Getting the Hamptons Look in an Aussie Home

The Hamptons look, a classic and timeless aesthetic that suits an Aussie home just as superbly as the upscale holiday abodes of wealthy New Yorkers! And with our love for indoor/outdoor living, the Hamptons vibe really does suit the Aussie lifestyle perfectly. It’s an interior style that features high-quality finishes while maintaining a casual and relaxed feel. Perhaps in the Hamptons, it’s a little more ‘boat shoes relaxed’ than ‘thongs relaxed’ – but we’re definitely not worlds apart!

Beachy Chic

When going for the Hamptons look, there are a few essential design motifs that you’ll notice in most homes. Including:

  • Lots of natural light
  • Shades of white – creating a spacious, bright feel
  • Subtle pops of colour – think soft blues and greens
  • Accents of timber, woven cane, ceramic and stone
  • Timber cladding (painted white)
  • Wooden or stone benchtops
  • Shaker style cabinetry
  • Cane baskets, white cutlery and dinnerware on display in open shelves

If you spend any amount of time searching ‘Hamptons home style’ on Pinterest, you’ll notice there is a lot of white…everywhere. If you’re really going for that authentic Hamptons look, don’t be tempted to throw a pop of colour on the walls. That’s right, put those paint swatches down. It’s all about shades of white, cream, ivory and off white – and there are subtle but noticeable differences between each.

Tiles are an essential ingredient of the Hamptons look – and there are so many options for you to choose from! For the bathroom, opt for something like Classic White Matt for the walls and Marfilia Bianco Matt for the floors. And if you feel like an accent tile, opt for something slightly darker in a square, rectangular, round or hexagonal like the Travertine Light Grey Herringbone Mosaic Matt. Alternatively, nothing says classic Hamptons like a Classic White Gloss subway tile or even Popular White Gloss if you’d like a hint of texture.
