I love everything about the Hamptons style ~ from the pavilion style architecture to the warm timbers, detailed windows, parquetry flooring and classic, soft interior furnishings. It's a style of architecture and design that works really well here in Australia. Best of all you don’t need to live by the sea to use this style of decorating. You can keep it classic and timeless or simply by adding nautical and 'beachy' you can give it a coastal feel.
Hamptons fashion style has a relaxed, casual feel leading itself to American sportswear in a palette of navy, white and red with basics such as shorts and chinos in shades of beige and khaki. Think rugby shirts, polos, deck shoes and topsiders. The look is sporty but with classic, polished feel to it.
