How to Create a Perfect Hamptons Home

  • Article by: Sally Wood

Creating a Hamptons-inspired home is the perfect way to make your house a relaxing and calming environment. Just opening the front door will instantly make you feel like you’re back on holidays without a care in the world.

Here are a few tips on how to make your home feel like it’s in the Hamptons:

Cool Tones – When choosing your colour palette, opt for a cool colour palette inspired by the seaside. Think soft whites, and creamy beiges with hints of aquamarine blues and charcoal greys. Using white as your base colour will also create an illusion of space and cleanliness.

Open Spaces – Where you can, you want to feature the exterior of your home as much as the interior. You especially want to showcase any surrounding greenery, the ocean and blue skies, if possible. A great way to do this is by having plantation shutters that let outdoors and indoors blend together seamlessly. By doing this, you’re also letting a lot of light in, which is a tenet of Hamptons style.

Natural – When outfitting and furnishing your Hamptons-style home, natural materials are the way to go. Pale timbers with grey undertones are reminiscent of driftwood and so are ideal. Natural fibres like woven jute rugs and bleached cotton pillows will help to tie everything together. Wicker, rattan and linen are also perfect for any Hamptons home.

Keep It Simple – The best part about Hamptons style is its uncomplicatedness. If in doubt, stick with simple. After all, you want an environment you can relax and be at peace in.
