Hamptons Farm Project Reveal: Styling the North Wing
The Hamptons Farm estate is everything you would expect in an estate. It has a grand feel with souring ceilings, beautiful lighting and picturesque furnishings. On reflection, when we were putting the mood boards together for this project, we were always inclined to use blue and white in one of the many living spaces.
In the North Wing we chose our go to customized sofas from Molmic, which we knew had the right proportions of depth, width and comfort. Loose covers were a must in a natural linen with our customized white piping for that extra Indah Island touch. We used 3x 3 seaters and 2x singles but also wanted the comfort of a chaise style lounge that we pulled together as part of this collection. These chaises bring an element of casual class to the space. Because this room is so big, we needed to fill it without over filling the room. The central feature of this room is the fireplace from Fireplace Corner. It is the focus point for all seating with a beautiful piece of art from Felicia Aroney. Her hydrangea artwork captures the essence of the Hamptons style.
One of the special features in this wing is the beautiful fireplace. We chose this not only for the look but also its function. It throws off a fabulous heat that warms the entire room. The Fireplace Corner was so incredibly helpful on the selection, with their incredible knowledge and a gorgeous family history in the industry. Although, marble looks great when we choose this style to finish the fireplace it was always going to be tricky, as it is hazardous in the fact that it can mark and spoil. Julian from Medici Stone advised instead to use an engineered stone, that they distribute. We ended up using this amazing product on the fireplace and on our laundry and butlers bench tops. This is the closest product we have seen to Carrara marble, but is un-spoilable. We framed the fireplace with a wooden mantle from Schots Emporium. Their Melbourne range is enormous, from marble, wood and stone designs it was hard to just pick one!
