Ask Our Hamptons Home Builders: What Are the Latest Hamptons Home Design Trends?
Hamptons home design is one of the most popular styles in the country and copied around the world. However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any room for change. In many cases, trends often compliment the area’s classic style. In others, small changes may help accentuate and enhance the classic Hamptons design. For 2022, be on the lookout for these style trends.
Choose South Fork Custom Home design, the top Hamptons home builders, for timeless and adaptable design. Warm accents in living rooms can help traditional cool colors pop, or you can go outside the box with colorful wallpaper. Bedrooms benefit from calmer colors with soft furnishings and symmetry adding to the relaxed atmosphere. For bathrooms, choose marble surfaces with luxurious bathtubs and brass accents. The New Modern has become more popular in kitchens, favoring functionality over ornate decor.
Get In Style With South Fork Hamptons Home Builders
According to Krystal Sagona in Better Homes and Gardens, Hampton-style interiors have three main influences:
Of these, Empire has the most influence on Hamptons designers. This is thanks to the simplicity of the patterns and designs being imitated. This style took its cue from Neoclassicism with a focus on spacious rooms that valued symmetry. There was also a focus on decorative wall friezes, paintings, and stuccos.
As Hamptons home builders, we make sure that every home we build complements the history of the area, has a forward-looking style, and meets all of our own standards of quality. We do this by favoring designs that are bright, distinctive, open, and modern.

Living Rooms, Hamptons Style
Living rooms in this well-to-do area are known for being built in grand proportions. These roomy spaces are often painted in cool colors, mimicking their nautical heritage. Whether it’s a historic estate or one of the many new construction homes in the Hamptons, you can never go wrong by opting for a beachy vibe. You can pair them with warm neutral colors to really make them pop.
While the classic Hamptons look never goes out of style, that doesn’t mean you can’t spice up your living room. As Dana Buckley points out in Forbes, wallpaper is making a comeback in a big way. But not just any wallpaper. Modern Hamptons-style decorating involves creative and funky patterns in small doses to contrast the overall serene appearance.
The Relaxing Hamptons Style Bedroom of Your Dreams
Colorful wallpaper may be fine for your living room, but it’s not ideal for your bedroom. Like all bedroom design styles, the Hampton style bedroom is a place of calm and relaxation. Whether you’re an experienced or amateur interior designer, it’s best to stick to soft, neutral colors such as sand, creams, whites, and tans. Our team of Hamptons builders will provide the natural light to accentuate these colors for the perfect relaxing space.
Your bed should be the focal point of this room with art and soft furnishings such as chairs and ottomans to create a relaxing symmetry. Matching lamps on either side of the bed increase the feeling of symmetry as well as produce soft, calming light. They also help draw attention to the bed, highlighting it as the crown jewel of the room.
The Perfect (Modern) Hamptons Style Bathroom Decor
Like living rooms, the Hamptons style bathroom allows for some variation and playfulness. Most of all, it’s an opportunity to add lavish touches where you want them most. Marble surfaces, ornate cabinets, and brass detailing create a stunning feast for your eyes as you relax after a hard day of play. Perhaps more than other rooms, bathrooms give ample opportunity for luxury.
As with all Hamptons interior design, no bathroom is complete without a large window for natural light. Placing your bath below the window lets you wash as much in light as in water. Marble floors, wall tiles, and countertops are perfect for reflecting light, enhancing the space even further. Brass detailing offsets the light, allowing it to pop even more.
A Semi-Minimalist Approach to Kitchens in Hamptons Homes
As Hamptons home builders, we’re always looking for the latest styles and trends. One trend on the rise is the New Modern, which favors function and eco-friendly designs over ornate details. According to Bob Bakes of Bakes & Kropp, a Hamptons kitchen design group:
2022 will be a continuation of the sense of expression that we are seeing in 2021. People are steering clear of true minimalism and are opting for a structured modern twist with some softer elements. We will continue to see a trend towards vibrancy and expression.
The New Modern kitchen style can be spotted thanks to its focus on:
- Warm colors and natural wood finishes
- Mix-and-match metals that repeat throughout the kitchen
- Built-in appliances and storage
- Energy-efficient appliances
This style is all about making use of what you already have. Rather than completely replacing cabinets, you can simply get new cabinet doors to freshen up your space.
