How to create the Hamptons feel in your home

So what is Hamptons Style?

According to Inside Out, the five things to know about Hamptons style is:

  1. Colour – Hamptons style is all about minimalist colours so there is no going for an orange rug or a purple throw. White walls and floorboards are popular, as is wall cladding (which adds texture, too). For upholstery and rugs, sandy creams and natural tones (like those found in sisal rugs and linen) work well. Accent colours that work well include navy and duck egg blue.
  2. Space – Wide open spaces are crucial to Hamptons style. You want high ceilings and oversize rooms, as well as spaces that flow from indoors to outdoors seamlessly.
  3. Comfort  – While Hamptons homes look elegant, clear and light, they also feel cosy and inviting. Use large lounges and occasional chairs to make the space welcoming and add texture with throws, rugs and oversize cushions
  4. Natural  – Bring the outdoors, in with lots of greenery, and by ensuring there’s plenty of natural light. This will add to the beachy feel of your Hamptons home. Using natural materials like wicker, cane or rattan for furniture is great, too, but don’t go overboard – you don’t want to veer into shabby chic territory
  5. Personality – Yes, Hamptons homes are fairly minimalist but that doesn’t mean you can’t add personality. Stand-out chandeliers, statement mirrors, and gallery walls are all great ways to let your own style shine through.
