The Hamptons are a string of towns located on the tip of Long Island, NY. They are known for their iconic mansion neighbourhoods, endless beaches, and vacationing celebrities. Many of the rich and famous spend their summers on spacious estates nestled along the Atlantic Ocean, often hidden behind tall hedges.
Capture the coastal elegance of a traditional U.S Hamptons style home with lush tropical planting mixed with formal white and blue Hydrangeas. Think stripey soft furnishings in blues and greys, painted white wooden fences, weatherboard cladding and manicured lawns.
