Choosing a style for your property

1. Hamptons

the Hamptons are a string of resort villages and towns along a stretch of long island, in New York, USA, which have inspired a specific design style. the Hamptons look is possibly the most popular interior and exterior style for Australian homes. it is known for its simple yet sophisticated palette of soft, natural colours, materials and textures, which create a relaxed yet classic look and feel.

Key features

  • Washed timber flooring or dark timber flooring

  • Weathered timbers in furniture and accessories

  • rattan or wicker furniture (usually outdoors but occasionally indoors)

  • White ceilings, skirting, architraves and trim

  • soft linen or cotton window coverings or white plantation shutters

  • soft linens and cottons in cushions, bedding, lampshades and accessories

  • Chrome or glass details in pendant lights and lamps

2. Scandinavian

Scandinavian style is known for its contemporary look and feel, incorporating warm timber tones with crisp or off whites, soft neutral colours and pops of colour through artwork
and accessories.

A similar style is the ‘mid-century modern’ look. this era popularised danish-inspired design in interiors. these two ‘styles’ often work well together, and can easily overlap in furniture and accessory selections.

Key features

  • soft palette of whites, greys, charcoals and pastel tones

  • Pops of colour through artwork and accessories

  • Warm timber tones in furniture and flooring

  • Furniture has clean lines, shape and tapered legs

  • Weathered or washed look timbers in flooring and furniture

3. industrial

industrial style typically is an eclectic blend of industrial, vintage or contemporary elements, and it comes from, or may be inspired by, the industrial products or the workshops that used to make them.

Key features

  • exposed brick walls

  • Concrete floors or panels

  • timber features in cabinetry and furniture

  • subway tiles in bathrooms and kitchen splashbacks

  • dark metal such as iron or steel in furniture and accessories

  • Black accent colours in furniture, tap ware and accessories

4. Classic

Classic style incorporates elements and principles that are timeless, meaning they are still relevant and used today externally and internally. houses and rooms of this style tend to be symmetrical in layout, design and décor may incorporate classic elements such as cornices, columns and arches, a blend of traditional and modern detailing and a rich palette of timbers, metallic finishes, charcoal, black, taupe and soft whites.

Key features

  • dark, rich timber tones in furniture and flooring

  • sometimes rustic timber elements in furniture and accessories

  • ornate and modern detailing

  • Plush, luxurious carpets and rugs

  • Chrome, glass and metallic accents in furniture and accessories

  • rich textures and fabrics in cushions, bedding, window treatments and wallpaper

5. Coastal

unlike the hamptons look, coastal style has a more laid-back look and feel, referencing little beach shacks common along the coastline of Australia. think weathered and worn timbers, natural materials and textures, and a fresh colour palette of blues, greens, whites and greys.

Key features

  • light to warm timber tones in furniture, flooring and accessories

  • Crisp white or off-white ceiling, woodwork and detailing

  • rattan and wicker furniture (usually outdoors)

  • sisal, jute, cotton and linen in furniture, rugs, bedding and cushions

  • Pops of colour in accessories

  • neutral colour palette of blues, greens, greys and whites

  • indoor greenery and pot plants
