Low Key Hamptons Style - Get The Look

Coastal Blues

Choose natural finishes and materials for a relaxed feel.

If you are after a relaxed, casual feel to your Hamptons style beach house consider materials such as untreated and recycled wood, rough wool, linen, leather, suede, bamboo, coral and ceramics. Surfaces can be handcrafted, rustic and natural looking. Look for natural building materials, homewares and furniture that are sustainable and authentic with subtle colours and textured finishes.

Sofas should be above all comfortable and relaxing. Rattan and wicker furniture and accessories are popular in seaside schemes because they are flexible, durable and lightweight ~ ideal for couches, chairs, and ottomans.
Natural light is very important in a coastal scheme, and if possible choose window coverings that disappear and allow in the light. Opt for a colour that matches your walls. Roller and roman blinds, plantation shutters and sheer curtains all suit a beach house look.

I would prefer custom blinds than curtains specially when used in office windows. Blinds are sharp looking and that's how I like things to be. And also, cleaning them is easier. No laundry needed.
