Guest Bedroom: Makeover In The Making

Recently, we started a makeover project in our guest bedroom. When we moved in we removed the carpet to expose the hardwood in every room but this one. I can't remember the logic in that decision now, however, we want to unify the flooring throughout the house so that was step 1 of our makeover - remove carpet and finish hardwood floor. I'll share the results of Step 1 when it is completed.
I have been pinning to get ideas for the makeover.  I thought I would share some of my inspiring Pinterest pins to show you the design plan I'm favoring.
This is the color palette I've chosen for the room. I've always tried to keep the bedrooms a nice balance of feminine and masculine.  I think that gray and yellow is a perfect His & Her color combination.


Here is an example of the colors working together in another bedroom makeover.

I am thinking of adding a gloss-on-matte paint technique to the focal wall behind the headboard...possibly pulling a design from the bedding I choose.  Here are some examples of the wall treatment I am referring to.

Here are some of the bedding options that we like. The hubby and I have always gravitated to contemporary, graphic designs, especially in our bedding. I am going to use the gray/black/white colors in the bedding and yellow in the accents in the room.

Well that covers the basics for now...I will keep you posted until the BIG reveal!

What do you think of the color palette ? 
Do you like the gray/yellow combo?  I think it's restful and gender friendly, do you agree?
Which one of the bedding options do you prefer?
