Good Questions: Colors to Coordinate with Curtains?

Courtney sent in a good question: Hi AT! I just splurged on Pier 1 curtains for my student rental. They're currently in my bedroom, but will likely migrate to the living room in my next ("real", post-graduation) place. I love how dramatic and vibrant they are, but I'm having problems figuring out what colors would be best for coordinating textiles - I'm in the market for a coverlet or throw and some accent pillows. I'm worried that pulling a color directly from the drapes would be too overbearing, but I'm at a loss for what else to use. Any thoughts?

I've included a picture from one set in the room, with an inset from the Pier 1 website because my picture came out a little dark. Thanks!
