Modern Farmhouse : Orange & Teal Guestroom Design

Happy Monday my friends!  
I hope you had a great weekend.  Ours was full of Michigan State football and beating the Wolverines.  :-)

My #modernfarmhousemi clients and I are slowly working our way through the whole house.  Today I'm sharing our plans for the guest bedroom.

It all started with this fabric.  My friend Julie is using it in her home, and when I saw yards and yards of it, I thought it would be perfect for my clients, because they love color.  Please ignore the reflection of the window on the fabric! 

 I want to bring out the orange, teal, and pink from the pattern.  This would be the euro shams on the bed, and then I'd add coral-orange velvet piping as the trim.

I've been waiting for the perfect place to use Leland gal fabric,  I love the pattern on this pillow and it has my orange and teal colors to perfection!  

Plus a little boho--because they've got boho style, and it adds a fun texture to the room.

Julie from Simple Redesign (You're going to be hearing her name often because we work closely together and she's awesome.) posted this desk on Facebook and I was first to pounce on it.  I love the shape of the legs!  It was a dresser but the drawers were in poor condition, so Julie removed them and is selling it as a desk.  I would like to see it lacquered in white, but add the color on the underside: either coral or teal.
A clear stool would get pushed under the desk to allow the color to show through.  Plus, I like the the juxtaposition of a farmhouse and the modern look of the ghost stool.

Can you even handle this pair of nightstands I found?  They are so unique and the drawers slide like butter.  Sadly there is no furniture company stamp on them. Trust me, I looked.  So I have no idea who made them, but I can't wait to see them in the room.  I'm so thankful my clients loved them as much as I did.  Julie will lacquer them glossy white and paint the inside of the drawers coral--sneaky color.  Design is in the details!

What do you think?  I like to take more risks, especially with color in a guest room, because people are only staying in the space for a short time so why not make a statement?!

  1. This is so fantastic, Abby! I love the board so much, can't imagine how pretty the finished room will look!

  2. I've loved that fabric forever, and paired with those fuschia shades - oh my!!

  3. Um. GORGEOUSNESS...!!! The Leland fabric is so perfect with everything else. I love that you see the design first, then the details of the oars and boats. Knocking it out of the park. That's what Abby does.

  4. The fabric is gorgeous. You already know I am not a fan of the orange family, BUT and it is a big BUT I think this is going to look amazing!!! The fan fabric is so pretty and what a great jumping off point. Love the little sneak peeks of color especially doing the inside of the desk a color, brilliant!!! Happy Monday, looks like you are off to a great start!

  5. YES!! Wrap it up. I'll take it!
    I like the idea of painting the inside of drawers. A nice surprise when you open them. In the past when I paint something, I just want to get it done. So the inside of the drawers never get touched. I need to step it up.

  6. First, the fabric is STUNNING! Secondly, I'm jealous of the desk, I still haven't found one for my ORC. Finally, the nightstands made my heart skip a beat, GORGEOUS!

  7. Love everything on this board! Love, love, LOVE!

  8. Definitely think this before/after should be submitted to design sponge, cannot wait to see it completed! Thank you Abby! xx

  9. Love this board. And what great finds you've uncovered!
