I planned to paint this bedside table white for a while now. It needs a design so it could fit the room's color palette (white, blue, teal, and tangerine). Here are some designs that i have browsed upon. Help me choose or suggest some patterns. Thanks you rock in advance

Check an arts & craft store. They often have stencils that you could translate into a design - that works with other patterns in the room.

I've been wanting to try this one: http://www.kimmyles.com/blog/categories/diy/indian-inlay-how

There are 5 different stencils that you put together to fit your project. It would look beautiful with multiple colors.

this piece has great bones. what about simply painting the piece all white and then painting just the top in tangerine. then you can put a teal based lamp on it with a white shade - done and beautiful! and you won't get tired of it.

I would recommend going floral on this piece to play up the smooth, traditional lines

Check out Leisure Living Furniture. She refinishes pieces and they look amazing. You can get ideas from what she has done.

A contemporary plaid using all your colors or color blocks, diamonds etc. Tape and paint one of your favorite designs. Another option, duct tape comes in assorted colors. I have seen pictures where it is taped on walls and furniture as an accent.

JWinteriors, are you sure you have the right name there? I went to leisurelivingfurniture.com and it's a furniture store, but I'm not seeing anything that someone has "done".
