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 guest bedroom is understated with a grey bed and minimal decor, allowing the emerald green accent chair to pop.
Ashley’s bedroom is also understated with a more glamorous twist, bringing in the gold accents again and a luxurious tufted headboard.
In one corner of Ashley’s bedroom, a blush pink chair and fluffy ottoman with gold touches bring in that Hollywood Regency flair.
In the living room, Ashley loves to practice playing guitar, so one corner is devoted to it with a stylish, pop art-inspired touch.
What a fun, fashionable space!
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.

A seating area has a way of making a bedroom feel that much cozier.
Supermodel Lily Aldridge and rockstar Caleb Followill created their dream home in Nashville to settle down in Followill’s home state of Tennessee. When designing the home, Aldridge told the designers that her vision was a mixture of the English countryside and Moroccan influences. The result is a cozy, unique home that they share with their young daughter.
This home is a great example of creating a space that is uniquely yours. English and Moroccan design may sound very different from each other, but it’s that contrast that made such an inspiring space. Every room in the home has its own personality yet they flow together beautifully. It’s one of those homes that you can imagine feeling comfortable in as soon as you step through the front door.
