The Hamptons style continues to be the hottest trend in Perth homebuilding, and it’s an obsession set to stay for the long-term. The incredibly popular style originated in upmarket Long Island, where wealthy New Yorker’s escaped to the beach each Summer. It’s not just a home, it’s an enchanting way of life that lends itself perfectly to coastal living in Perth.
A classic Hamptons elevation is all about applying a classic elegance to a luxurious beach house. Making an authentic statement with a gabled roof, distinctive columns or elegant stone cladding feature wall combined with the clean lines of neutral timber weatherboard for complementary contrast, and topping it off with a balcony to maximise the enjoyment of the home. Customise your home design by choosing your favourite elements for a truly individual take on this traditional trend.
2. Palette Base
For timeless style inspired by beachside living, a refined colour palette is best suited with soft greys or layered shades of blue accented with crisp whites. Wide plank timber floorboards are the top choice flooring in this style of home. Not only is it durable and versatile, it infuses a warmth that only natural materials can. You can opt for a dark stain, steeped in tradition or go for a lighter more distressed look with grey undertones to achieve a more coastal feel. Complete the overarching base of your home with crisp white skirting boards, plantation-style shutters and staircase banisters for a polished finish.
A Hamptons kitchen is quite the showcase of classic fixtures and fittings. Think white shaker cabinets with simple brass or chrome handles. Lavish marble or white stone benchtops will bring an elegant wow factor, especially when coupled with a classic splashback like white subway tiles laid in a herringbone or chevron pattern. And no kitchen is complete without lantern style pendant lights. Glass paired with brass or chrome is a much-loved feature and adds a stunning level of sophistication.
4. Natural Light
Natural light in any home is essential, and it’s so much more than just the functionality of illumination. The right lighting simply enhances the mood in your home – and the Hamptons is all about ambiance. French or stacker doors, in addition to oversized windows to your entertainment zone welcomes natural light in to deliver the desired spacious, breezy atmosphere.
To achieve a casual luxury to your Hamptons home, be guided by layers of subtle touches. Start with furniture and go from there. There’s nothing more appealing than relaxing in an overstuffed sofa with soft natural hues or nautically striped, plump armchairs. Natural fibre rugs with subtle patterns in blues or soft greys add an organic layer of texture. Include some small, beachy elements such as driftwood or a simply beautiful shell to pay true homage to the style.
