Burgundy, garnet, red wine, dark red, red brown… many names for a colour that intoxicates us every autumn, and warms our decorative efforts up to no end! It is wonder, burgundy is a versatile and timeless colour. Sometimes tending to brown, sometimes purple, it remains elegant, warm and glamorous. So, let's take a look at the ever-trendy and in thing for autumn—burgundy.

Accessories

If you aren't daring enough to take on an entire room in burgundy, opt for accessories such as vases, candles or pillowcases. The advantage of this deep red is that it is a natural colour that will go well with wood, silk, wool or leather; perhaps even revealing their full potential.

Burgundy is one of the only colours that can afford a total and holistic look. As we see here, in this beautiful and luxurious shower. The mosaic tiles are elegant and easy to match with other colours such as white, cream or grey. What a fabulous exotic and deep colour palette to relax you whilst in the shower or bath. 

Glamour

For an extra dose of chic and glamour, add a golden touch to burgundy. Considered the colour of kings and emperors, garnet brings a real regal touch to your home. Return to the old school glamour of the elite with these luxurious and elegant chaise lounges. 

Versatile

Burgundy is a particularly good choice for a kitchen, if you want a strong colour that goes with white and other lighter shades. This rich red, which may accompany a good glass of pinot noir, blurs the lines of reality and lets you feel as though you are being lead into a fictional space worthy of David Lynch.

Burgundy is also a suitable choice for modern apartments where minimalism and simplicity reign supreme as it is lively, warm and comfortable. Minimalist furniture in burgundy therefore immediately takes another dimension, far richer and more interesting. 

Adaptable

Another advantage of burgundy: it adapts to almost any contrasting colour. This includes grey, black, white as well as brown, beige, green, blue or gold—the colour fits all. We particularly like its combination with bright yellow and orange, or put together with a timeless ensemble of black and white.

Are you a fan of classic styled furniture, but would prefer to divert it a little? Look no further than this Chersterfield sofa in this stunning shade of burgundy. This tone works well with a wooden, antique coffee table, but it's a bit more whimsical and less generic than the dark brown. A fine compromise!  

All in all, we find that burgundy adds a little touch of warmth to 99% of your interior decoration and furnishing options and, although it can seem a little aggressive in theory, the intensity of the colour will certainly bring out the character of your home!
