So what is Hamptons style? Well the Hamptons is located a couple of hours from New York City and is the playground for it’s rich and famous. You’ve probably seen it before in TV shows like Revenge and movies such as Something’s Gotta Give.
This interior style is classic yet fresh. There’s an emphasis on light and bright walls in shades of white. Floors are almost always timber – both light and dark tones. And the homes are furnished generously, to create a layered look. Historically speaking, Hamptons style often used blue and white as the general colour palette. But as the look has been embraced by more people this rule has relaxed somewhat to include other colours like beige, rust, black and grey – but always with white front and centre.
