The Hamptons comes to Aussie shores… Bringing its luxury coastal style to a home like yours.
13th September 2022
Inspired by the seaside town frequented by New York’s elite and dotted with grand, picture-perfect homes, the Hamptons style is the ultimate in sophisticated beachside living. And with our warm climate, enviable coastline and near-year-round outdoor lifestyle, it’s no wonder that this style of home is making waves on Aussie shores and has become sought-after by homeowners across the country.
Long have Hamptons-inspired kitchens and interiors been a mainstay in Australian interior design, but we have now begun to adopt a holistic approach throughout the entire home. So it’s fitting that interior designer Natalee Bowen brings us a complete guide to creating our very own Hamptons-style abode with her newly released publication, Hamptons Living. Renowned as the Hamptons design expert in Australia, Natalee takes readers by the hand and teaches them how to emulate the signature East Coast American design for themselves and their families.
“There is no doubt that our nation has fallen under the crisp white spell of the Hamptons, and through these pages I want to indulge you and show you the beauty of the Hamptons through my eyes,” Natalee says. “I will give you the road map of how to, what to and why to build these incredible homes. With inspiration from homes direct from the Hamptons, to homes built with the Hamptons in mind, you will get to see these awe-inspiring projects and learn direct from their owners’ experiences.”
Easy to read and featuring beautiful imagery to make for elegant visual storytelling, Hamptons Living takes us through the history of the region and style and how it evolved in Australia, before giving readers step-by-step instructions to interpreting the design approach themselves. Readers are taken through the different Hamptons sub styles – classic, country, coastal, tropical and modern – and learn what décor items and elements make up each theme, while a room-by-room guide breaks down how to decorate each space in the home, from the bathroom to the backyard and everywhere in between.
This complete guide aims to empower readers and equip them with the knowledge and tools to create their very own Hamptons dream home here in Australia.
