4 steps to creating a stunning Hamptons inspired home
Hamptons inspired homes are a trend that’s here to stay! Characterised by their earthy tones, natural textures, neutral colour palettes and accents of stunning ocean blues, Hamptons homes are the height of domestic luxury.
Living in a Hamptons inspired home will make you believe the seaside is right on your doorstep - truly a lifetime in paradise!
At Montgomery Homes, we’ve added a range of Hamptons inspired home designs and facades to our collection, so you can build an architectural Hamptons home at a fraction of the price. In this blog, we share some tips on how to create a genuine Hamptons style home, from building to Hamptons decor.
#1. Choose an experienced builder to erect your Hamptons inspired home
Before you can start decorating, you need to build the house! The first step on your journey to a Hamptons inspired home is to choose an experienced builder with stunning Hamptons home designs in their portfolio.
On the outside, Hamptons style homes are adorned with features like masonry columns, pediments and ox-eye windows, as well as external walls with battens or cladding (weatherboards) for a seaside vibe. The interior design, on the other hand, is characterised by natural textures like marble and stone.
At Montgomery Homes, we have multiple Hamptons homes on display including the Whitehaven 238, Brighton 229, Riviera 1 267, and the Avoca 210 - all available in different colours and designs to suit your unique sense of style.
Our home building and design specialists will help you choose colour schemes and finishes for your new home in our exclusive Gallery One Selections Centre - but in the meantime, be sure to check out our Inspiration Gallery where you’ll find some stunning Hamptons designs and ideas!

#2. Create a Hamptons themed mood board for inspiration
The next step is to visualise your Hamptons home decor look and start planning!
Consider the colour scheme and finishes you’ve chosen for your interior design, then start browsing through Pinterest and our Inspiration Gallery for home decor ideas. We recommend building a mood board or portfolio of looks, textures, homewares, and more, so you can see these looks combined and guide your homeware shopping for the future.

#3. Choose neutral coloured furniture & earthy textures...
Hamptons decor is all about natural, earthy textures and tones. In our Avoca 210 display home in Huntlee, North Rothbury, for example, you’ll find white stone benchtops, white and grey cabinets, dark timber floorboards, and 100% neutral colours like white, brown, and a contrasting black to modernise the style.
You can complement your Hamptons home decor with textured wooden furniture like dining tables, coffee tables, beds and bedside tables; ocean themed knick knacks like beachwood, discarded nets, aging anchors, and lifebuoys; linen curtains and throw blankets, and even tassels where possible.
#4. ...Or choose a darker colour scheme to make the interior design really pop!
While traditional beach homes are characterised by the “au naturale” look, it’s not an absolute essential - you can achieve a darker, more “luxe” look with navy blues and matte black or gold accents.
Our Riviera 267 display home in Redbank, North Richmond, is teeming with contrasting elements like stunning white walls and dark navy furniture as well as matte black tables and chair settings, rose gold tapware, and stone benchtops. The navy, black, and white colour scheme creates a contemporary “seaside” atmosphere.
Consider decorating your own Hamptons home with black or navy pillows, throw blankets with navy and white stripes, lots of indoor plants, and metal appliances like lamps and tapware.
