Hampton style, with its breezy elegance and timeless charm, has been captivating homeowners for decades. Originating from the coastal retreats of Long Island, New York, this interior design aesthetic has transcended boundaries, finding its way into homes across continents. What makes Hampton style so alluring? It's a seamless blend of classic colonial elements with modern touches, creating spaces that are both sophisticated and inviting.

Imagine clean lines, neutral colour palettes, and an abundance of natural light flooding through large windows. Add to that the warmth of shiplap wall panelling, plush furnishings, and subtle nods to coastal living, and you have the quintessential Hampton interior. But beyond the visual appeal, Hampton style embodies a lifestyle – one that exudes relaxation, comfort, and effortless elegance.

Sarah, the curator behind a popular home Instagram account @inside_number_5_, embarked on a journey to transform her English countryside abode into a sanctuary of Hampton-inspired bliss. Her project, a master bedroom extension above the existing garage, became a canvas for her creative vision.

"We wanted to emphasise the Colonial style the home already had," Sarah shared, reflecting on the inspiration behind her renovation. From cosy Cotswolds hotels to Mediterranean pottery, Sarah drew inspiration from her travels, weaving together elements of different cultures into her home. "I find inspiration everywhere," she shared, underscoring the eclectic nature of her design process.

Two standout feature of Sarah's renovation was the addition of the rolling ladder,  "The ladder was a must-have," Sarah emphasised, noting its dual role as a statement piece and a space-saving solution. Working closely with James, Sarah ensured that her wardrobe design not only maximised storage but also maintained a cohesive aesthetic. "We tried to maximise the storage solutions while keeping the aesthetics," James explained, highlighting their commitment to both form and function.

Choosing the right ladder was pivotal, and Sarah found her solution with us the Library Ladder Company. "I knew they would be our go-to," she affirmed, citing the our reputation for quality and craftsmanship.

"The smoothness of running along the guide and floor. It’s so simple but the fittings also feel good quality," James remarked, expressing his satisfaction with the ladder and ladder system.

The second was the incorporation of ribbed detailing on her wardrobes, a decision influenced by her collaboration with James, renowned for his expertise in luxury custom cabinetry at James Lescott Bespoke. "The ribbed detailing was actually James's idea," Sarah disclosed, showcasing the collaborative spirit that defined her project.

In the end, Sarah's master bedroom became more than just a space; it was a testament to the power of collaboration and creativity. From Pinterest boards to Instagram feeds, from design concepts to real-life transformations, her journey encapsulated the essence of Hampton style – a harmonious fusion of beauty and functionality, tailored to fit her unique vision.

As admirers of Sarah's design, we can't help but be enamoured by the clean lines, the cosy yet sophisticated ambiance, and the seamless integration of traditional and modern elements. The incorporation of the rolling ladder not only adds a touch of elegance but also speaks to the practicality and ingenuity of the design. It's a space where comfort meets luxury, where every detail tells a story, and where Hampton style reigns supreme.

And let's not forget about the shiplapped ceiling – a hallmark of Hampton interiors. The crisp white planks evoke a sense of seaside living, adding texture and interest to the room while maintaining an airy, open feel. It's a subtle yet impactful detail that elevates the space, embodying the quintessential Hampton aesthetic.

In the world of interior design, where trends come and go, Hampton style endures, timeless and captivating. And as homeowners like Sarah continue to infuse their spaces with its signature charm, the allure of Hampton style remains as irresistible as ever.
