The Curtain Material: I also used a Vray material, mixed in the diffuse channel with low values in the highlight and reflection glossiness, about 0.5 or 0.3 :

Lighting: For the lighting I used 3 Vray lights. The "1" marked Light is the main light, with 7.0 in the multiplier with a blue tint. The "2" marked Light and the last one have 1.0 multiplier with a white tint:


For the Flame I have used an Omni light with a 1.0 multiplier and a yellow tint with Vray shadows turned on:
