If you like shades of blue, I would go with the blue color in the rug. If you don't like blues, the rust color in the rug would be a nice option, too.

Brown walls in either the darker or lighter shade in the rug with ivory colored trim. Add smokey blue pillows and ivory ceramic lamp bases and ceramics to compliment the darker walls. This will give you a warm dramatic look. If you prefer a softer color palette then you could paint the walls the blue in the rug and accent with ivory and brown patterned pillows . But be sure the room can handle a cool color like blue without making the space feel cold. Blue walls will require a lot of natural light.

Tres McKinney is absolutely correct with the blue it's a tough color to work with. My preference would be the medium shade of brown in your rug with blue accessories.

I would look at the BM Jamesboro Gold, and then get some blue throw pillows ;)
