I think that the wall that the beds are backing on to would be the nicest one painted. I notice you said black and white but an accent color is always nice to give the room a bit of character. Don't know what your favorite color is but teal, cranberry, lime green or orange are some nice accent colors you could consider. If you decided to paint one wall a color you could put frames of different sizes with black and white photos in them on the wall. Just a few ideas, I'm definitely no expert!! Have fun decorating!!

I think the room needs a big dose of color. I would paint the bed wall black. Then a light gray on the rest of the walls. Then I would add a small low 3 drawer chest about 36"s wide in between the beds and a large low dresser across from the black wall using the dark wood as the closet drawers. I would then find a comforter set that you like with a black back ground for the twin beds. Add a couple of large lamps 1 for the piece between the beds and one for the dresser. Hang 2 large coordinating canvas abstract art above each bed instead of head boards. The room is crying out for softness add floor to ceiling drapes and a small chair. I would keep repeating grays of all tones then pick one accent color if you like to add pops of color for accent pillows and accessories. But I've done the same only using silver metallic s as my pop of color. I would add a 3'x5 rug between the beds in a shag in black gray and white. Finish the space with a large tree live or silk next to the window in the corner. I like a large mirror in the room possibly over the large dresser.

You didn't state but can you paint the walls or are you stuck with the color. In place of paint add some artwork/photographic prints on those baron walls. Get a nice colorful large area rug to warm up the cold floors. New bed linens and a nice comforter to go on the beds.

the red shows a black/white theme very well,and the taupe is a great backdrop for anything,so might be the most practical choice!!!Itzel,which do you think you want?????????????/

Inspired by your beautiful Audrey Hepburn poster: are you thinking a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme? Because I am :-) Opulence on a budget.
You could paint or wallpaper the wall behind the beds black, the other walls a light beige/greige. Add mirrored bedside tables (Target has them pretty cheap if you are on a budget).

A large mirror, standing on the floor, leaning against the wall in your dressing area. Glass chandelier. Chair (or a chaise settee) in the corner near the window in the dressing area, with a standing lamp behind it. Luxurious feeling carpet in front of the closets.

Floor to ceiling curtains (maybe with glass beads tie-backs) with sheers for the large window and Roman shades for the smaller windows.
Pref. white woodwork: window frames and door.

You could add a soft pink colour or a golden yellow in cushions, bedding, throws. Or keep it black, white and a beige or greige.
Hmmm.... I'm almost regretting doing my own bedroom in blacks and browns now....

I'm currently obsessed with B&W to the point where I need to knock it off. Lol! Here's my latest black and white with a hint of gold, but you could do a hint of whatever color you wanted. The dresser was a fun and easy project. I'll post a few pics of that room and another one I did with a black wall (pic quality is not so good - haven't snapped pro pics yet!). Hope this helps!

Inspired by Tiffany's & Co Jewellery boxes I would paint the walls Tiffany Blue (see below) pair it with a high gloss white platform bed, red satin sheets (Sears), and a blue duvet (Pottery Barn).
Knowing you are on a tight budget, the Emily set includes a queen platform bed, 2 night stands, dresser & mirror. Two light blue or clear lamps also available through Pottery Barn would look smashing on the glossy night stands.
