In the design lexicon when did the “Hamptons” become a pejorative? We all shudder and nod knowingly when confronted by a home that has been inappropriately “Hamptonised” but what happens when you actually live in the Hamptons and want a new take on the beachy, nautical themed, cliched blue and white riff that all your neighbours (and half the world) are rocking. Perhaps a little boho, retro with a dash of mid century and a pop of pink. Perhaps a stylish home just like this East Hampton one by Purveyor Design.
TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

Contemporary by the sea with a mid century vibe taken to the next level with terracotta floors, limewashed ceilings, concrete accents and Oblica fireplace. Add in the bold art works and on point furnishings and this is one cool beach shack in Jan Juc on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Unfortunately for us it has been quickly snapped up. Link here while it lasts.
“This mindblowing 5,000 square foot ocean-front luxury villa sits in one of Bali’s most spectacular settings on the rocks of Uluwatu directly facing one of the Island’s iconic waves, Impossibles. With its turquoise shutters, panoramic view and chic understated yet meticulously detailed design, Mandala. The Rocks. is truly the ultimate beach house.”
A salty tang is in the air and the rhythmic crash of waves provide the sound track. Interiors are light and bright with blonde wood furniture, a washed out colour palette of whites and sands with accents of black. The look is relaxed but sophisticated with an emphasis on natural textures. It’s summer at the beach in Australia. It’s Noosa style by CLO Studios.
