What color furniture would go best with this burgandy trim and curtains? I'm also open to different color walls, looking for suggestions. My boyfriend likes a couch set that is dark brown with light brown cushions, would those look okay? If so, what color curtains should I use and should we paint the walls gray or something or leave white? Thank you.
The brown furniture will be your base color, Brown is a neutral color . You can add other colors to this, like lighter colored walls like, cream, tans, white/off white, pastels, and my personal favorite Soft Gray. You can add bright colors for throw pillows if you wish. Or pick a accent color and use throughout the room. Also try putting in brown furniture decor on Pinterest and hundreds of ideas will come up, to help you out!
To match trim and mantel of fire place . Burgundy curtains with cherry wood trimed furniture and coffee table would be absolutely striking !
As a dark color, burgundy can be paired with many colors, including brown furniture. If you go that route, you may want to add a pop of color with pillows or an area rug. Depending on the vibe you want, there are shades of blue that go well with both (like a lighter shade turquoise--which is a classic feel) or shades of green if you want a retro vibe.
What a cool airy room!
The burgundy trim is actually minor and your walls really work well as they are because a change in color may make the room appear small and not so open.
Brown and tan seem like a good start (masculine) so you want some brighter colors to lend some femininity to the room.
You have nice walls to add a picture or two or a large mirror.
As to curtains; are you going to need drapes for privacy or just airy curtains?
Shades of blue with even a touch of black might work.
I always suggest that a good way to 'see' your room with different color schemes to to visit Lowe's or Home Depot and show them your pictures as they have an awesome computer program that can put any color in your room as well as place furniture anywhere you wish.

I like the white.
You have a lot going on in that room already so I'd keep the wall color very subdued. Maybe an ivory or bone, something like that.
Pick a tint of the burgundy, pale brownish rose, something that is the same color family, but much lighter. From the picture the room looks long and narrow, so something that will make the room look larger and especially wider might be best.
How about a medium green with a slightly yellowish tone?

My bathroom is burgundy and very light pink. I also use a seafoam green for accents.
I have a pair of sheets from the 80s. The fitted sheet has burgundy roses tied with blue ribbons on a very light gray background & the flat sheet is a dark charcoal color. I always wanted to do a room in those colors with light gray walls, charcoal trim & burgundy for either the carpet, furniture or accessories and maybe blue pillows.
What color do I paint the living room walls? I have black furniture, wrought iron with glass tables, and burgundy carpet and curtains? I am wanting to sell.

I would paint the walls a taupe-grey color.
I would go with a neutral, a taupe, beige or very light gray. Any of those would work and any prospective buyer would not find them offensive.
Unless the room is very large, I would go with an off white. White makes a room look larger and it goes with everything.
Taupe/beige looks great. My daughter in law had the beige carpet and did one large wall burgundy, the others 3 light sand. Beautiful.
My bedroom has burgundy carpet and a bed that is gray (medium gray. I would like a lighter gray for walls. What type of gray paint is light, but has no blue tones?
A slate gray with golden hues. Any paint store can help you.
Nice looking headboard. You have the foundation for several colors as accents to go with your gray walls.

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.
