgundy is very easy to contrast or coordinate with a few bits and pieces of black accessories. (05/18/2008)
