SF Good Questions: Help My Loft!

AT:SF, I am so torn in my decorating. I have a one bedroom apartment with a spiral staircase loft (which is our office/guest bedroom). I've taken over the main level in organic greens, browns and creams. I've managed to tie in accent colors (orange in the bedroom). However, the man I live with just loves red and black, reminiscent of his room at home...

...I let him sort of take over the loft, and so we have one wall that is a darker red... and it looks very unfinished. It has gone nowhere. On one side there is a desk with tons of wires going *everywhere* and on the other side is a very dull, brown mattress futon for guests and lounging. It is a great space, meant to be fun and a getaway from my oversized gray leather furniture and dramatic fireplace...

So far though, it looks like a storage space. I was thinking of doing a blue-green accent color. I wanted to do something funky like wall stickers or some funky artwork. I need a wall-covering yet, some organization for the electronics, and maybe a new lamp. Any ideas?

(The pictures were taken near the window (quite large window!). I have lived here for almost 6 months now and is my first apartment! Not much has changed in here save for the wall where the futon rests against is now a dark red.)
