If you saw the movie, "Something's Gotta Give", you are likely to remember the stunning Hampton's home it was filmed in. I fell in love with the kitchen and promised myself that one day I would have a similar look. Hamptons style is predominantly based on a neutral colour scheme, white or a subtle hint of colour. Light filled spaces, usually with gentle shades of blue, grey, beige or white. Furniture is mostly traditional with a country look. Comfortable and relaxed, nothing too formal, the addition of a little rustic furniture works well but this must not be overdone.
While I was looking for some Hamptons inspiration, I discovered a delightful on-line store, appropriately called "Hamptons Style", run by Donna, an Australian who considers herself a workaholic but with a love of relaxed spaces. As well as her on line store, Donna has a shop located in Sanctuary Cove on Australia's Gold Coast. Fancy! Hamptons in our part of the world. I am sharing some images I feel depict this style and also some of Donna's Hamptons Style homeware.

The homeware and furniture above, is available on-line from Hamptons Style or from their Gold Coast store.
Ending this post with a stunning Queensland home that proves Hamptons style is very much alive in our little corner of the world. For more images of this fabulous home, please use the link below:
