I checked a number of the scenes where her room is shown, starting with "Sam and Dave," through "Maddie's Turn" and finally to "I Am Curious."
Notice the sheets behind her as Sam walks into the room, and then when they're about to lie down.
Next is the last view of them together that night, and when they wake up the next day.
Then there's the morning where Sam wakes up alone, and he subsequently either changes the sheets or at least makes up the bed--because the next time Maddie's there for any length of time, things look different.
And then there's, well, you know. ;D
It does look as if the sheets are different, but that could be due to one or another of them (Maddie and Sam, that is) straightening up the room at some point. Maddie could have done this in between the time of waking up from her infamous 'long nap' after Sam left the morning of "I Am Curious," and the time she has to go to work. She's a neatnik, she'd do something like that. No offense, but I don't really think Dave is the kind of person who'd think about buffing up the room, especially not since he got to the house that night with a lot of other things on his mind. And he'd 'been taking these pain pills.'
If we want to get really super-technical, it could be a sign of the change in status of the man in question in her life--from the sophisticated gentleman Sam, to the working-class David. A director can use almost anything to have symbolic meaning and this may be a subtle visual way of explaining this difference between the characters.
