    Grey/silver is a lovely neutral companion color, so is blue. All three together are amazing. OR you could add in creamy whites and golds. Some people really enjoy a "forest" vibe and add shades of green and browns to burgundy.
    Please show us photos with what you decide to do.! Good luck!

    Choose a color out of your bedding to coordinate with the shade color on the windows.I would opt for a shade that you will not tire of.

    Everyone uses grays and navy blues with it, but do the unexpected. Very pale yellow is beautiful with most shades of burgundy, as is pale sage green. Unexpected combinations that look nice.

    I love mint green, we have burgundy curtains with our mint green walls and it always makes us smile :)

    Did you have these shades installed or did you purchase the home and they came with, because if you like them then let's figure this out but if you are stuck with them due to financial expense? If you like them then what color is currently on the walls? Do you like cool colors or warm colors. Do you like to express yourself or are you a pleaser that thinks inside the confining box ? If you know yourself then the color options that have been presented here are great because they vary from cold and warm. Also remember to consider how much light the room gets? The darker the color the darker the room. Also will you be able to purchase new bedding, and possibly new furniture? For instance let's suppose you have a cherry finished bedroom set, a darker color is going to look less pleasing because of furniture finish if you have oak finished furniture that almost requires warm tones because a grey or silvery color would just be a disaster. You'll be really unhappy and this is where you should feel comfortable and happy. Maybe your gut is telling you but you're scared to go for it, it's only paint no biggy. Go to paint Store and find your burgundy shade then hold up to these colors as well as what you really want, which makes you smile? That's your color! Remember that you can always get drapes to blend into wall color. Or sometimes it's the furniture placement that your tired of and you can try different looks. I got help from some of these ladies and am very happy now it feels like home and cozy. My adult children that live with us think it's weird but I think theirs is as well so each of us is an individual with likes and dislikes. As long as I'm happy that's all that matters to me I used to be confined in a box trying to stay with bland colors that I really didn't love I just tolerated them because it's expected, but my bedroom was off limits so it was light chocolate and it felt cozy and in a sense nature is a beautiful palette dirt is brown so anything goes with it ,it actually was a neutral color that totally allowed me to change things out as I wanted from drapes to bedding. I was happy . So I ask you to really think about why you want to paint it and then go from there. Personally I like the unexpected, I find color and art to express myself, now at slightly over 50! I was in a box for that long it feels great now. It's empowering, makes you confident. And hey we pay the mortgage not my company so if I'm there 24/7 and they are never in my bedroom of all places then have fun. My living room was just painted organic green by Sherwin William with white on accents. Love it! I've only been here a yr so I need to feel my space in order to move to paint color the entire house was vanilla builder grade selling neutral and now that the furniture has finally been placed in my master I can begin to think about paint but I actually like the color at least now. Next is my soffit in my kitchen which will be reddish orange can't remember the name. It's to bring life into that room that looks out into yard that is mostly green lawn. I already told my hubby that hehas full control of family room but if he doesn't do it soon I will because I feel it should be yellow. A mellow shade not lemon although I wouldn't mind that. But it took a yr to feel the space to place the furniture as well. I pay a painter so I get feed back in fact he put my living and dining room on Facebook page M.E.N.D and he has already painted one room for a client and has 2 others waiting for him to paint their space as well in that green. OK well good luck and trust you self trust your choice. God's blessings.

    I would use pinks, rose, ecru, light green.

    I've always liked burgundy with gold trim/ accents.

    Light sage green ( its in the grey shades. ). Maybe a comforter cover in. Burgundy/greys. (GO TO BIG BOX STORES. )gather up paint chips bigger the better. Put on your walls. Leave 4 a week. Take down as u walk by. What u don't like. Your eyes will choose.

    It would be super fun to make an accent wall! I did a sunburst accent wall in my master bedroom! It was super easy! You can use whatever color paint you want! See how here: http://zestitup.com/sunburst-accent-wall/
    I love the way it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!

      THATs just beautiful! I have nice tall 1st floor ceilings/walls, too and I think I'm going to steal your very creative talents - but use a different color scheme in light yellows & creams.

    i would think a nice mustardy yellow (not bright) would be a nice contrast. another color to consider is a mossy, muted green. Since the colors are opposites, they should go together well. Once you choose your color, you can break it up with multicolor window scarves over your blinds. Have fun!

    Burgundy always makes me think of Hollywood Glamour. Medium gray walls, end tables with mirrored accents, a "poufy" bedspread in silvery satin, airy gold curtains pulled to the side of the windows, a large sunburst mirror, white dressing table, with a burgundy bench, white fluffy fur area rug, burgundy, and shiny metal accessories. Just a thought.

    Pinks or roses -- there was a color of the year in 2015 that would work well but I can't remember the color name. I think greens or gold would look garish. Silver colors look best with burgundy. Check out pinterest for color combinations.

    All the paint companies have dozens of rooms, many changeable to give you ideas for color combinations. I myself have a Pinterest board with dozens of color combinations shown as paint chips. Good Luck!
