Lounge - picking colours that work together rather than fight.

I have a blank canvas which is always hard. DH and I both like this rug (cranberry) but I'm at a loss as to what colours would go with it. Am I best just going for a cream on the walls and curtains and have some vibrant pictures?

The lounge is north facing so can be gloomy so we need a colour that will not look really washed out but will not clash.

Alternatively I love teal accessories but I think it will make the room look really chilly.

I have studied the colour wheel thingy but it seems really tricky to find curtains and rugs that complement each other. The colours I pick seem to always be having a battle with each other.

Have you ever seen this website, Design-Seeds ? It has lots of lovely colour palettes to look at - that might help you pick colours that work well?
