Trends

The Hamptons style of decorating interiors has exploded in popularity in Australian homes over the past couple of years, and with good reason. Despite originating halfway around the world, in New York’s Long Island, this home décor design trend translates so easily into the laid-back Australian lifestyle – particularly in a gorgeous coastal town like Busselton!

The Hamptons style is defined by blending modern sophistication with casual beach influences to create a relaxed but polished ambience for your home interiors. The colour palette is dominated by light and whitewashed shades, with darker colours like greys and blues used to accent and accessorise. It also incorporates textures with a rustic edge such as wicker, timber, rattan, stone, metal, cotton and linen.

In terms of window furnishings, there are quite a few options that complement the Hamptons look.  White timber shutters are most strongly associated with Hamptons style due to their understated and modern look.  A hot tip for achieving the perfect effect of timber shutters without any of the associated maintenance is by installing Luxaflex Polysatin shutters. These are guaranteed not to blister, peel or warp and can literally be hosed down – so they are great for any room in your home.

If you are looking to utilise your window furnishings to incorporate some colour accents, then linen sheers are a perfect go-to, as they are available in a breadth of colours and fit perfectly into the textural repertoire of Hamptons styling. Sheers are also great at providing privacy while still allowing natural light to billow into a space, which is part of the essence of a well-done Hamptons Style room. All of our sheer curtains can be custom-made to fit any sized window and beautifully matched to the colour palette you are decorating with, especially light grey and blue tones that are commonly used to realise the Hamptons nautical-theme. We stock fabrics from some of the best textile houses from around the world, so you have a huge range to choose from!
