The natural focal point in a bedroom is the bed itself. Start with a bed frame you love and make it a statement piece!
If you prefer a more minimalist, relaxed look consider a classic style headboard like this one with caning. Then layer other pieces around it.

consider the color palette
When creating a collected look, keep in mind the color scheme. Color can make a collected room look cohesive. An area rug is a great place to start for color inspiration.
