How to Hamptons Tip #4: Choose geometrical over floral

Posted by Home Styling Warehouse on 22nd May 2018

Fresh orchids are a signature element in most Hamptons homes. However, once you begin building in more flowers and floral patterns into your design, you begin to encroach on French provincial or country cottage territory. If you were after a Hamptons look, try using more geometrical patterns instead of floral patterns. Geometrical patterns add interesting focal points for an otherwise plain Hamptons palette.

Hamptons style homes are characterised by clean lines and refined details. Discreet use of geometrical patterns in your space is one of the best ways to achieve this.
