Get the Look – Hamptons Style

At the moment I’m working on a ‘Hamptons inspired’ garden and pool for a client in Melbourne.  The Hamptons style is a look that will never go out of style – ageless, classic, conservative, a little decorative, and most importantly, lush green and lots of florals.  Grey, weathered shingled houses with white timber trim, hydrangeas, expansive green lawns punctuated by sparkling blue pools, white Adirondack chairs and blue chinese jelly jars filled with orchids – you get the picture! The garden plays a big part in setting the scene for this timeless look, with patios & pergolas connecting the inside to out. Sweeping porches covered in Hydrangeas over looking acres of manicured lawn may not be possible (for most!) but there are many ways to re-create this seemingly, casual, beachy look in your own garden. Here are some tips and inspiration to get you started on your Hamptons style garden.

White Adirondack chairs on green lawns are a must! For similar buy here.


Keep lawns & hedges meticulously clipped. The classic white & blue colour scheme will never date.


While hedges are kept pruned, let blooms run wild! Again the colour palette is kept to white, blue & purple.


Instead of paving around your pool, just plonk it down into the manicured lawn.
