Hamptons-style Aussie holiday destinations

The Hamptons look, inspired by and named after a group of seaside villages on New York's Long Island filled with estates and cottages from the 18th century, has had mass appeal for a few years now. Australia was quick to fall in love with this decorating style, maybe because we have so many incredible seaside destinations that work so naturally with this relaxed, breezy aesthetic. Given how much we know you love this look, we've found some of the most beautiful Hamptons-style escapes around Australia, so you can plan that winter holiday or steal some of these interior ideas for your own home.

A stone's throw from Noosa Heads, this Sunshine Beach rental boasts ocean views from nearly every room and is decked out with that distinctive Hamptons charm in every nook; think striped linen, nautical decor, and blue and white ceramics. With its own private boardwalk, it's perfect for a weekend away, or you can make the most of the discounted long stay with an extended holiday.

Only a 25-minute drive from Margaret River, where the Blackwood River meets the sea, this impressive three-level home boasts views of the bay, soaring ceilings with white wooden beams, ample lounging space and five bedrooms including a master suite on the top floor with its own private deck. Floral textiles, panelled walls and a dominant blue and white scheme make for a very authentic Hamptons look.

This former surf motel has had a stream of awards for its Anna Spiro-designed interiors, in-house spa and hatted restaurant Paper Daisy since it opened its doors in 2015. Each of its 21 rooms and two suites are individually designed with vibrant patterned wallpaper and arched bedheads, brass finishes and eclectic artwork. While the Halcyon is not entirely inspired by the Hamptons look in the strictest sense, there are still plenty of nautical elements and nods to the blue and white scheme.
