The Hamptons style is a blend of elegant and sophisticated design, with a coastal warmth and cosiness. This beautiful design style is derived from The Hamptons, an upmarket seaside area on Long Island, New York, where some of the most expensive homes in the United States are situated.
The Hamptons style has become increasingly popular in Australia as it allows for a classic home with timeless elegance but also adds the relaxed beachy flavor, synonymous with Aussie culture.
