It’s the season of decadence, so stoke up the cosiness in your home décor with the rich shades of burgundy reds. Just like a glass of red, this look is all about creating depth and drama to warm you and your guests’ hearts.


Pull out all the stops and welcome visitors with the rich shades of plum, damson and crimson. As more versatile takes on traditional red, these deeper tones will see you through the seasons and beyond. Check out our budget-friendly colour dupe for Farrow & Ball's rich burgundy, Eating Room Red.

Choose ruby and garnet shades for your paint and tiles, which complement darker woods, sheepskin rugs and cream soft furnishings, for an effortlessly comforting scheme.

For a subtle approach, introduce these plummy shades with your choice of soft furnishings, trinkets and dinnerware.

To prevent your scheme feeling flat, add texture and glossy finishes on ceramics, cushions and smaller items of furniture. Lighten up the look with lighting or set a more restful mood with candlelight and brass accents.
