So, I asked for help with the room.. Listened very appreciatively to the responses and then realized this morning I'll likely be moving in the next month or two. And also realized with the obscenely huge piles of fabric I have I should probably use some of that, at least for the time being, even if it's not exactly what I want..

ended up going with all white bedding since I had so very much white fabric I could make pillow cases, duvet covers, and everything.
better pic of bedding not blacked out by light from window, bed is still cat approved.
not much difference, took down other curtain over door, hung white one. it's kind of visually calmer at least. not as bright and uhm fun. but the bedroom's fairly chaotic as is. covered the floor cushions we'd been using before, those are stacked by the door.
so, that's it. Not sure where I'll be living in the next month or two so I think I give up on doing much for now. Just kind of at a loss, eh?
