Bedroom inspiration: Mint Green and White

This past fall, at one of the last tagsales of the season, I picked up the most adorable vintage bedspread for $12. It probably dates to the 1940s-50s and is somewhere between a powder blue and a mint green, the most perfect aqua shade. I intend to use this bedspread as the starting point for the new upstairs guest room. Here are the rest of the ingredients I'm hunting for:
(the x's represent pieces I already have)
1. Vintage or vintage style bedside lamp x
2. Jute 5x8 area rug
3. White cotton blanket
4. Crisp white cotton sheets
5. Vintage bookshelf to be painted white x
6. Vintage armoire to be painted mint green
7. At least 3 pieces of original artwork that coordinate color scheme x
8. Vintage armchair newly upholstered in bright vintagey floral fabric (I may have to learn to upholster...)
9. Vintage double sleigh bed painted white x
10. Small bedside table painted light green x
11. Small side table for next to armchair painted white x
12. Hanging light fixture/small chandelier for high ceilinged dormer space/reading nook.
13. Vintage light blue/green bedspread x
14. Small bench for foot of the bed
