If you ask anyone what their favourite style of interior design is, most will say 'Hamptons Style'. This style of home takes it's inspiration from a string of stunning homes and communities in the north of New York State on eastern Long Island's South Fork. The Hampton’s is known for it’s long stretch of pristine beaches and an interior of farmland, towns and villages. Homes are scattered throughout the Hamptons with 18th-century shingle buildings, gorgeous estates hidden behind tall boxwood hedges and beachfront homes with panoramic ocean views.

Predominantly, the foundation colour palette of the Hampton’s style home consists of white on white with warm neutral accents throughout. This particular home was completely transformed implementing the Hampton’s theme. Using Dulux’s White On White with subtle uses of beige and warm greys throughout to provide depth and character ever so delicately throughout the interior.
The kitchen was completely gutted and redesigned to include a butler's pantry and a large island bench for entertaining. Various textural elements were used in the kitchen area to create a warmth and sophistication. These textures can be found in the stunning marble herringbone kitchen black-splash, Cesar-Stone bench tops and natural blonde timber flooring.
The original interior of the house was incredibly dark so we had to find a way to bring in some much needed light. We installed Velux roof windows to provide uninterrupted natural daylight, fresh air and sky views, completely opening up and lighting the entire space. Velux windows are a brilliant option for opening up spaces and providing that extra wow factor in your home. They come complete with block out blinds which are operated by a touch-screen controller.
Blonde timbers are used throughout the home from the flooring to various statement furniture pieces. The use of these timbers throughout the home provides warmth and texture while matching the neutral light colour pallete all whilst creating an inviting atmosphere in each room.
Textured wall paneling was installed in key strategic areas of the home to provide a depth and texture to an otherwise stark white wall. VJ paneling was installed in areas such as the bathrooms and master bedroom. Paneling is prevalent in Hampton's Styled homes. It can be used to entirely change the look and feel of a room.
Artwork and over-sized mirrors were selected for use throughout the home to tie in the colours and to provide a point of interest in each room. Mirrors and artwork, when used correctly, can provide that luxury feel to a room.
There's no doubt that achieving a cohesive and flowing home design can be a daunting task. Taking time to carefully plan and research before embarking on your project goes a long way to ensuring your vision will come to fruition.
