Hamptons Interior Design

If you’re looking for a way to add some sophistication and elegance to your home, the Hamptons interior style might be just what you’re looking for! This style is all about creating an air of luxury and relaxation, and it can be achieved with a few simple changes.

 

What is Hamptons Interior Style?

The Hamptons style originated in the Hamptons (durrr), an affluent area on Long Island, New York. Hampton interior styling draws inspiration from coastal living and combines elements of nature while remaining neutral at the base. The Hamptons style is perfect for anyone who wants to add a touch of elegance to their home without going too over-the-top.

So, whether you’re looking to update your entire space or just add a touch of glamour, let’s discuss some easy ways to introduce the Hamptons style into your home.

 

 

 

Choose Furniture Wisely

The key is to choose comfortable and stylish pieces when it comes to furniture. Look for items with clean lines and simple shapes, and avoid anything too ornate or fussy. 

Furniture in light timbers such as oak is a safe option for styling a Hamptons interior. To soften the living space, opt for a fabric sofa with removable cushions that scream ‘welcome, you’re home now.’

A few well-chosen furniture pieces can go a long way in creating a Hamptons-inspired space. So, take your time and go room-by-room to bring all of your Hamptons’ home visions to life.

The Colour Palette

One of the most important aspects of the Hamptons style is the colour palette. The Hamptons aesthetic typically features light, airy colours like whites, creams, and different shades of blue.

So, if you’re looking to create a similar look in your home, start by painting your walls in a crisp white shade that will allow you to add layers of depth with other neutral stylings.

You can also add pops of colour with accessories featuring a coastal colour palette.

Natural Lighting

Another essential element of this style is natural lighting. The Hamptons is all about taking advantage of the beautiful outdoors, so try to let in as much natural light as possible. Hang sheer curtains or add mirrors to help reflect and brighten your space.

Where natural lighting isn’t possible without a complete renovation, try adding artificial lighting through floor and table lamps that reflect a coastal or nautical theme and bring in another layer of depth to the space without looking out of place.

Textures & Accessories

Accenting your space with accessories is a great way to add personality and style. Choose pieces that reflect the Hamptons aesthetic, such as seashells, oars, beach glass, or driftwood. These pieces can help create an airy, relaxed, and welcoming atmosphere in any room. You can also use cushions and throws to add colour and texture and hang artwork with coastal themes.

Don’t forget to add some textured accessories to complete the look. Think soft fabrics, rugs with a coastal motif, seashells, and other beachy decor. By incorporating these elements into your space, you’ll be able to create an authentic Hamptons vibe in no time!

With just a few simple changes, you can easily incorporate the Hamptons style into your home. So why not give it a try? You might just fall in love with the results!
