No matter what time of year it is, perfecting a coastal style in your home décor will have you feeling warm and toasty. We love beachside couture because of the calming and relaxed vibe it brings to any living space.
One of the most famous coastal styles in home décor is the Hamptons style.
Let’s have a look at what defines Hamptons beach style and give you some great tips for perfecting this style at home (even if you don’t have a Hamptons style budget!)
Hamptons style comes from the Hampton Islands area in upstate New York, where the sophisticated spend their summers. It is a chic and effortlessly cool décor vibe that is light and bright and somehow exudes expense and beachside chill at the same time.
The Hamptons look is “sophisticated, relaxed, timeless, airy and light”, according to Indah Island interior designer, Natalee Bowen, who specialises in a gorgeous fusion of Hamptons and lush Australian coastal.
This style of décor is open and airy with the simplicity of colour, pattern and design. It draws inspiration from some romantic European styles including French Provincial and Baroque mainly in the furniture design.
This style is always cool and relatively easy to exude in Aussie homes, fitting in perfectly with our warm climate and laidback entertaining vibe.
