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.

Here is the inspiring tour of their home courtesy of Architectural Digest.

Home Tour: Lily Aldridge’s Colorful & Eclectic Nashville Home

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.

Here is an inspiring tour of the home courtesy of Architectural Digest.

Home Tour: Mandy Moore’s Mid-Century Modern Pasadena Retreat

Actress Mandy Moore recently renovated a 1950’s home in Pasadena to reflect her personal style while embracing the home’s original architecture by Harold B. Zook. Moore appreciated the architect’s original vision, falling in love with the property as soon as she saw it. She kept most of the home’s original features, like the brick floors, and balanced it with a fresh, modern take that complements the vintage aspects of the home.

The property looks out onto incredible views of the San Gabriel mountains and valley, so floor-to-ceiling windows give you access to them in almost every room, as well as a beautiful outdoor patio. There is plenty of natural light throughout the home to give it a happy, refreshing feel. Though the home is very chic in design, Moore made sure to choose furniture and elements that were child and pet-friendly.
