Home Tour: Alessandra Ambrosio’s Brazil-Inspired California Home

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio decided to put down roots in California with her two children, Anja and Noah. Originally from Brazil, she loved the similarities Santa Monica had with her native country, so she found a 1920’s Spanish bungalow that she transformed with the help of designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The result is a warm home full of charm, character, and fun.

Martyn incorporated the free-spirited nature of Alessandra and her children with elegant design to create something unique to them. You can feel the Brazilian influence in the home along with other elements inspired by Alessandra’s global travels. The home manages to capture a sense of glamour while also feeling completely comfortable and accessible to her children.

Home Tour: Casey Neistat’s Relaxing and Elegant NYC Retreat

Filmmaker Casey Neistat is known for being one of YouTube’s most prominent creators. His adventurous, rough-around-the-edges style and creative way of telling stories has made him stand out from the crowd. Many people know his studio from his videos, which is urban and chaotic, but he wanted his home to be the complete “antithesis” of that space. He and his wife, Candice Pool hired designer Daun Curry to help them create a slice of serenity in the middle of the busy city.

The result is a beautiful, elegant home with a bohemian flair. The couple wanted the space to feel like a retreat from their busy lives so they embraced modern lines and minimalist sensibilities. However, it is balanced by charming architectural elements to give it a sense of warmth and character.

10 Luxurious Bedrooms with Seating Areas

The main focus of your bedroom is relaxation. It’s your private, personal space where you can go to unwind and refresh. The bed is the main focal point of the room but sometimes, you may just want to read a book and have a glass of wine before bed or enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning before you get your day started. That’s where having a seating area comes in handy.

A bedroom seating area can be as little or as large as you need it to be (or have space to accommodate). If your space is limited, a simple armchair or chaise will do the trick. If you have more flex space, you could set up an entirely separate living area in your bedroom. There are a lot of options depending on your needs and the available space.

Here are some inspiring bedrooms with seating areas of all types to give you some ideas.
