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.

Actress Ashley Benson recently redecorated her New York City apartment to be the perfect escape from the busy city. The result is a chic reflection of her that offers her a space to relax, entertain, and practice playing the guitar. Coral walls engulf the main living area in a stylish, cheerful glow while modern furniture and gold accents bring an understated, glamorous flair to the space.
The entire apartment is the perfect space for a young woman to call home. It’s easy to imagine having stylish dinner parties as well as relaxing there after a long, stressful day. It strikes the perfect balance. And although it is feminine, it isn’t overly so. The streamlined, modern furniture keeps it simple while other elements inject a fun, flirty vibe.

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.
