The Hamptons in New York is not just a destination – it’s a summer lifestyle of beach-y nautical vibes and luxury. It’s history as being a summer holiday destination of lavishness has put the Hamptons on the map internationally bringing a particular style to homes all over the world. With Australian beach culture, there’s no surprise it has caught on here. The best way to describe this style is ‘nautical luxury’ and it’s easy to achieve with these tips.
The Hamptons style is light and airy so white is the way to go, especially when it comes to the walls.
The nautical vibe wouldn’t be complete without shades of white, blue, and grey.
With those coastal colours, add in some patterned cushions or throws for some character.
Whether in the bathroom or the living room, plantation shutters not only give off that nautical look, they allow you to control the light and temperature in the room.
To create warmth, timber floorboards are found in most home in the Hamptons and range from white oak to stained black.
Also known as wainscoting in the US, timber mouldings down hallways and staircases are popular and aesthetically pleasing.
These are holiday homes after-all so oversized furniture brings that added comfort with elegance. In most homes, you can find gorgeous large armchairs as shown in the image below.
