There’s sometimes a misconception that Hamptons design means that you only use neutrals like white and cream. We disagree—there are lovely ways you can use this colour while staying true to the aesthetic of Hamptons design.
Navy is a timeless colour that never wanes in popularity or appeal. It’s a bold colour, but at the same time, it’s traditional and sophisticated. It can work particularly well in Hamptons design because it feels nautical and stays in line with elements of the coastal lifestyle.
Cool colours like navy can add depth to small rooms. It is often used in decor and furniture as a statement piece to add strong and alluring pops of colour.
