Progress: Bedroom - new bedding & LR pillows

I'm really excited about my new bedding. I found a glacier blue duvet and chocolate brown sheets and I love them and the combination. My room has more color now. yea!

Now I need an accent pillow (and I'm hoping fairly small) to pull the two colors together. What I've found is that typically the fabrics have a lighter sky blue with the brown, so I haven't really found any matches yet. I might have to make one myself. All the 'designer' pillows cost $60+, and that sounds like too much for a little pillow to me.

Other things in this room: I'm contemplating a headboard, but I'm unsure what color to use. Ideally I'd have a chocolate brown bed frame and it would take care of itself. I *really* need to take down the framed photos. I don't know what I was thinking when I put them up, but they're way too high and look a bit weird in that configuration. As for window treatments, I'm still thinking about color for that too. I like the blue and brown in here now, but it's mixing the cool and warm colors and the rest of the room needs to push it in one direction. I was thinking more to the cool side, but I'm still trying out ideas in photoshop, etc.

Before & After:

I'm on an accelerated 'cure' because I have to study for exams too, so I'm trying to get a little more done.

I'm continuing to get rid of stuff.

I also got floor pillows for my living room. I cleaned out the bottom shelf of my coffee table and put the pillows there to pull out for additional seating on the floor. It's also nice and soft to rest feet on while watching tv.
