Rich Leather and Inky Blue Is a Match Made in Design Heaven

Who: Jen Samson, interior designer

Where: Laguna Beach, California

Why we love this pic: Black-and-white statement tile lays a compelling foundation as a smattering of organic accents add depth to the design. Meanwhile, rich navy, awash in natural light thanks to windows sans treatments, functions as the perfect complement to the buttery leather bench, creating a satisfying design that's as sophisticated as it is layered.

The takeaway: Navy and leather are an ever-sophisticated combination.
