The basis of the Hamptons style refers to homes built by the rich and famous on the coast of long island, New York. The Hampton's style is defined by an effortlessly cool, classic and sophisticated style that exudes homely, casual beach vibes.

The Lorne 34 display home by Beachwood Homes exudes that distinctive Hamptons style Australians have come to love. Here are some ideas to help you achieve the Hamptons look for your home. 

Achieve the Hamptons look for your home in 7 steps:

Timber and Gables

Hamptons Facade - Lorne Display Home

A traditional weatherboard look to your exterior is the first place to start to create that Hamptons look. Timber cladding on all or part of the exterior will go a long way to achieving a Hamptons first impression and carefully considered details such as timber gabling, posts and window moulding with plantation shutters will nail that classic coastal look.

Whites and Patterns

The light, bright and airy feel of a Hamptons home is easily achieved with crisp white walls. Why not add personality through colour and texture via feature painted and patterned walls to achieve that cosy, coastal vibe.

Rustic and Soft

Hamptons Look - rustic and soft furnishings

When it comes to furnishing your hamptons style home, think stylishly casual, relaxed and beachy. Bring some coastal colours and interesting patterns and textures through accessories like plump cushions and textured throw rugs. A big soft couch and rattan furniture add that laid-back Hamptons cosey rustic feel that looks so interesting yet inviting.

Make a Glowing Statement

Hamptons Light Fixtures

Lighting and fixtures in a Hamptons home make a big statement in themselves. Not only do they add a soft warm glow, but It’s hard to go past a lantern-style pendant or seagrass chandelier for making a bold impact!

Tell a Story through accessories

Hamptons style accessories

Let the detail tell a story. Add an interesting vignette that draws the eye with “layers” of different shapes and textures. The idea is to create an organised grouping of decorative elements and small accessories on coffee tables, side tables and benchtops that bring an interesting charm & homely feel and tell a story.

Trimming and Shaking

Hamptons Shaker cabinets and trims

Commonly painted white, there’s no doubt that a key to the Hamptons look is moulded skirting boards,  architraves and window frames. The detail in these architectural trims brings a stylishly formal – yet simple layered elegance to a Hamptons interior. Paired with classic shaker-style profiles for your kitchen, laundry and bathroom cabinetry and you have a winning combination that embraces all things Hamptons!

Skirting, Architraves & Doors: Corinthian
Kitchen Cabinetry: Laminex (Provincial Profile)

Keep it Natural

Hamptons style - natural materials

Natural looking materials are a key element in creating the Hamptons look. For both exterior and interior, on walls, floors, furniture, and accessories, and focus on texture, timber, stone and all things “organic” come together to create that sense of comfort and warmth. For the exterior, a feature wall in brick or stone cladding adds a subtle contrast to timber for a modern twist. Inside the home, natural look floorboards and tiles, and the pop of an interesting, tiled splashback captures the beauty of nature to create that rustic, beachy feel.
