How To Create A Hamptons Bedroom

The Hamptons Style has captured our hearts. It is the byword for all things chic, sophisticated and beach-style. Originally taking its name from the grand beachside mansions on Long Island, New York, the Hamptons style is the perfect balance of refined and relaxed living with its celebration of white in its many hues, as well as touches of duck egg blue and even black. If you crave a space that says “come in and relax”, a Hamptons style bedroom is the look for you. Because classics never go out of style...


1. The Bedroom of Dreams

We ask so much of our bedrooms: they are the place we go to escape the hustle and bustle of the day and recharge for the next one. As well as looking pretty, they also need to be practical: lighting, storage, and of course, the bed, all deserve some design love and attention to make sure the bedroom retreat is just that. Once you have finessed your floor plan, you can easily embrace the elegant and luxurious, casual and comfortable Hamptons vibes with our must-know rules. No matter how far from Long Island you are, this look fits oh-so well into our coastal regions as well as into anyone who's dreaming of the sea... Prepare to not ever want to get out of bed again.

2. It’s all about the bed, (Sleepyhead)

As the biggest piece of furniture in the room, your bed is undeniably the focal point and sets the style for the rest of your space. A large upholstered bedhead is a must-have in any Hamptons style bedroom: it’s classic, it’s soft, it’s stylish. But if you prefer a wooden bedhead, an oversized timber frame in a neutral shade will also work. Bonus points for positioning it for optimum ocean views.

3. Let’s talk textiles

In a Hamptons style bedroom, it’s all about layers of linen and cotton. Embrace white in all its shades and perhaps some blue tones in your accent cushions. You won’t find any intricate patterns here; let the layers and thread count do all the talking.

4. White, Blue and Timber

Centred around white, the iconic Hamptons Style colour palette is of classic elegance, rather than traditional beige. As the hallmark colour of Hamptons interiors, white amplifies light and creates the easy, airy, chic feel this look is so well known for. After white, it's fair to say that duck egg blue is the runner-up - combined with neutral timber tones and white it keeps the feel breezy and open, even when you don’t have a large space to work with like the massive bedrooms in the original Hamptons mansions.

5. Light up your life

Think about how you use your bedroom and layer your lighting accordingly. Do you love a good book in bed? Is it still dark most mornings when you wake up? Consider a combination of directional lighting, bedside lamps or a statement chandelier – all of these are equally at home in a Hamptons style boudoir. And a chandelier brings a little glamour to a Hamptons sleep space.

6. Reflecting on mirrors, and art

A big, beautiful mirror adds more than a touch of elegance. Choose one with a gorgeous frame and it will double as a piece of art you won’t tire of anytime soon. If you are looking for some Hamptons style artwork, beach themed prints that mimic the colour palette of the room always look great and are not too busy for the serene space you’ve just created. 
Sleep tight.
