5 Traditional Hamptons Style Decorating Ideas

Posted: 5 November 2019

The luxurious Hamptons style has soared in popularity in recent years for those who are wanting to achieve the perfect balance of sophistication and relaxation in their coastal home.

Mel from Humble Home in Coffs Harbour on the NSW North Coast has a huge range of chic blue and white pieces, including cushions and rugs from Weave, so we reached out to the Hamptons Style expert to hear her top tips for nailing this look.

What colour palette do you recommend to customers wanting to achieve the Hamptons look?

Hamptons style lends itself to whites, greys and blues, however, you can bend the formal rules and add pops of greens, pinks or beiges to add individuality to your space.

Adding a little colour is easy with cushions and accessories, as you can easily change them up as the trends change without having a huge outlay.

What types of patterns are common in Hamptons style homes?

Mixing patterns and textures is important. Stripes and florals mixed with plains and textures is always a winner in complementing tones.

Hamptons can be bold navy patterns, or a soft greys and pale blues - whichever suits your style.

Styling includes Weave Home Versailles Cushion in Pigment

Window seats are all the rage in Hamptons homes! Which Weave cushion combo would you recommend for this space and why?

My favourites in the Weave range are the Austins, with their luxurious linen blend fabric, which is robust, yet soft and super versatile.

For a window seat, I would mix the Austins in Ivory and Ocean with Mollymook and Rockport in Pigment tones. This will give a bold look with the strong blue but exudes a sophistication of Hamptons style.

Hamptons homes are filled with beach inspired knick-knacks! What are your faves?

Blue and white ceramics are a quintessential part of the Hamptons style.

A collection of showstopping blue and white ceramics and polished silver pieces like clocks, champagne bucket, candlesticks add to the glamour of Hampton’s.

Our silver clocks add a luxurious feel to any room from the living room to the bedroom. They also make fabulous gifts. Match them in with blue and white ceramics collections to add that Hampton’s touch.

Don’t forget the hydrangeas and magnolia’s to soften your collection.

A true Hamptons homeowner knows how to host a party! Any tips for styling spacious and practical entertaining/living spaces?

The perfect entertaining space starts with an incredibly long table so you can style it up with stylish table runners, placemats and garlands down the centre.

Layering up tables with lots of textures through placemats, napkins, multiple ceramics is always a decadent way to dress the table.

Champagne buckets and candlesticks always add a luxurious element, and the more the merrier!
