When setting up a master bedroom, I'm a big fan of the bed being the center of attention. I think when at all possible, it should be on the wall opposite the door way so it's the first thing you see as you walk in, it also often makes the room look bigger.

I'm a complete sucker for white linens, I think they are crisp, clean and go with everything. Here's a really similar duvet to the one we have.
Playing off the white dresser and bedding, I also wanted white curtains to pop off the wall color. White curtains let in a very pretty diffused light. If you need darkness to sleep you'd need black out shades behind them, but I love the softness they bring to a room. I sewed a strip of the deep red fabric to the bottom of the white curtains to coordinate with the side tables and the red pillows on the bed.
The cedar chest was refinished in Basil Green, and it's a way to bring in green without it feeling like Christmas. The side tables (actually vintage desks) are painted in Behr's Sly Fox. And the wall color is Behr Pebble Stone. I use white semigloss straight from the can for my trim.
On the opposite wall is my white dresser. This is the very first piece I ever painted. Back when we had a non-existent decorating budget, and a lot of mis-matched furniture. I painted this piece white and my husband said it "looked like Pottery Barn", and the rest is history :)
I flanked this piece with a pair of matching lamps, similar to these.
Our bathroom is an en-suite, so I wanted the wall colors to coordinate without matching. I chose to add stripes to the half wall, so the darker color is the same as the master bedroom, while the overall color in the bathroom is a lighter off white.
We've had this green leaf print shower curtain for a while, but here's a similar one. To match that I framed free online leaf prints (check out this source for free botanical prints) in simple frames for just a little decor that also ties in with the green in the bedroom.
(If you haven't noticed yet, our whole house accent color is green!)
