Hamptons Style Kitchen Decorating

White dominates Hamptons style kitchen interiors. It is therefore imperative that you pay special attention to the finishing touches such as tiles, handles, and moldings. These finishing details add layers of interest and texture.

Traditional-style tapware is a great choice. Paneled, white shaker style cabinetry also work well with Hamptons style homes. The cabinetry should be finished with hooded knobs and pulls in chrome or silver.

Complete the look with some statement pendant lights. And add a couple of bar stools for a decorative touch and to tie the look together.

Hamptons Style Bedroom

A Hampton style bedroom can’t be complete without printed linen and lots of blue accents. Invest in soft, time-worn linens, oak timber flooring, and rustic timber furniture. The result will be an awesome balance between refined and relaxed living.

Add some hints of coastal-inspired décor in turquoise, blues, timber, and rattan to evoke the feeling of seaside heritage.
