Hamptons interior style remains one of the most popular design aesthetics for Australian homes, for good reason. It’s light, bright and airy and is perfect in an Australian setting and climate, particularly for those of us with homes located near the coast. The resort-like aesthetic is easy-going but delivered in a classic and sophisticated way that has begun to develop a distinctly Australian flavour, with modern Hamptons homewares bringing textured timbers, touches of black in furniture, framing and details, and the addition of warmer whites into the mix.

If you’re looking to bring a fresh Hamptons breeze into your home, the first place to start is the walls. Don’t be afraid of white, white and more white to form a backdrop to your coastal style, and maybe a touch of timber in warm grey or natural tones. Add plenty of touch-me fabrics in soft furnishings, rugs and collected pieces from your global travels, and from there, build on your coastal tones to introduce touches of rattan, wicker, linen textiles and silver accents. To get you started, we’ve gathered a collection of the quintessential homewares you’d find in the grand Hamptons holiday houses on the United States east coast, to feather your Hamptons nest right here in Australia.

Another secret weapon in decorating your home is to add different-sized cushions when styling your bed or sofa.

L-shaped sofas are also a great candidate for a rectangular feature cushion and, as this one is available in 12 different colours, you have endless combinations at your fingertips.

Key features:

  • 100% hand-dyed linen
  • Matching linen throws are available
  • Dimensions: 35 x 55cm

What is The Hamptons style?

The Hamptons style is derived from holiday homes and villages along Long Island on the East Coast of New York. On the outside, the style encompasses architectural features such as shingle roofs with white-washed timber, high ceilings with pronounced gables, many windows and symmetrical facades. The interior design style of The Hamptons is infused with a breezy coastal aesthetic that uses natural timbers and fibres such as jute and wool rugs, woven baskets and sun-beached textiles and linens. The decor also tends to blend a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture for a relaxed, lived-in look.

What is Australian Hamptons style?

After falling in love with Hamptons style over a decade ago, Australians have evolved the look of their Hamptons style homes over time to see them become unique to the southern hemisphere and suited to our own climate and way of life. More than a holiday destination, Australians enjoy a lifestyle of indor-outdoor living year round and tend to entertain that way, calling for open-plan spaces in living and dining, comprehensive alfresco zones with areas for cooking, dining and lounging and of course our passion for home swimming pools ties in beautifully with this aesthetic.
