How to design a bedroom?

To be honest, the bedroom is the room I think about least — as you can see from the photo of my current bedroom. I'm actually embarrassed by the lack of attention I've given to the bedrooms. My only excuse is that I don't spend that much down time in the bedroom. I've never had a television in the bedroom, I like to read on the couch and most of the relaxing in is done in the garden,  the kitchen or living room.  But I want to be proud of my bedroom.

I recently posted a pic to our Instagram account asking for help on design ideas.  Adding shelving, plants and art work seemed to be the overwhelming response. I love a mix of minimalist meats Venice Beach cottage. Is that a thing?

 I started to search on Pinterest for bedroom ideas. Here are a few I came across that could work for the space. What do you think? I'll be posting back here soon as I add items to the bedroom
