If you’re low-key struggling with the transition to fall and would like to continue to embrace all things light and airy in your home decor, you may want to take some cues from the Hamptons. Long Island’s southern coast is known for housing its affluent residents in beautiful beach houses when away from their New York City dwellings during the summer.
Pulling from classic coastal motifs like shells and an oceanic color palette while also upping the fancy factor within historic 18th-century architecture, the Hamptons have an aesthetic all their own. We spoke with Jennifer Mabley and Austin Handler from Mabley Handler Interior Design—a design firm serving the Hamptons, New York City, and Palm Beach—to provide advice for bringing the coastal coolness home, whether you’re in the middle of a bustling city or small town.
Hamptons houses certainly bring elements of the beach inside, from surfboards and conch shells to high ceilings and hydrangeas. But according to Handler, Hamptons-style homes take the classic coastal look we know and love to the next level.
“Clients with even the most casual beach cottage still expect their Hamptons home to have a certain level of design and sophistication,” he says. “Gone are the days of simple white slipcovers and bowls of seashells, and that’s a good thing."
Though there isn’t just one signature Hamptons aesthetic, the proximity of these homes to New York City plays a role in upping the design ante—simple seaside views aren’t enough. The style spotlights clean lines, minimalist furniture, and classic color schemes of blues, whites, and woods. Simplistically stunning and cozy yet classy, these interiors provide the perfect summer getaway.

You walk into a Home Depot, visit The Sill online, or stroll through your local plant store and find what you consider the perfect plant for your home. Maybe you’ve done the research to find out just how much sunlight and water it will need, or perhaps you're just going off of how you feel at the moment.
We don’t mean to cause alarm, but the holiday season is almost officially upon us. While it’s always important to live in the moment and enjoy the current season, with busy lives and busier schedules, now is the ideal time to start some prep for the holidays.
The holiday party has finally come to an end and it's time to clean up. To efficiently help you tidy up your home, we asked some experts for their best tips to combat post-holiday messes without the stress. From setting up garbage bins in high-traffic areas to using a cleaning caddy as you tackle each room, your home will return to its normal (and cleaner) state.
During the holidays, it's important to ensure your home is in its best condition since you'll be having family and guests over the majority of the season (especially if you're hosting). Although it may be too late for a full home renovation project, you can still make small updates to spruce up your space, so it looks new and put-together for all season long.
The weather is cooling quickly, but there’s still time to prepare your home for the first frost. From HVAC mishaps to frozen pipes, a lot can go wrong in the winter months, costing you and your family money, time, and stress.
When the cold weather hits, we crave the comfort of a toasty, warm space. But the warmth we’re talking about isn’t from stepping out of the icy wind. It’s the feeling you get when you’re enveloped by a welcoming space—an unmistakable but hard-to-put-your-finger-on sense of comfort.
With the arrival of warm weather, outdoor dining becomes a delightful and practical option for meals with family and friends. To make the most of your outdoor space and create the ultimate outdoor dining experience, consider these tips for setting up a beautiful, functional, and inviting area.
You likely have your list of go-to retailers to turn to when it comes to shopping for holiday decor, but we have a few more resources for you to add to your list. Make note that many stores have fantastic holiday offerings in the kids' section, which happen to be quite chic for adult spaces, too—seriously, these picks are more than worth a look.
When decorating for the holidays, it can be tempting to buy new decorations to deck out your home only for them to be thrown out the year after because they no longer fit your personal tastes. We asked pros to share their favorite budget-friendly holiday decorating tips, so you can still have a festive home for way less.
Vacuum cleaners may seem like magic, but they're not designed to do it all. Most standard vacuums excel at cleaning up everyday dirt including dust, cobwebs, and crumbs, but they struggle against bigger messes that could clog their critical inner workings.
Trends come and trends go, and some of them involve “outdoor art” using trees and plants. One new trend is called yarn bombing. This involves using knitted or crocheted yarn to “decorate” outdoor structures, like lamp posts, benches and… trees. Are you wondering whether yarn bombing trees is detrimental? Read on for more information.
Composting can seem like a minefield. Do you compost perennial weeds, what type of bin do you use, how often should you turn, and what composting method to try? These are just some of the common questions we’re asked. Many myths surround the process. It’s easy to think bagged and homemade compost are the same thing. But bagged compost has been commercially treated, and can contain peat, whereas your own home compost will be made up of a variety of traceable items. It will feel and look quite different from what you buy at the shops – but will be just as good, if not better.
