Ideas for Pillows to Coordinate with Red Patterned Rug?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I recently bought this bold rug for the living room in our new aparment, and we're in love with it. I would love new pillows to go with it, as opposed to the ones here that are from our former apartment as placeholders, but am not sure what to do. I have been thinking about light blue and white (in thick stripes or just solid?) or light gray and white. I don't want to detract from the rug, and feel like the current pillows "fight" too much. Thanks for any opinions!
