Need help decorating my small bedroom

Hi, well iv been having trouble decorating my bedroom. I started out with the idea of having a light and airy mixture of gold yellow and grey, totally loved it until my job was selling a beautiful deep purple couch that was perfectly new and CHEAP so how could I say no.
So now is I'd like to have a sleek and rustic glam look.
So my questions
1) Can you help me find a nice paint color that will match the look that I'm going for currently I'm thinking a charcoal grey, black and white or a deep teal
2) Am I headed in the right direction to create the look that I'm going for and if you could recommend some other items that will help me achieve the look
3) and I'm in dire need of help with placement of the furniture and art that I have

I have tons of pictures to help you to help me :)
Currently my walls are badly painted in Behr Gentle Rain witch turns blue when my light is turned on and I hate it.
Please don't mind all the patched holes I can't make up my mind and they will be painted over.

I would love to see your bed flip directions and go on the wall to the left of where it is now. It would be easier to use a full wall for a headboard area with all those pillows then. Can that fab couch fit under the window? Do you have a dresser or desk that can fit on that wall shown that is between the doors? Lots of paint on that wall?

The bed and couch are too big and my closet door blocked the way for the placement you suggested. I did move the bed and the couch along the full wall and like that placement however now I feel the room is really heavy in that one side or It could be fine and I could just be weird , what do you thing

Tre, glad you moved the bed away from window. That was not working. Looks much better.

The purple sofa appears to be more of large chair? Will that fit in corner, where window is? If not, then place at end of bed.

The use purple to decide on wall colour & bed linens - rusts, oranges, softer purples, Charcoal grey on the walls would work well with those colours.

Try those placements and see how they work

Before you say NO WAY! Think how pretty a black accent wall would be behind the bed. Leave the bed on the windowless wall. You can hang all your art on the bed wall like a gallery. I'd put the chair centered with the window. So, black, cream, gold. For your floating shelves, put all of the skulls and similar color items on the shelves. (Collections look best grouped for more impact). The large lamp is sucking up a lot of visual space but may work if you use the artwork like a headboard.

It LOOKS like the chair will fit under the window.....or my depth perception is way off here. The chair just seems to make the most sense under the window. What about the bed on the wall across from the window then?

I love the idea of cream purple black and white, but I'd really like to keep the yellow items that I have and make some use of them but if it doesn't work it doesn't work lol.
And I love the thought of a black accent wall but what color would I paint the other walls? White? Soft grey?
And yea the couch blocks getting in to my closet a little too much so I moved the bed next to my door and my oversized chair next to my widow an put my frames back up above it like the suggested headboard idea. What do y'all think?

Good spot for the bed and it must already start to feel better with some things back up on the walls. The chair does look good on that wall and I love it against that color.

Here's a picture of my bedding (it's reversible) so do y'all think it would still work with the black purple gold and cream ?

Thankyou Abby I absolutely love the chair and I want it to desperately work in my room . And your right I already feel better with the pictures on my wall. However I will have to worry about the sunburst mirror, floating shelfs, gold lamp, deer and antelope taxidermy heads and black frame with the gold design on it

That bedding is beautiful! I love the first pic of it the most. That shelf above is just so perfect, too! AND look at the touches right there that tie in your fab chair. I love the grouping you have with the sunburst as those colors all go so well, too. And you have the deer with all the right stuff. The desk goes so well with your shelves and nothing like shelves to use for THINGS and pics. You have an eye for design!

I looked again and see you have used some things twice in the pics above. I REALLY like the shelf arrangement you set up. The brassy/gold items you really grouped....will that lamp be in your room, too?

Alright so here's what iv come up with. :)
I'm still deciding on where to put my gold lame (that will be painted silver) and what colors to paint my wall, as of now I'm thinking of a black accent wall and leaving the half grey half white walls.

I don't know if this picture uploaded.

I totally am loving the half painted walls but I really want to add more black into my room. And I think the accent wall would be a bold way to do it.
I'm open to suggestions on what to do to add more black to my room instead of an accent wall.

And you would leave THESE decorations on the wall painted black?
Ya know what? GO FOR IT! You have your heart set on it and if it is awful, you paint again. Those items will POP on black!!!
