3. Is it really Hamptons you’re asking for?
See the thing is, when people say Hamptons here in Queensland, they’re often a little grey on what that really means. And when we say grey, we mean grey. Grey and white houses, grey and white kitchens, grey tiles, shades of grey white walls….(type ‘grey’ enough and it really starts to look weird!). Language is super important to design. It underpins your ability to communicate what is in your head, and our ability to transform that into a space that you love. So! Here’s a few alternative adjectives to help you describe what you might be chasing for your dream home or interior:
Volume, Height, Fresh, Coastal, Natural Fibres, Big Picture Windows, Cream on White, Glamour, At Ease, Open Plan, Traditional Features, Brass Details, Texture, Inviting, Distressed Furniture, Chunky & Comfortable Furniture….the list goes on!
Once you start putting more detailed adjectives towards your aesthetic brief you can see it starts opening up a world of possibility that isn’t as narrow as the white washed ‘Hamptons’ homes drowning our realestate magazines!
Check out some genuine Hamptons on this Pinterest board we’ve made for you here. You’ll be amazed at how far our ‘hamptons’ aesthetic in South-East Queensland has drifted from its roots!
