Chasing Davies: Guest Bedroom Decor Update

Guest Bedroom Decor Update

The decorating and designing of my Navy & Orange Guest Room is moving along, just a bit slowly.  But I am at the next phase and wanted to show you where I'm at and what next I'm considering.  Who doesn't like first time home owner's attempt at decorating?

Here's where the room is at.  I'm still loving the navy walls and orange accents.  We've gotten bright white curtains up (from Target) recently, and my Eva rug (from Ballard Design) has founds it's way into my room (and heart).

Next I was looking for a very simple writing desk.  Something like the West Elm Parson's desk, but something pretty cheap, since this will not be a heavily used desk.  I found this one on Amazon, with favorable reviews, currently listed for $70 (but when I purchased it just a few days ago, it was $50!).

This desk will go under the window next to the bed.  It will act as a night stand, a place to escape with my lap top, somewhere to write and think, or anything else that comes up.

So now that the desk is on its way to me,  I need a chair for the room, and I want a cushy and fun chair to pop in the space.  Here I've decided to add a 3rd color to the room's pallet (and the white lightens it all up).

Introducing a light turquoise/teal color into the mix.

I'd like to add this color in accessories and the chair for the desk.  However, I'm having a hard time finding a solid upholstered chair in the right color.  I do love this patterned chair - but patterned chair on a patterned rug?  Too much?

I know I could always try to find a chair at a good cost and either attempt to upholster myself or get it done with the right fabric, but that seems too difficult.

How do you think the room is coming so far?? Any suggestions? And of course, let me know if you see a chair out there that might work for my room!
