Guest Room Makeover

Austin and I have only ever lived in a one bedroom apartment up until now. I think we are still trying to figure out how to deal with all of this extra space (not complaining) But, the empty guest bedroom is borderline keeping me up at night (slight exaggeration)...with that said, my next project is to completely outfit our guest bedroom/home office. Currently, we have a large white desk and few desk accessories...my goal is to make our guest room a complete guest retreat! 

After much thought I have decided to keep the guest room very neutral to give a more upscale hotel feel. *The catch* Austin and I have both agreed we will not move again until we are ready to fork over some serious cash for a down payment on our first home. With THAT said, I am hoping to keep costs low with flea markets finds and bedding sales; but at the same time something classic and decent quality so that we have it for years to come. Raleigh people, any secret great shops I should check out?  Here is my inspiration:

I'm also in the market for some great (large) bedroom prints for our bedroom and the guest...any favorite Etsy shops out there?
