What exactly is Hamptons style?
An elegant, sophisticated design which exudes a luxurious feel while radiating warmth and cosiness.

- + Beautiful interior pendant lights in rooms to add magic to the setting
- + A fireplace which matches the styling of the light fittings
- + Window furnishings, shutters and sheer curtains

How can evermore help custom design your Hamptons home? -
At evermore designed homes, we have developed a reputation as a leading builder and specialist of Hampton style homes. The Hamptons style exudes elegant beauty and timeless architecture and has quickly become one of our most popular styles of design. Our highly experienced evermore team has been designing Hamptons style homes since it started trending in Australia in 2005, following the launch of Desperate Housewives. The hit TV show starring Teri Hatcher, Eva Longaria and Marcia Cross, was set in a fictional street called Wisteria Lane and featured a collection of Hamptons style homes. This we believe was the initial introduction of Hamptons influences into Queensland architecture.
Why is the Hamptons style so popular? -
The Hamptons design has become popular because it delivers our clients with the best of both worlds – a home design that radiates true elegance and beauty, while exerting a relaxed and comfortable feel.
For our clients, the Hamptons style is generally their ‘forever home’ so choosing the design is based on emotions, which is why the homes we build are always warm and homely.
Can I personalise my Hamptons style design? -
Absolutely…Many of our clients blend in elements from other styles, such as industrial and barn style, to add a personal touch to the design. For clients who want to mix and match their design, Whether you want to choose a traditional Hamptons style design or feature other elements such as an industrial or barn style design, we are experts at reflecting our clients’ needs.
A traditional Hamptons style home typically features a white palette or soft neutral tones on interior and external walls which creates a sense of unity. Some clients like to add a contrasting colour, such as a black kitchen island bench, complimented by shaker profile detailing to the cabinetry, to add a personal touch.
The piece de resistance of many of our Hampton style homes is the fireplace with feature timber mantle – which matches the styling of the light fittings. And why stop at one fireplace when you can have two! An increasing number of our clients are choosing a second fireplace to add to the warmth and feel of the design by incorporating formal and informal spaces.
Furnishings are also very important when it comes to the Hamptons style home. Individual pieces can help bring the design together, these include window furnishings, shutters, sheer curtains or even a striking pendant lighting feature over the island bench in the kitchen or in staircase voids.
