Why we love this pic: There's something so satisfying about the way black accents define a design, especially when paired with an aesthetic like this one. The blonde wood and soft textiles give the look a subdued and soothing feel, while the inky black lines punctuate it with a hint of sleek and contemporary flair.

The takeaway: Add black accents to bring definition to a soft design.
