Cool & Coastal: Get The Hamptons’ New England style this season

Cool & Coastal: Get The Hamptons’ New England style this season

This is the time of year when America’s great and the good decamp from their summer homes in The Hamptons: Long Island (south shore, darling), Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and of course our favourite – Nantucket island – all seriously cool in a kind of relaxed easy going way. But Hampton’s style isn’t only for the rich and famous, although expect to rub shoulders with a star studded crowd if you rent there in the summer.

ES Magazine, one of our favourite publications along with sister paper The Evening Standard (I’m still amazed that publications of this quality are free) is always a great source of interior design inspiration. In today’s edition commissioning interiors editor Dee Acharya takes a look at Sandra Rhodes Bermondsey apartment and not surprisingly, it is a riot of colour. Dee describes Dame Zandra’s style as “maximalist” as every surface is covered in collections of some sort from stones and crystals from the Atlas Mountains to Carol McNicol ceramics. The walls are citrus and the Amtico venial flooring is is hot-pink.
