What color or style of throw pillows would you pair with this rug (pottery barn)??
Don't mind the messy living room, but that is the furniture where the rug will go!

Hi there! Beautiful rug! And you are starting with a nice, neutral palette, so you can add in an accent color of your choice. The most likely pairings with your gold and taupe beginnings would be either spa/light blues, indigos, and/or reds.

The trick is to make sure that one or two of your pillows has the taupe/gold in its colorway, plus another color. Then build on that by introducing more pillows which contain any or all of the colors.

To give you some ideas, posting below different color schemes that would all look great with your rug and furniture. First, the spa blue (West Elm):
