Forced to redecorate the bedroom. Halp!

So. This renovation
. Now the bedroom is involved. Help me brainstorm new flooring, wall color, and keep me sane.
Metafilter has helped me choose cute summer shoes, now I'm trusting you guys to help me make a bedroom we'll love for the next 3-5 years.
We're probably using Behr color 510E-2 (rhythmic blue) for the bathroom walls and master closet walls, the vanity is being built, the tiles are chosen - 2" white octagons with grey squares. White subway tile in the shower.
We had to fire the general contractor/mold remediator when he explained three different bogus reasons he would not get a permit. His crew did a terrible job with the demolition, potentially contaminating the entire house.
For extra fun, it turns out we also have a leak in the bedroom sliding glass door - or somewhere - that has let a bunch of water into the bedroom over what looks like years. Half the perimeter of the carpet has molded. The original mold contractor did not notice this, but might have with air testing.
Aside from the air quality tests which I had started this morning, what else do I need to know?
I need to choose 183 sq ft of something for the floor - prefer wood or cork or...something? Window treatment for a sliding glass door (and hell, if the door is bad enough, maybe a door), paint for the walls, and a light fixture/ceiling fan, as well as bedroom, bathroom and water closet doors.
I'm no longer feeling overwhelmed by lighting or water fixtures. I've come to terms with the fact that I have to hunt down my own counter slab. I no longer care that my designer didn't come up with a single solution for what to do with wet towels.
Please don't tell me to look at apartmenttherapy, please do link to specific products or colors, and please tell me your "everything turned out ok" home renovation nightmare stories. Even if it happened in the kitchen.
Pretty please, make me laugh so that I don't cry.
