No matter where you live nothing quite says Summer more than images of the Hamptons.
Just the phrase “The Hamptons,” tends to conjure visions of beachside clambakes, sidewalk cafes and spending leisurely afternoons lounging and relaxing.
At the same time, The Hamptons doesn’t just bring to mind images of a certain setting and lifestyle—it’s also become a design style all its own. When I think Hamptons design I think light, airy and neutral color palettes with hints of rustic charm and some Americana thrown into the mix as well.
What I love about the quintessential Hamptons design style is that it’s something that’s accessible for everyone. You can easily take elements of things that are considered Hamptons-esque and make them work in your home, whether you live in a coastal area or the middle of the desert.
There’s also a sense of comfort, functionality and timelessness that seems to come with Hamptons-style design, making it something that can work for anybody or any family.
The picture below brings together a fresh, white color palette along with more rustic elements like the light fixtures and the dark plank flooring.
This room is a more modern take on what we typically think of when we think Hamptons. There’s a minimalist and streamlined look to the furnishings, but there’s still a sense of warmth.
The below image is really what’s best about Hamptons style and these coastal homes. It’s difficult to tell where the inside ends and the outside begins, and when you’re surrounded by natural beauty that’s definitely a positive.
Here’s another one where there’s a sense of simplicity and a lot of the design and style of the space is dependent on bringing the outdoors in.
This room says Victorian luxury with just a hint of modern.
Again the below kitchen and dining area have minimalist influences in the design, but there’s still a sense of coziness that’s part of that classic Hamptons style.
