Hamptons style interiors are perfect for Australian coastal homes - in this guide we show you the elements of creating a stunning Hamptons style interior.
What is 'Hamptons' style?
The Hamptons style is all about creating a relaxed and comfortable space that still feels chic and put-together. It takes its cues from the relaxed, coastal vibe of the Hamptons region in New York, and it's perfect for creating a summery oasis in your own home.
Pictured above is our Ava sofa, expertly styled by the talented Oak & Orange renovation team. This setting incorporates the key elements of achieving a Hamptons style interior (even though this particular renovation wasn't on the coast, it still does an amazing job of evoking coastal style).
When choosing paint colors, furniture, and decor for your home, opt for light and neutral tones. This will help to create the illusion of more space and make your home feel bright and airy.
Incorporate Natural Materials
Another key element of the Hamptons style is incorporating natural materials. This can be anything from using rattan or wicker furniture to adding wood accents or using dried organic plant material. Natural materials help to create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere that is quintessentially Hamptons.
Focus on Indoor-Outdoor Living
One of the best things about the Hamptons lifestyle is the focus on indoor-outdoor living. If you have the space, consider adding French doors or large windows to bring the outdoors in. Alternatively, you could create an outdoor living area that can be used year-round by adding a fireplace or heat lamps. This is the perfect spot for entertaining guests or relaxing with family.
What type of sofa suits a Hamptons Style interior?
Slipcover sofas like our Ava sofa below are perfect for creating a relaxed but sophisticated interior. Removable slipcovers allow you to easily maintain the look of your furniture with regular cleaning - and you can also swap out the slipcovers to create a completely different look for the season.
If you're looking for a Hamptons-style slipcover sofa, our full range of slipcover sofas offers different styles from our various collections. All of these sofas are fully customisable and can be specified in any size, colour, and configuration.
Each of our pieces is handcrafted in Sydney by our expert team and can be viewed at our showrooms in Sydney and Melbourne.
Below is our Grace sofa, which offers a cleaner, simpler silhouette when compared to the Ava collection - but still exudes Hamptons-style and relaxed sophistication.
What type of material suits a Hamptons Style sofa?
When it comes to materials, the Hamptons style is characterised by natural linens, light colours and flowing fabrics.
Our material library features a stunning array of European linens in almost any shade and handle that you can think of - from Washed Belgian Linens that feature a casual, stonewashed look to stunning Italian linens that are more structured and better suited to non-slipcover sofas, we have materials that span the globe and will help create the perfect Hamptons aesthetic for your home.
We also offer materials that can cope with the rigours of daily life with kids and pets, without losing the Hamptons aesthetic - including cotton-blend materials that are machine-washable and have the appearance of linen.
