Hamptons style is a blend of elegant and sophisticated design, with a coastal warmth and cosiness that makes it ideal for relaxed, laid-back living.  This beautiful style is derived from the Hamptons, an upmarket seaside area on New York's famed Long Island, where some of the most expensive homes in the United States are found.

 
But this timeless design is no loner reserved for rich New Yorkers, with Hamptons' relaxed seaside elegance now synonymous with the Aussie beach lifestlye. Hamptons style has become increasingly popular in Australia as it allows for a classic home with timeless elegance but also adds the relaxed coastal vibe so often sought after by Australian home buyers.
