the main decorating feature in most bedrooms is the bed itself. i suggest you find some bedding that you like (pillow shams, dust ruffle, throw pillows, coordinating window treatments, etc) and paint the walls a pastel color that you can pull from the bedding. maybe you could buy or build an attractive screen to put in front of the unused door in a coordinating fabric. i'm not sure what kind of walls you have that could be "soft", but if you can't hang any pictures on the walls, maybe you could wallpaper one of them and introduce some pattern that way.

then coordinate the bathroom accordingly. paint their walls the same color as the bedroom (or use the same wallpaper) and get towels that pull another color from the bedding.

also, if you buy one of those "bed-in-a-bag" deals, they normally contain a comforter, dust ruffle & pillow shams, and also a complete sheet set. because the sheets are usually really stiff & scratchy, you may rather use them for fabric and make a window treatment from them. you could also use them to add a ruffle or pleated ruffle to the bottoms of inexpensive towels for a coordinated look, or even cover a plain lampshade with the sheet fabric.
