How To Decorate Walls in Small, High-Ceilinged Bedroom?

Good Questions

Q: I am wondering if anyone has any tips on how best to decorate the walls in this room. The room is part of a flat in a friend's lovely Victorian house that's I'm moving into.

The ceilings are high and the windows are fairly big. I am finding it a bit of a challenge because the bed has to be pushed into a corner, and the wall next to the window to the right of the bed is fairly dark. I would like to hang a large print somewhere in the room, also but need opinions as to where best to place it without the room appearing overcrowded, as it's not the largest of rooms. Currently there is a mirror opposite the window, but would it be better to have it in the dark corner to the right of the bed over the chest of drawers?

The photo taken is the view from the door as you walk into the room. There is a smaller chest of drawers to the left over which there is a mirror. Unfortunately I can't paint this room!

Any ideas would be appreciated! Thank you.
