So funny, I was also going to suggest the vintage tiles. From Pottery Barn, right? Either the roman shades or the ribbon tie curtains that you roll up that tie on each side, they are also from Pottery Barn. I had them in my living room and they really softened the room.

I would put this over the bed to tie in color of the floor and bedding.

Or this because chances your furniture will out last your bedding.

I wouldn't do anything bulky on the window because of all the furniture. I would stick to something more stream line, like wood blinds in white.

Both of those pieces are from pottery barn, here is something similar JC Penney

wall decor

I would do light white sheer curtains (maybe the crinkled kind) at the window to soften things up.

Also put a lamp on either of the bed stands, but especially the one in the corner

I like some of the suggestions of artwork over the bed also. You want something more horizontal than square though to follow the lines of the headboard

Agree with needing lamps.

I would do a long mirror over the other night stand, because there isn't a window there it will feel off balance when you put up window treatments

Love the furniture but is there a full wall where it can be moved? I agree with Heather about the the imbalanced comment.

If it was my Master Bedroom, I would;

avoid any heavy materials (thick picture molding, metal art and wood blinds) and add some soft items.

add a canvas print over the bed. search for a piece that incorporates the colors of the bedding.

in re: to window treatments i would use light color bamboo blinds or woven shades combined with soft solid panels.

as others mentioned, bedside lamps are needed. i would again avoid something heavy (wood or metal) and use glass lamps with ivory or tan shades.

I know you did not ask or mention but IMO an area rug (i would select a solid ivory or tan color) would additionally help to soften the look of the room.

Re: **Master Bedroom Decorating Advice

I have the same set up in my bedroom. It drives me insane that there is that one window in the corner.

I have the metal tiles that someone posted above.

I don't have any pictures with them hung, but these are from right before I hung them.
