Right now I feel like the shelves next to the bed are a bit bare; I was thinking of getting a few vintage items like a fan, alarm clock, vases, etc. to decorate with but I can't make up my mind. I just really have issues arranging things in an interesting way.

Also, I feel like the area above the bed needs something bolder. I was thinking of making a colorful headboard, but I'm not sure if that will clash with the shelves. I also think I could maybe do something different in that area rather than using a headboard. I feel like white my not be the best color for the duvet cover. What do you think?

And lastly, there's a long wall across the bed, to the right of the entryway that is empty right now. I'm not quite sure what to do there. We were thinking of putting a full mirror on the corner by the window, but I'd still have to do something with that empty wall.

Thanks SO much! Corina
