I had those same gray/blue/red slate tiles in my kitchen (though I can't tell if yours continue into the kitchen). I didn't have quite a much wall showing, but I painted a fairly soft cranberry-ish red. I think that might go well with the gray you already have.

My first thought was also something jewel-y, like crystal. If you want fabric in a knot, how about a frog closure?

I love ginko trees as well. In my part of the world, the Bradford Pear right outside my window is blooming with lovely white flowers. They are known for being fast growing and hearty. When pruned well, the branches make a nice oval shape. Here in the southeast, the leaves turn scarlet in January or so.

When I painted my 15' walls I got a trimming pad that swivels. Attached to a 6' extension pole, it gave me a pretty good reach to cut in at the ceiling. It meant less up and down on the ladder.

When I couldn't find any ready-made slipcovers for my slipper chairs, I stumbled upon BeforeNAfterslipcovers.com. I ordered a pair from them because the price looked very good compared to what I would spend on fabric and labor if I got them made by a local tailor (the upholstery fabric store had a ready recommendation). I was impressed by the number of measurements you have to enter into the site when you order. I ordered them on Jan 23, and since it takes 4-6 weeks, I haven't received them as yet. It might be worth a look for you, though.

I made a rookie mistake in my recent move. I got a quote for a moving company, but failed to ask how many workers would be on the job when they quoted they hourly rate. I was moving from a small place to a small place a block away, but with only two guys on the job, it took a bit longer (and was more expensive) than I expected.
