Our local version has been adapted to suit the Australian lifestyle and can be found everywhere, from the beach to rural areas. One of the key elements of the popularity of the design is the luxurious feel that doesn’t necessarily need to cost you an arm and a leg.

What are the design elements of a Hamptons house?
There’s a lot of flexibility in the Hamptons design, however, there are a few trademark elements that go with the style. Hamptons is a fairly universally liked style, so not only does it work for a forever home, it can be great for a furnished rental.
Natural Textures and Material
Hamptons-style homes are traditionally built from timber and lighter materials. For interior decorations, think of relaxed features like floral arrangements, jute rugs and seashells. It provides a great way to add a personal touch through custom design that can be easily adapted later down the track.
The colour palette should be neutral to add warmth to the interior of your home. White is the traditional Hamptons style home choice, however, light colours like pale blue.
Hamptons is all about light and a relaxed atmosphere, so you need to get that natural light in your home. Think high ceilings, open floor plans where the kitchen, living room and dining room are all connected and large windows to let in the outside world.
In a Hamptons home, your furnishing is a chance to add a splash of colour. Some of the trademark furnishings of Hamptons Style Homes include shaker-style cabinetry, french doors and stone benchtops. When in doubt, a minimal, natural look will serve you better than anything too extravagant. In keeping with the paintwork, we recommend furniture that’s comfortable and relaxing over bold and over the top ( see below for a good example). Think comfy couches, wicker chairs, and the type of furniture you’d expect to find at a beach house.
For a Hamptons house, a swimming pool just fits. It adds to the luxury feel and can be a great feature for get-togethers and family. Pools are all fun in theory but remember they require a lot of maintenance. On the plus side, they do add value to your home if you’re planning to resell down the line.
