Burgundy: A Color of Sophistication

The color Burgundy is a dark, purplish-red color that is a very warm color. Because the color has such a rich hue to it, it is a very popular color with home interior decorators. It isn’t hard to picture a cozy sitting room with burgundy painted walls, adorned with mahogany furniture and an inviting fireplace in the corner. Not only does this room seem to be very cozy and inviting, but it also has a touch of sophistication to it as well. While the color burgundy is a very warm color, it is also a color of formality and sophistication. This feature also makes it a popular color in the fashion industry.

Many dresses, tuxedos and suits are designed with burgundy accents, and some are even entirely burgundy. Burgundy is also a popular color used in weddings. While the bride wears white, a burgundy flower girl dress always makes the child look elegant and grown up. There is just something about the color that has a formal air about it. So, if are redecorating a room in your house, engaged to be married or hosting a formal event and are in need of a warm and sophisticated color, then you should give burgundy a try!
