Coastal or Hamptons Décor Style will create an environment that is fresh and inviting, informal yet with more order than other décor styles. It induces a carefree, relaxed feel and a sense of balance and harmony that natural elements bring. The Hamptons Style is characterized by painted finishes that reflect the natural color palette of a coastal setting, complemented by comfortable furnishings, soft lines and simple styling accessories. Coastal materials such as shells, coral, driftwood, jute and rattan feature in this style and can be used to tie a room or space together or to bring the relaxed feel to an otherwise more classical or stark contemporary décor. Artworks and other decorating items that reflect marine flora or fauna or nautical motifs are perfect.
