The Hamptons At Home

A trip to NYC in the summer is never complete without a stop at The Hamptons. When I’m on a stateside buying trip, I cannot resist the urge to escape the city; the allure is just too great.

Think classic elegance, refined luxury and comfortable coastal style. A destination for interiors inspiration if there ever was one, the style of The Hamptons is one of my favourites. Recreating this look was truly as easy as one, two, three…

Use light and natural colours as the base; keeping your walls white or neutral. Pair with beautiful timber or bamboo flooring. Exposed ceiling rafters always work wonderfully and for your key pieces of furniture opt for natural linens and oak finishes. My aptly named North Hampton Sofa offers classic elegance with a traditional silhouette and textured linen upholstery. Pair this with the Montauk Square Coffee Table, featuring a distressed light timber base and a brilliant white stone top.

Introduce layers of texture to the otherwise bare foundation by adding luxurious cushions, plush knitted throws, natural rugs, and soft floating curtains. I highly recommend my Willow Ropeweave rugs in either Ivory or Beige – it’s thick design enhances the refined coastal aesthetic that we all love about The Hamptons.

For colour, add subtle accents of sea greens or nautical blues such as seagrass wallpaper for texture or beautiful sea inspired artworks to create interest. Using artworks, you can balance contemporary detail with classic charm to create a perfectly curated space!
