Rustic Charm - Hamptons Style



  
Heading to the Hamptons for the weekend?





Re-create This Look


choc Details






Balancing Act  

To achieve a Hamptons look mix contemporary pieces of furniture with rustic elements like reclaimed floorboards, a stone fireplace, recycled timbers, the odd antique and vintage pieces for authenticity and old world charm. Nothing should be too shiny or new. Using all rustic elements would make the space seem dated and old fashioned. If all contemporary touches were used, the house wouldn't feel relaxed and beachy. Combining these two styles is what makes everything come together. Don't forget to add some maritime accessories and natural elements like shells, coral and driftwood to finish off your Hamptons look.
