Design elements of a Hamptons home
you want to build a classic Hamptons style home in Australia. In that
case, D’Alesio says the key features to incorporate into your interior
design are light and bright material palettes, feature panelling, cladding on walls, and high ceilings.
“The Hamptons look, in our opinion, is the ornateness, the elegance.
It’s a sophisticated layer of detail that elevates the spaces,” he says.
“It’s the high pitched roof, the James Hardy linea boards, it’s the
detail in the windows, and the round porthole window you see in tour Designer and Signature ranges. There’s a subtlety in the moulding, which is quite flat. There’s nothing over the top, and it’s very understated.”
With other US trends, like barn-style exteriors with steep roof pitches and glazed gables,
starting to trickle into Australian dream home designs, it appears that
the Hamptons vibe, country style and the American influence are here to stay.
