Hamptons Darling!

Hamptons Darling!

Our love affair with The Hamptons doesn’t look like ending any time soon. Who didn’t want to move into Meryl Streep’s house in It’s Complicated and whip up something delicious? Or even date Jack Nicholson in Something’s Gotta Give if it meant having Diane Keaton’s fabulous house? It’s not hard to see why this look is so appealing - it speaks of relaxed, family living. Nothing too precious, and effortless in style.

Lanterns, simple chandeliers and wall lights all work beautifully to create this look. There is generally a hub in these style of homes which is part of their charm – an island bench with lanterns over it, a big farmhouse style table with a signature chandelier, or both if you’re lucky.   Try and steer clear of downlights as this is the opposite of what the Hamptons is about. Think decorative wall lights in the bathroom, beautiful lamps in the bedrooms, and lamps and pendant lights in the living rooms.

Wallpaper works very well in Hamptons-style homes and at Urban we are able to incorporate your fabrics and wallpapers into your lighting fixtures with our custom made shades. You can use this service for pendant lights, table and floor lamps, or even wall lights.

Oh, and install dimmers wherever possible so your lighting can match your mood.
