A question for my ripply friends...

Hi all,
I am just about to start a ripple lap quilt for my niece. She is 12 going on 20 (okay, they all are at that age!) and loves really trendy color combinations. Right now, she adores chocolate brown with a pale blue. She can't stand any traditional girly colors.

My question is this: I have a dark, espresso brown, a heathered chocolate brown and the blue she likes. Will this work up as something that she will like for years, or should I add some other sophisticated colors (no pink or lavender) so that she can enjoy it as she grows up, but also include her faves. I have enough partial balls around here to jazz it up with the primary colors being her faves.

What would you do?
Thanks in advance,
