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.

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.
By Lori from Chicago, IL
I would paint the walls a taupe-grey color.
White. Sets off the carpet.
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.
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.
