Take a look at this bedroom and tell me that you don't love it -

First you have to start with the grey rosette quilt. The one that is shown is by West Elm, of course. It is the ruffled circle quilt & shams. There is something about the texture of the ruffled rosettes that really draws me to this particular quilt, as I have not always been a fan of quilts. It looks soft and comfortable while still being totally chic. Are there substitutes out there, sure, but I would splurge on the real thing - it's worth it.
Next you will want to add a modern, white headboard. The one that is shown is the Moroccan Headboard by West Elm - but almost any open weave headboard could give the same effect. I would go with something that is a solid wood, and not a metal headboard, as the wood cutouts offer a sturdy look, while still a glimpse of the wall behind.
Next you will want to pick a light grey color to put on the wall. Something preferably a few shades lighter than the quilt itself. It will be a nice "in-between" color to mesh the white and the grey. Add a bright white trim to keep the contrast. You could do a very light grey ceiling or keep it white.

I like adding other white, grey and silver accessories like different pillows, throws, vases, even figurines to the nightstands. Mercury glass would also look great here.

Could you ever do a room almost completely in grey and white? Personally, I know that I could.
