Five expert tips for nailing the Hamptons look

Back to news

Nailing the Hamptons look is easy with our simple. five-step guide.

Step 1: Weatherboard

The clean lines and period feel of weatherboard are essential for an authentic Hamptons home. Scyon Linea cladding delivers the perfect look but is easier to install and more durable than timber.

Step 2: Windows

Windows are a major feature of the Hamptons build as they let in natural light and add to the property’s street appeal.

Using Axent trim gives windows a thick, timber-look framing profile with the same durability you can expect from all Scyon products.

Step 3: Colour

The Hamptons palette of grey, dark blue or charcoal paired with white and neutrals is a much softer version of a monochrome scheme.

Stick to a simple, pared back selection of colours to create an elegant canvas for heritage features and details indoors and out.

Step 4: Country and coast

This look is ideal for coast or country homes but both these locations present exposure risks. Sycon materials have a high BAL rating, perform well in harsh coastal climates and resist attack from termites and other pests.

Step 5: Outdoor accents

Expansive verandas and balconies are an important feature for these breezy and elegant homes, designed to bring the outdoors in. No wonder they’re such a winner for our Australian climate and lifestyle.

These five steps to Hamptons success were inspired by style guru Natalee Bowen from Indah Island.
