A guide to Boho Hamptons styling.
Aug 28, 2019
The Hamptons style of homes, both inside and outside, has taken the styling world by storm. We can’t get enough of the beautiful blue hues, natural light and big open-plan spaces that the Hamptons look entails. Here at Coral Homes, we re-think the ordinary and create innovative home designs that have never being seen. So, we’ve decided to present our take on the classic Hamptons… introducing BOHO HAMPTONS.
If you’re pulled towards the laidback coastal life over the New Yorker jetsetter, Boho Hamptons is for you. It’s the epitome of a relaxed, slightly hippie lifestyle where health meets happiness. With the Boho Hamptons style, you’ll see a lot of natural materials, a million different textures and lots of indoor plants. Here is our guide on how to introduce Boho Hamptons into your home:
- Materials: Think about using linen and rattan as feature pieces rather than add-ons. A large rattan jute rug can instantly add a relaxed boho vibe to a space, without drawing too much attention from traditional Hampton elements like light walls and natural light.
- Greenery: With Boho Hamptons styling, forget the flowers, it’s all about the greenery. Where you’d once turn to an enormous bunch of elegant flowers or orchids on a console, it’s time to get some greenery. Think of a big Fiddle Leaf fig in the corner that demands attention, or various Spider plants to add pops of green into your lounge room.
- Variety: If traditional Hamptons is all about sticking to similar textures and shapes, Boho Hamptons is the opposite. An eclectic mix of pendants, various shaped mirrors and a whole host of different rugs and cushions is what makes the styling truly Boho. Don’t be afraid to layer rugs, use contrasting patterns (of a similar blue/white/beige colour pattern)
- Lighting: A classic trait of the Hamptons is the natural light flowing in, and there’s no difference here. The more natural light, the better. Opt for sheer curtains that will let the light flood in, and use warm light globes to create a warm and welcoming environment.
