It is a difficult choice you are faced with when choosing floor coverings. There's great news for you, you aren't as limited as you used to be. Today you can choose to use just about anything for your flooring.
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
If you are stuck for ideas on which rug to choose then really an Oriental one could be a safe option. You may not realize it but an Oriental rug can actually add a little something to the room and it is not overly intrusive either. They go well with light colored walls, though they could also work equally as well with red and other warm colored walls.
