With so many different interior styles and trends out there, we wanted to make it easy to get an understanding of some of the more widely known design aesthetics. One such design style known as ‘Hamptons Style’ has gone from strength to strength. While it’s been around for quite some time, the style has evolved into the influential trend that we’re seeing today.
Where did the name ‘Hamptons Style’ come from?
The style is inspired by the design and architecture of luxurious Hamptons holiday homes along the eastern beaches of upstate New York. It’s an American twist on French interior design styles. It can be recognised by the way it captures a relaxing atmosphere with a distinctly luxe feel. Think coastal, calm holiday vibes, mixed with elegance and luxury.
What does this style look like?
The traditional Hamptons Style features a strict colour palette of whites, blues and neutral tones. Remember to also incorporate natural textures, stripes and two-toned florals. In terms of furniture, the style leans more towards classics or antiques, as well as woven wicker furniture.
Timbers and marble work well in this style, and the blues can range anywhere from soft powder blue right through to deeper navy.
Has Hamptons Style changed for 2023?
The evolution of this style is now seeing inclusions of warmer metals such as gold and bronze, as well as teals and creams mixed in with the whites and blues. There is still a distinctly coastal feel to this style, and a love for oversized and relaxed furniture. Now it is even softer and more layered with elements that lean to more of a masculine style of décor. It’s definitely popular for those looking to settle on a ‘style’ for their home.
