How To Successfully Swap Bedroom and Living Room Functions?

Q: I moved into this junior one bedroom in June, and am trying to make the most of it. Because the main room doesn't get much light (it has one window that faces a wall), I swapped my living room with my bedroom as I much prefer to lounge in a sun-filled room.

The living room is coming together, but I am struggling with the bedroom. I don't love walking in and having everyone see my bed, but I can live with it. Any suggestions on how I can make the front room seem less dorm-ish and make the most of the small space and light? The bed is an Ikea from my old daybed (that pulls out to a near-king sized) from my last apartment (a studio); open to getting something new. I've tried a pop of grey but nothing seems to be working.
