Boasting casual luxury and sophisticated design, the Hamptons style is inspired by the affluent beach houses on the east coast of Long Island in New York State. Picture white-on-white weatherboard homes decorated with classic white furnishings and refined accents of charcoal, black and ink blue.
Inside, it’s all about spacious, open-plan living. Large windows with plantation shutters keep everything light, bright and breezy, and timber floorboards in warm tones bring the oceanside feel.
Opulence, Carolyn says, is a Hamptons must-have and you’ll find it in the details. “These homes are renowned for their wainscot wall panelling with chair rails that set the tone for a beautiful, polished home,” she says.
“The lighting is decorative, with pendants over kitchen benches, wall sconces and lamps all working together to build up layers of atmosphere.
“Shaker-style kitchen cabinets with overhead glass doors are iconic of the style and in the bathroom you’d expect a luxurious, freestanding bath with chrome tapware.”
