The Hamptons style derives its name from “Hamptons”, the stunning resort located north of New York where the rich and famous reside. In a nutshell, Hampton style is best described by terms like relaxed, beachy, classy and upmarket.
Typically a Hamptons house uses minimal colours. Don’t expect a bold purple rug or bright orange cushions for example. Instead natural tones and sandy creams work well with textured rugs and oversized cushions.
The walls are usually white and the space is wide allowing one space to flow seamlessly into the other. Liberating ocean blue colours may also be found in a space which is flooded with natural light caressing the timber floorboards. French doors open up to the verandahs which look out at a vista full of greenery. Accessories reminding you of the beach and ocean adorn the space adding to the warm, welcoming interior.
Lights and fans are fittings that not only serve functional purposes but can also add glamour and style. You may want elegant low-hanging metallic or linen pendant lights over island benches or tables for that intimate look. Additionally, wrought iron designs always work well with Hamptons style interior.
Choose indoor or outdoor lights with clean lines to add to the fresh, bright interior. You can use colours like white or black and materials like opaque glass for the wall lights. Height adjustable metal floor lamps or table lamps with extendable parts also add a metallic flair.
