Redecorating help!

I’m redecorating my bedroom. The first image below is my board of my plans/actuals. I painted my bed copper, my bedspread is graphic black and white triangles (handmade though), pillows are black and white, ochre/mustard, and blush pink. I painted my desk pinky peach and white, I’m making lamps/lampshades in blush pink and gold/ochre. And there are some tchotchkes I am making, drapes I loved then lost, and my artwork and a plan for the wall behind the two pieces.

The next picture is my color scheme and my inspiration pics. My walls are currently greige and badly painted. At some point, I want to paint it all bright white as it isn’t the brightest space. Floors are medium stained wood.

The last one is some wallpaper I like. I have a large white armoire - super large. It came with the apartment because there are no closets at all in the entire apartment. I am thinking of covering it with removable wallpaper to make it prettier. I am also thinking of covering the wall behind it in the same wallpaper so it blends in. I’ve never chosen wallpaper before - and I feel like my design is a bit hodgepodge. It’s a bit boho, a bit graphical, a bit handmade modern, and a bit mid century modern. I want something to sort of bring things together. In one of the inspiration photos, there is wallpaper that is gold leaf outlines on white - that is also on my page of wallpapers. I like that a lot - but I think I want a little more color. I also really am not like a nature/plants person. Though I do really like the pink and gold bird wallpaper (I love animals, so a fancy animal wallpaper would be fun). I’ve never painted a room or chosen wallpaper - so am unsure how to decide!

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas for any part of this - I’d love to hear it! I’m hoping to get it mostly finished this weekend (not the painting or the wallpaper) - though I’ll be making pillows for years to come. A friend was asking why I didn’t just buy them - they are expensive, also I need things to keep me busy and looking forward to things - so, make pillows and lamps!
