Good Questions

Q: I just moved into a new apartment and I'm in the process of decorating and looking for paint colors. My roommate, however, has brought with her a burgundy couch for the living room. What colors go with burgundy besides neutrals? I was hoping to have a cheery and colorful living room, but I'm having a hard time finding a color to fit with the couch apart from beige. Any ideas?
