Color questions

I've been working on a Christmas tree skirt, but as usual, I'm already thinking about the next quilt. (I'm beginning to think I enjoy the planning and acquiring the materials to make the quilt more than making the quilt.)

I fell in love with this quilt shown below. I'm trying to figure out what makes it work so well. Then, I noticed that there is no red. Then I started to count the colors. There are basically 7 colors, and 4 to 6 of each color. There are both cool and warm colors. In fact, there is almost every color other than solid red and solid green.

Does it work because I just like bright colors, or happenstance, or a mixture of lights and darks or a plan of some sort?
