I Need Some Color Therapy!

I got to spend a little time in our soon-to-be home yesterday, and took a gazillion photos that I’ve dubbed “The Befores”.  I’d like to think in a few months time this house will look and feel like our home.  While it has been very nicely updated and is in great shape, we will make lots of cosmetic changes and down the road, some major renovations.  For now I’m trying to decide how to incorporate our belongings, and our taste, into the things that we can’t change yet.  For example…..

…this mint green carpeting, which is in perfect condition, graces all the bedrooms. 
It’s not in our budget to rip them out right now.
While I actually like this color
(we have a great sofa in a similar hue for our living room),
I’m not a big fan of being tied to any specific color for all the bedrooms. 
What’s a girl to do?  Ignore the color on the floor? 
Hannah certainly can’t do lime green next to mint green.
I’ve got my thinking cap on and would love your suggestions on color schemes,
or whether to pretend the carpet isn’t there when decorating.
Bloggy decorating divas, please advise!
