Awkward 80s bedroom

I'm giving this 1980s-era 11x14' bedroom a makeover. It's a non-restful bright yellow and south facing to boot. I'm aiming for a palette of purple and grey, possibly accents of green.
A couple of the hurdles I'm facing as a non-designer: All the trim is this narrow walnut-toned wood stuff which I'm not going to paint (husband likes it ...). What would go better with the trim--a grey tone or a lavender/purple tone? Or something in between the two?
There are *four* matching doors all crammed into two sides of this small room. I might be able to paint them but not sure yet. What can I do to make them blend into the walls better? Is there anything that could be removed later?Thanks in advance for your help. :)
