I find light blue to make a beautiful companion color to the 
buff-pink-dusty rose-peach-orange tones.  One of my very favorite SDB 
combinations in my beds is TICKLED PEACH and RAIN DANCE.

Stippled, blended, or otherwise patterned irises often look best 
coupled with solid colored companions of complementary colors - yellows 
with browns, blues with greys, creams with khakis.  Brights often 
companion best with brights, and pastels with pastels.

But of course there are always exceptions to every rule, and what looks 
good to my eye may not look good to yours.  ;-)
