How to Create a Luxe Hamptons Entryway

by Rustic Charm

The classic Hamptons style is still very much alive and happening, and due to its timelessness, we don’t see it going anywhere soon. Drawing influences from the wealthy beach suburb of the same name just north of New York, the ever-popular Hamptons style exudes sophistication, simplicity and practicality. Think upholstered armchairs in rich fabrics combined with the warmth of natural wood and rattan alongside beautifully styled sideboards for an effortlessly calm coastal vibe.


While most of the home may seem relatively straightforward to design in Hamptons style (for example shaker cabinets, lots of white, navy and beige tones throughout), entryways, foyers or hallways, often get overlooked. Yet entryway styling is so important to get right, as it is what invites guests into your home, and creates that all-important first impression. If you have an entryway begging for an update, here are some fool proof Hamptons pieces you can consider to ensure you achieve the perfect Hamptons look.

Mirrors bring light and illusion of space into an entryway, and a beautiful unique mirror can add that touch of sophistication that the Hamptons style is so renown for. One of the most coveted Hamptons mirrors is the arched mirror, with its soft curve and beautifully symmetrical frame shapes. For something a little different, experiment with different shaped mirrors that feature a rattan trim to add warmth to your space.

Quintessentially Hamptons, a comfy bench to take a load off and remove shoes at the entryway is the perfect practical Hamptons furniture item that guests too will love. Crisp white and warm or nude tones are the order of the day for entryway styling to keep the space fresh, inviting and not too focused on the bench.

Console or Hall Stand

Perfectly styled Pinterest-worthy vignettes featuring books, a tray, candles, vases, flowers and other treasures sings “Hamptons” like nothing else. And, it’s absolutely achievable — if you have a beautiful console or hall stand to style, of course. The classic fresh white console or hall stand is a great place to start for entryway styling, but don’t be scared of experimenting with other finishes in deeper colours or textural elements — think navy or cane trims to mix it up. Then, vignette away to your heart’s content!

Plush Rug

Not only does a beautiful rug look the part and help soften the noise of stark wood or tiled floors, experiencing something sumptuous underfoot adds to that Hamptons experience. The shape and size of your entryway will dictate your rug selection, so whether it’s a hall runner, round jute or luxurious wool rug, make sure you measure up correctly and consider other elements like furniture.

Synonymous with the sophistication of Hamptons, luxe lighting should never be underestimated when it comes to entryway styling. If you’re going all out, a chandelier is top of the list, while a simple, understated table lamp or sconce can still add a touch of elegance and warmth.
