The change of season to spring is a time for revamping, sprucing and enhancing the home's interior as the transition to warmer months begins. Spring is turning a corner, so inviting new pieces and experimenting with different looks and styles is front of mind. The current climate of the world has definitely had an impact on the type of homes we want to create. Instead of reducing in the name of minimalism, we are now exploring spaces filled with pieces that reflect our personality, and can quickly shift from work, to play and finally relaxation. With temperatures warming and the sun staying up a little longer, our desire to be outdoors has never been greater. This winter there was a shift to introducing colour into the home; earthy browns, terracotta, caramels, breezy blue or calming greens. This season's focus is creating a fresh and airy palette inspired by the Hamptons. The Hamptons style is characterised by a casual elegance, with interiors featuring refreshing colours and marine motifs that echo a relaxed coastal environment. Usually featuring generous sofas in living areas for relaxing and reclining, while substantial island benches indoors and outdoors become the centrepiece for entertaining and large gatherings. The Hamptons inspired interior features a base colour palette of natural hues and crisp white. There are endless shades of white, and there is no right or wrong. These colours, inspired by nature and reminiscent of the seaside, can be elevated with florals and stripes. Add complementary rustic timber finishes. Timber - an easy to work with base – effortlessly creates an interior of relaxed elegance. When choosing furnishings size matters. Think beach front luxury resorts with deep, overstuffed sofas, covered in white or natural linen slipcovers, or upholstered in pale neutrals with stripes. Sideboards and coffee tables in natural timbers add extra depth to your Hamptons space, the Mango Creek collection from OZ Design Furniture is a perfect fit. Reminiscent of coastal living, the Mango Creek collection has an assortment of pieces, from coffee tables to extension dining tables and everything in between. Made from Indonesian mangowood, the collection is available in rustic chocolate, white or natural timber finishes, with each piece exceptionally detailed to show its natural beauty. Use homewares, colour and decor bring the room together. White-washed linens, ceramics and glass can give an abundance of textures to your living space. Cushions and vases are essential and are a great way to add interesting elements to a space. Nautical accessories are great, but scatter them with rattan, wicker and linen pieces to avoid a distinctly sailor vibe to your home. The room should not look bare - to truly capture the essence of the Hamptons style it must evoke a lived -in appearance. Coastal is a style to "live in". In this case, we shouldn't make our house look like a precious showroom. Here, comfort is most important and it shouldn't be compromised for looks, but rather combined.
