White and Wood Is a Fresh and Timeless Combination

Who: Emily Henderson, stylist and author

Where: Los Angeles, California

Why we love this pic: The classic combination of white and wood lays the foundation for this California-casual design. Fresh black-and-white patterns elevate that foundation with contemporary flair as an oversized neutral-blue area rug ties the design together with warmth and definition.

The takeaway: Some combinations never go out of style.
