Ideas for Decorating My New Bedroom?

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved across country to Alaska and I am starting fresh. I am really stuck on what to do with my bedroom. I moved into an apartment with a roommate, and the rest is already furnished which just leaves me with my bedroom.

I do have a queen mattress on order and I am looking for a platform bed frame. I just don't know what to do with the rest:
I do not have a closet door, any suggestions on how to create a barrier other then the sheet I have hanging (hate it)? The landlord has only allowed me the option of changing the carpet (carpet for carpet basically), no paint or door additions. I'm not a fan of the light oak-colored door and baseboards but can't change it so must work with it. I don't even know if I should go with matching nightstands or an electic feel. The room is 10 ft by 12 ft (the wall with the window is the 10 ft wall), also the window is not centered (which is killing my OCD). I like minimalism but with color that is relaxing and maybe a bit romantic (as I've recently met a new guy :-). So far I think I can fit a queen bed, 2 nightstands, and a desk for my studies. I'm 28 years old. I work a full time career/job and have gone back to university so I would like an adult room, NOT college dorm feel. Also there is no other space in the house for the dog's things, so his stuff must remain in the room as well.
