How do I achieve Hamptons-style decor?

How do I achieve Hamptons-style decor?

Opt for light, bright colors as the basis of your color scheme. You can’t go wrong with an all-white look – in fact, a white-on-white scheme is the epitome of Hamptons style. When you do inject some color, a sophisticated deep blue offers a beautiful contrast to white and feels very nautical. Beyond a classic white and blue combo, go for soft, muted shades for a summery coastal touch – I’m talking earthy greens, barely-there pinks and even a pop of sunshine yellow.

Elegant, elevated materials like crisp cottons, clean wooden pieces, and maybe a marble accent or two are all great options for your decorative pieces. All texture must be carefully considered so as not to distract from the crisp, sleek silhouettes - think rope detailing and soft wavy designs.
