THE love of the Hamptons look is still going strong and when done properly will remain a timeless classic.
Originating from the upper class elite and their holiday region in Long Island, New York it’s a decorating style that can look high end without costing the earth.
Lavender Hill Interiors provide their top tips to achieving a Hamptons-inspired home:
1. Naturally Neutral
To capture casual and coastal Hampton’s style, consider using neutral tones and variations of white, beige and grey- these core colours will help you create wide open spaces.
Nautical elements are commonly featured, and help to reflect Long Island’s seaside. Create the perfect beach retreat by introducing decor in shades of duck blue.
2. Pattern and Texture
Fabric linen, jute, soft cotton and sisal will help add some rustic charm and depth to a room. Lavender Hill’s Stone Lamp features a distressed white base and linen fabric shade, while a blue fringe cushion adds fabulous fray to this beachside escape.
A Hampton’s styled home typically features warm timbers, parquetry flooring and classic, soft interior furnishings. Introduce grandeur and select an oversized statement piece, such as a generously-sized sofa or club chairs.
4. Wood and Wicker
Incorporate pieces made from natural wood and wicker. For example, Oak Hamptons Coffee Table and Oak Cross Leg Side Table feature solid craftsmanship and is just heavenly for a Hampton’s enthusiast. Olli Ella’s Palm Leaf basket provides a natural element to the space, and is great to place magazines, throws and cushions,
Light coloured timber floors provide a natural element to the room, dress it up with a rug. Think natural texture, colour and fabrics. Jute rugs are hard-wearing and available in a suite of creams, corals, navy, white and stripes.
6. Lighting and Accessories
To create a casual and coastal Hamptons vibe — encourage natural lighting and reduce window coverings by installing sheer curtains. Decorate with sea glass, shells or coral as a decorative accent within the home.
