How should I decorate my bedroom?

My wife and I just bought our first house and we're trying to decide on a style for our bedroom. My wife wants some classic traditional Victorian type furniture, but I want something modern, like what you'd see at IKEA except not quite so cheap. Those kind of styles don't really merge too well, but we can't think of any way to combine them. I've been reading a lot of stuff trying to get some ideas ( http://hkcfurniture.com/ ) but nothing helps. I really don't want an old Victorian looking room, and she said she doesn't want our room to look like an IKEA catalog. How should we resolve this? Thanks!

it's only a bedroom,apart from sleep and rude stuff what else do you do in there,my suggestion would be,give her a choice of decorating 2 rooms,whichever one she chooses let her do her way,and yours do your way,or you could do it her way with a few of your added touches,just for originality,sometimes old and new go well together..although saying that,it'd never let my bloke choose the decor congratulations on your first house x
