Master Bedroom: With or Without?

I need opinions please. I already know which I like best, but my husband doesn't agree..shocker (:
Here's what we've got; two pelmet boxes, one with a red accent and one without. I added the red because it ties in the color scheme of the room, but you know how you can over think things? I think I've done this with the red..I feel like it might be too much..that's where y'all come into play. Let me know which one you would pick?
Without...
(How do you get pillows to look perfect in a picture, please share, because mine are looking so rough!)

or with the red accent...

looks beautiful, love that fabric!! ... my vote/first instinct would be no red ... so the room doesn't look contrived but collected ... I would even be open to see another color trim to add another unexpected element to the room ...

I wish I could see a frontal shot of the pelmet box with the red trim (to see it w/the bed and pillows). But, I think they both look great and I agree w/you - the red trim adds a bit of the unexpected and surprise that I really like!! And, I think it looks a bit more custom too! Keep the red trim!

I love the pelmet box... the fabric choice is great!! I think it's perfect without the red.

I really like the look of the trim but agree that I wouldn'd do the red- I like scsd's idea of another colour for the trim. Beautiful pelmet either way!!

I LOVE the red! It is like a little wink of unexpected...

Did you make these?! TUTORIAL PLEASE!

It's hard to tell with the red because the picture is from the side. I think with out it seems more sleek. I feel with the red on it your eye will pull towards it, instead of the rest of the room.
hint for the pillows, you karate chop them in the middle and make them look like fortune cookies . This again is best with cushions on sofas.

I love the pelmet box, I'd say go without the red. I think the red fights the other fabric.

Skip the red so it doesn't limit you, you may want to change up some time.

Tough call, but I'm leaning towards without the red trim. The pattern on the pelmet is so great, it really stands on its own.

Cushion tip: For your pillows with shams, stuff a bit of cotton batting into the corners to help them stand up.

NO RED! looks trailer trashy. without it, it looks classy.
