My master bedroom challenge!

I have been begging Vinnie to let me start re-decorating...correction: DECORATING: our master bedroom. Currently, we have a bunch of mismatched furniture, our bedding is 3 years old, and I am just over it. I want an adult bedroom. So here is my challenge. Below is my bedroom currently.

I am not quite sure where I found this inspiration picture, but if you know or it is yours, please let me know so I can credit you and question you to death!
Keeping with my champagne taste and beer budget I am trying to recreate the look of this room for less.

I know this rooms seems rather blank, but I love the simplicity of it. It is very neutral- a relaxing place to unwind. My life is so hectic and crazy that I need one place to embrace neutral and simple. Also, I am drawn to the window treatments-mainly because my bedroom windows are very similar and impossible to find anything that looks 1/2 way decent.

I found the furniture from I haven't been into the store to actually take a look at the quality, but for $1099, I love the price. It includes the bed (head and foot boards), the tall dresser, the long dresser and mirror and 1 night stand.
I love the blue color on the walls, but I am leaning more towards the inspiration picture of the tans, but if I go that route, I found a perfect match from Behr -$15 a gallon after $5 rebate-Regatta Blue.

I also found this bedding that I fell in love with from Macy's Hotel Collection. It is insanely priced, so I am looking for a "beer" replacement. I may splurge since I am aiming for a luxury retreat, but we'll see!

So my task for you- give me your honest opinions. I want some feedback!
