For the New York elite, the Hamptons on Long Island is home to many picturesque beachside homes … and mansions! To compliment the classically elegant architecture, the interiors of these homes are infused with a laid back sense of luxury.
Stylish yet comfortable, their aura of relaxed luxury is achieved through the retrained use of colour, careful selection of understated fabrics, classical furniture and nautically inspired decor.
Colour-wise, everything is quite simple with whites, off whites, pale neutrals teamed with accents of pale green, duck egg blue, light greys and grayish blues. These tranquil colours give a feeling of spaciousness and evoke images of oceans and coastal skies.
Add plush upholstered linen sofas, a couple of wingbacks chairs, the odd antique piece, some comfy cushions, an eclectic mix of ‘beachy’ nautical finds, woven baskets, wicker furniture, some rustic pieces, touches of wood and you will feel like you are on holiday at the Hamptons!
