The Hamptons style evokes a feeling of breezy, laid-back luxury – something we could all do with a little (or a lot) of right now!
With a calming cool, neutral colour scheme, an abundance of light, whitewashed over-sized furniture and an overall feeling of timeless glamour, we have selected some of our most-loved Stephen Graver Hamptons inspired projects that we would love to escape in.
With its dark wooden flooring, white units, large sash windows and pendant lighting; the Hurstbourne is instantly recognisably inspired by the Hampton’s style. Featuring a large kitchen and dining area, big enough for a large dinner party, this kitchen has classic clean lines with a timeless feel.
The centrepiece is the island, perfect for informal eating. Hand-painted on site and fitted with American pull handles. The finishing touch is the 50mm thick marble work surface, to give a feel of pure indulgence. Partnered with a Wolf range cooker and Sub-Zero fridge/freezer, this kitchen knows no boundaries.
A precursor to The Hampton’s style is American Colonial architecture. The Malmesbury takes influence from both periods; with its traditional flagstone floor, contrasting white walls and light linen curtains – the combination of luxury materials typical to the colonial style.
The panelled timber cabinet doors offer a subtle nod to the coastal influence, and provide an abundance of storage space including a bespoke tea and coffee station.
Sub-Zero fridge/freezers frame the large Lacanche stove, creating symmetry within the relaxed scheme. The large central island provides an ideal space for food preparation and informal dining, while the over-sized rustic dining table is the central focal point to the space, a perfect place for entertaining.
American influence has been interpreted with an English perspective. The focal point to The Hampton is the large island featuring hand-painted cabinets, complete with ice-box handles and hinges, sourced in the USA and nickel plated in the UK. Beyond the island is home to heavy-duty Sub-Zero refrigeration, framing the impressive quintessentially British Aga range. With panelled walls, large sash windows, pendant lighting and light colour-scheme The Hamptons influence is clear to be seen.
Winner of the kbbreview Awards 2011, it is an exciting bespoke kitchen that made the judges comment “…it gave value for money and exceeded all expectations.”
