Pillowing a Bed

I hope I'm not the only one who finds styling the bedroom daunting.  They say the bedroom is the last room in the house to get attention and that's definitely been true for us.  It makes sense and it doesn't (you've heard it before....how a good portion of your life is spent sleeping etc...).  Well, after years of talking about it, Red and I finally made the plunge to buy a bigger (and shall I say better?!!) bed.  We have been sleeping on the bed I had since I was thirteen.....so we were definitely due.  
Since we still haven't decided on a headboard/frame, I have been looking through magazines and trying to figure out how in the world I want to pillow our new bed.  There are so many ways to do this, and it might sound silly to you, but I think it's important.  I honestly think it can change the vibe of a room: cozy, stuffy, or relaxed (running out of adjectives, but you get the idea).  SO, I wanted to share with you some of the ways to style your bed (that I like- purposely leaving out images I dislike).  After ripping out images of old magazines, I came to the realization that I am not a fan of my bed being over-pillowed or overly structured.  I prefer a more organic approach to pillowing a bed.  The fact that I'm over-thinking this is most definitely not organic, but oh well.  So here are some images I'm drawn to.  A couple of these pictures are a little more structured  but without being stuffy, so I don't mind them so much.  What are your thoughts?  I apologize for my wordiness.....guess I had things to say :).
