Living room designs have never been so effortless as they are in the Hamptons. The breezy, bright, and nautical atmosphere of homes from the Hamptons evokes memories of vacations and beach side days, instilling a calm and airy ambience that makes you feel revitalized. We’re here to give you the design breakdown of Hamptons homes, and let you know how to bring the style to your space.
Breezy Living Room Designs
To sum up the Hamptons home style in one word, it would be breezy. Stepping inside gives you the impression that you could still be outdoors, flooded with natural light and finishes, with the sea breeze fresh in the air. There are several ways you can replicate this style and bring the Hamptons luxury to your home.
As beach side getaways, the most important takeaway from this design style is color choice. White remains the base color, adding to the light and airiness offered by wide windows, opening up the space. After white, the key focus is on natural tones. Blue takes the lead by far— a deep sea blue, or shades of nautical blue, are the perfect offset for white and cream. They’re reminiscent of the seaside, feel revitalizing and fresh, and can add a richness depending on the material of choice.
Finishes and Focal Points
There’s one key material that’s used in almost every Hamptons home: wood. Whether it’s a solid wood coffee table or simply natural wood finishes on armchair legs, wood draws the living room design together and offers a very distinctive style. Outdoor designs can feature stone and marble, clean edges in white and blue that contrast with natural finishes.
Following on from the above, natural fibers fit the Hamptons aesthetic perfectly. For a living room to feel open and airy, use fabric like linen and cotton. Like blue and white, neutral tones in creams and grays can contribute to the open living room design. Striped fabric also evokes the nautical theme, so this would be a perfect choice if you’re wanting to bring that Hamptons style home.
