Inspired by the seaside towns located in Long Island, New York the Hamptons style is a combination of elements that make up the ocean and beach lifestyle. Think natural & organic materials that create a softness in a space and a colour palette that oozes coastal, relaxing vibes that you would so often find with the lifestyle that comes organically with a seaside location.
Coastal yet crisp and relaxed, yet elegant. That’s Hamptons.
This week on the blog we are giving you the 5 essential elements you will need to consider when styling your Hamptons living space.
Being located on the Gold & Tweed Coast’s we are never short of clients who are trying to adapt this style into their own home… so over the years our designers have become experts in the Hamptons design category. To apply this style to your living space you will need to combine the following 5 essential elements:
Natural Textures & Accessorising
When you’re thinking of the sea, what comes to mind? The soft grain of the bright white sand underneath. The stunning blue colours emanating from the gorgeous ocean waters. Driftwood pieces, shells and coral that have washed up on the shoreline. These are all elements that you can use to style your Hamptons styled living space.

When it comes to your furniture selections, opt for natural linens and cottons that will give the ‘imperfectly perfect’ look and a neutral colour that will blend seamlessly in with the rest of your colour palette. When it comes to entertainment units, coffee and side table pieces go down the oak, white washed or unstained timber routes. These pieces will keep the interior light and bright and create that coastal feel that is essential when decorating with the Hamptons interior style.
The Hamptons style is all about bringing the outdoors in. So the more natural light the better! Big windows, sky lights and glass sliding doors that will allow natural light to beam in and brighten your interior in every corner.
Bring the outside in. That is the number one rule to follow when styling your Hamptons living space. So don’t be afraid to use greenery. Style real or artificial plants in rattan and hand weaved baskets to add another textural and natural element to the space.
This is simple: Keep it neutral with a few subtle blue colour injections. Remember you are trying to mimic the look and feel of the ocean.
