Color Scheme to Complement an Ice Blue Petrie Sofa?

Q: We just bought our first place and I cannot for the life of me pick a color scheme to match our sofa that I'm excited about. Our sofa is the Petrie from Crate & Barrel in a light blue color. I realize the color could go a million different ways — I've had people suggest pairing with white/black, or bright red. Currently we pair it with white lacquered pieces and orange accents and I'm very tired of that look…

…Two separate ideas that have inspired me - an icy palette of crystal, blues, white, mirrors (Ice attached) or a warmer luxe set up using neutrals and luxe materials. Given I have the mid-century modern blue piece to work with and a flokati rug I could use, I'm just not sure what to do with this room. It's a big room and needs at least 2 more pieces of seating so I have to pick a color that works for wall and one for an upholstered piece or two. Any ideas? Thank you!
