Ideas for Painting an Attic Apartment?

Q: I just signed a lease for a studio apartment (though not a typical studio as the bathroom and kitchen are separated from the main room by a short hallway). It is the on the top floor of an old house and has vaulted ceilings that start at 4'7". My big problem right now is paint color and where and what to paint. One wall? Several? if so which ones? Should I paint the short portion of the wall before it turns into the vaulted ceiling? Should I paint the faux fireplace? What colors?…

… I'm going to put up an IKEA EXPEDIT shelf to separate the sleeping area from the living area. The living area will have a small, grey SOLSTA sofa bed and a cream colored shag rug — other furniture pending. Any suggestions for paint color and where to paint would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
