Hampton Style Homes

Hampton style homes are a fusion of elegant and sophisticated design, giving off a coastal vibe, ideal for a relaxed laid-back lifestyle.

They are renowned for their beautiful, classic but modern style with fresh white-washed colours, simple textures, beach-style blues and timber floors.

Inspired by…

Hampton style homes were inspired by the architecture and decorating of the holiday homes in the luxury seaside communities along the coast of upstate New York’s neighbouring Long Island.

The Hamptons Style

These homes often feature:

  • Gable-style roofs
  • Large balconies
  • Neutral and washed-out coloured furniture and walls
  • Large windows overlooking coastal views
  • Timber flooring
  • Gorgeous soft furnishings
  • Rustic and antique accessories
  • Marble or stone bench tops
  • Pendant lighting
  • Heavily cushioned upholstery


Often 2-storey structures, Hampton style houses are usually beach-front estates, overlooking the ocean, but that is not always the case. They are starting to feature in suburbs as well.

Lots of Light

Filled with natural light, these homes are beautifully proportioned, well detailed, fresh, and breezy, bringing together traditional architecture and an elegant coastal style.

Natural Tones

The natural tones of the interior and the timber flooring are a perfect combination to give off a beachy vibe. White is often the main colour in a Hampton style home along with a neutral palette of creams, linen tones, greys and blues.

Popular in Australia

Luxury Hampton-style homes are becoming very popular in Australia due to their combination of timeless elegance and laid-back beach style.
