I know I’m not MrKate but maybe I can help.
I googled Dark Wood Furniture Bedroom in google and this is one of the images I found. It shows that a soft light colour as this very light purpleish shade really works. White also works and even very soft blues and greens. Maybe if you google it, you’ll find some inspiration!
And for the floorplan, maybe you can attach a little drawing of your floorplan. If it is a big space I would suggest putting an ottoman or a little soft bench there, So you can sit on it and use it when trying on shoes. But Maybe you don’t need any more furniture, as not everything has to be pushed against the wall!
I hope I was of some help.
