Nothing adds coastal chic like an over-sized hanging egg chair and bench seat. The soft grey exterior and white railings contrasting with the splash of vibrant green complete the Hamptons haven. Linen upholstery, wicker and rattan are also wonderful furniture choices.
Flooring and walls
Light timber tones and panelled walls exude beach vibes. Washed out accessories and colours will help deliver a sun-bleached look while a neutral coloured rug in natural materials will make all the difference.
Give old pieces of furniture a clean up and repaint or reupholster to turn them into something new and sophisticated. Modern pieces teamed with old create a trendy space that won't date. The trick is getting the right mix of shabby chic and modern elegance.
Choose your furnishings
Take the look right through the house. Chandeliers, table lamps and sconce lighting are wonderful statement pieces. For the bathroom, consider subway tiles or marble, traditional style tapware, and stick with neutral colours.
