Hampton Style: Airy Linens & Fresh Blues

Hampton Style Inspiration

Imagine yourself…toes in the sand, a warm summer’s breeze on your back, the sound of the ocean in the distance – this is the epitome of Hampton style. It’s about mixing clean, fresh hues with rustic outdoor elements, and surprisingly with wallpaper it’s not that hard to achieve!

Hampton style originates from the popular seaside vacation destination along Eastern Long Island in New York and tends to embody both a classic and contemporary décor style offset by natural and rustic influences. Colors tend to include both fresh and neutral tones that work to open up your homes interior to a light and airy feeling throughout. This makes linen décor and upholstery a popular choice both for its natural and casual look as well as its effortless appeal.

By starting with a neutral, linen textured wallpaper as seen from above, the stage is already set to create that perfect Hampton style getaway. By adding some imperfect touches such as driftwood accents or natural details that may include plants, shells or sea glass displayed in a jar, you have created the perfect combination of classic style meets rustic tranquility.

Adding a pop of light blue to décor is another way to achieve that breezy and serene vibe that seems to follow Hampton style. White and blue combos tend to bring ocean elements to the forefront with hues that remind of us glistening blue skies or the rippling enchantment of the ocean.

Trending: Flame Stitch

Sage Chestnut hill Flame Stitch wallpaper from Modern Gentleman wallpaper collection

Sage Chestnut hill Flame Stitch wallpaper from Modern Gentleman wallpaper collection

Flame stitch has been making waves in the fashion and home decor industries since the 17th century, bringing a groovy mathematically-chic chevron-like print to everything from pillows to crochet knit dresses and scarves. This fun zig-zag look has spiked in trends lately, popping up on the runways and in all sorts of accessories, linens, and rugs. The stylish stitch was inspired by a needlework embroidery technique, and was named for a set of chairs bearing the design found in Bargello palace in Florence Italy. Hence the nickname Florentine flame stitch, and bargello waves. The impact of the chic look can vary from fashionably embellished to downright flashy, depending on the scale and color palette used. Missoni is a popular Italian fashion house brand known for their signature flame stitch inspired prints. When they came out with a designer line for Target, most items sold out within 24 hours and Target’s website crashed multiple times! Jonathan Adler, another one of our favorite home fashion muses, is also known for his love of the “granny gone wild” bargello style print. Here are a few of our favorite finds including the flame stitch look.

maisonetobjet14 copie

Fashion does not merely reflect the culture of the times, it is a key characteristic of a culture itself. As each passing moment marches on, and history is written, so do our tastes evolve. While good design is truly timeless, it is a pursuit of happiness and inspiration to keep on top of the constantly emerging trends.Each year we look forward to Maison & Objet for a fresh perspective on home decor trends and the best showing of rising looks. It is the pinnacle of cutting edge interior design energy, where promising artists and visionary concepts mingle with the finest standards in the art of decor. Maison brings talent and influences from around the globe together for a show that is not to be missed! Soon after Fashion Week takes over NYC and we get to see how the home and garment trends intersect and play off of each other. Dominant colors, patterns and finishes emerge and we cannot help but be swept up in a la mode fascinations and artistic expression of the design world. Here are a few of our observations from the halls and runways this year.

Spring 2014 Color Trends for home Decor

 

Decor Color Trends 2014

Decor Color Trends 2014 as Observed by our Creative Director Paula Berberian at Maison et Objet

Colors! Pantone are the color authorities and our go-to resource for color trends.This year the color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid and we have already seen the hue start to take off in everything from pillows to jewelry, wall decor, and clothes. Striking an equilibrium with the imaginative purple hue, pretty pastels like hemlock green, placid blue and soft violet are balanced with dazzling blue with a cobalt tendency, celosian orange, freesia yellow and cayenne red. Sand and paloma grey bring thoughtful neutrals to the mix for a sophisticated poise. We were certainly seeing a lot of orange on the runways at FWNY last week, as well as delicate blushing pinks and purples and olive greens with plenty of black, grey, cream and white. Walking the halls of Maison, pink was the belle of the ball. Deep coral pink tones, as well as mid-tone pink pastels were gracing home decor products across the boars. Mid tone pastels including sage, yellow and pale blues were also popular, in addition to plenty of timeless taupes, beige and grey neutrals.

Prints! Western prints and themes have been picking up traction. We have been seeing more antlers and quirky taxidermy influences in decor, as well as global versions of Southwestern prints. Think Ralph Lauren American cabin inspirations, with plaids, checks and ropes as well as animal pelts. Dhurries, colorful area rugs indiginous to India, were prevalent, layering floors with a mix of worldly patterns and contemporary prints. We are also seeing a lot of Tropicana inspirations like pink flamingos, bananas and palm trees. Subtle retro looks that have been simplified for a sophisticated, modern appeal are everywhere. In the same category, Geometrics reminisce on the 80′s, but with a fresh perspective. Flower prints took on a pixelated, blurry look for a futuristic yet pretty effect. Baroque influences were also evident across all sorts of home decor looks. Cultured, ethnic inspirations are still very much in. Beautiful blooming florals, watercolor florals and elegant textures were prevalent, as well as traditional designs with new techniques.

Building Materials, Textiles and Finishes: brass was plentiful, and gold, as well as heaps of copper and dark metals, along with feathers, wood, and stone, including marble and agate and chunky knits. Painted furniture is chic. Innovative DIY types are upcycling pieces that may have gone unnoticed with fresh colors. This trend has emerged way beyond white, with bright turquoise, chartreuse, yellow and bubblegum pink reinventing even the plainest of jane furniture into desirable pieces.

More Notable Trends: Accessories, especially lamps, were designed with soft faceted angles, like cut gems with obscure shapes. Pendant lamps continued to grow in popularity, now in even more colors. Wallpaper, including graphic designs, geometrics, glamour prints and trompe l’oeil effects like marble were taking walls to new levels of captivation. Dimensional accent effects like beads, sequins, and raised inks were also popping up on walls and textiles for a heightened interest in decor. Typography and graphic branding design, like retro neon signs, ironic logos and street-smart snowboarding and skateboarding graffiti style words were featured on the runways and in decor, too.

Plants make people happy. Decorating with plants brings an invigorating touch of nature indoors, whether you live in an urban setting or the country. Year round, your plants add life and beauty to the room, which can make an oasis of vitality during long winter months. They also truly give your space a breath of fresh air. According to Live Science indoor plants actually purify the air in your home, absorbing VOCs and creating fresh oxygen. A great plant rounds out the room, like a living sculpture. Having healthy and beautiful green plants also gives you a sense of grown-up sophistication. There is an element of enchantment and personality that a live plant brings to the energy of your home. Also, we simply adore the decor addition of their containers! Choosing a lovely basket, ceramic pot, clay urn or ornate tray to display your plant in is a fun opportunity to add color, pattern and texture to the room. If you don’t think of yourself as having a green thumb, do not fret. There are plenty of plants that can thrive with very simple care. For some tried and true advice on container gardening indoors, watch this informative video from HGTV Enjoy these inspiring rooms below, each made more exceptional with the addition of beautiful green plants.
