Help with Loft Paint Choices?

Good Questions

Q: I'm just about to begin painting my apartment and I am hoping that you can have readers give input on these choices:

Pin it button big

A. birch tree wallpaper (white with gray and black trees) on TV wall and above kitchen cabinets

B. pale light blue on bookshelf wall and the portion of the ceiling square in front of TV (upper right of pic)

C. light blue gray behind couch and the largest ceiling square above the double window

This pic shows the room after coming down a long steel gray hallway. There's a soffit directly overhead.

Since all the non-white walls will be on the east and west (including hallway), I thought the ceiling might help define areas and make the scheme more cohesive and interesting. Now I'm worried that it may make the place seem disjointed and immature.

Should I only paper? Paint/paper only the TV/ bookshelf walls? And what about the wall under the soffit? Leave white or paint to connect with the proposed light gray wall? Something else? Please help!
