Colors for Red Dunn Mare?

As you all know, I am the proud newish (I've owned her for a month) owner of a lovely red dunn mare named Maia.
I am a color-coordination freak..... but I can't figure out which color to concentrate on with Maia!
I love odd and unusual colors, but I'd also like to find a lot of selection with my color. I am most definitely okay with having 2 colors. I don't want to be "plain Jane" with navy blue or black stuff though...
Thanks for your help!
Here's a picture of her:

PINK! I love pink on Red Duns! Makes them look super hot! I could be biased because I love the color pink.

My red dunn wears lime green and he looks AMAZING in it! I'll have to see if I can find a pic so you can see the contrast!

I have a red dun that looks adorable in light blue! Most of our stuff is light blue with brown trim but he looks equally good with a hunter green saddle pad. He also has a darker royal blue with black blanket that we've gotten compliments on. He's a little lighter then Maia but here's a pic.. (I wish i had some pics of him in blue but i can't find any!) I imagine red duns are cute enough to pull off most colors.

what about red? There's a red dun at the stables and he looks soooo pretty in red. It brings out the red in his fur and makes his fur look really pretty

Hmmmm......Navy blue......or light blue........maybe I say that because I love the color blue. My mom has a maroon saddle pad, and it looks GREAT on the bay she rides, so maybe maroon with blue trim....or blue with maroon trim, lol! Or maybe light green and white. You might just want to go rainbow!

I think a forest green, or red would look nice. :)

Ride more, worry less.
