You might have to be a gazillionnaire to actually live in the Hamptons, but you can, with a bit of planning and a really excellent home stager, make your home look like the classic, clean, and breezy Long Island, New York, beach home so many of today’s home buyers are looking for. The beauty of Hamptons style is that it’s classic and rustic at the same time, a combination that oozes comfort and sophistication.
When your home is on the market for sale, it’s important to make it stand out from all the rest. Oh, yes. That’s always been important, but it’s even more critical in today’s electric housing market. Today, buyers begin their home search on the internet where sensational photographs help them narrow the field of possibilities. This means, if your home doesn’t photograph well, you may miss your chance to grab the attention of buyers. To make the most of the internet’s real estate showroom, you will need the help of a top-notch home styling company that has had lots and lots of practice at creating amazing images.
If your potential buyers fall into the largest pool of buyers, the millennials and the Generations X and Y, you’ll want to bring in a home stylist who has mastered the clean, uncomplicated yet elegant look of the Hamptons style. To these busy, upwardly mobile young business folk, coming home to a place that feels like an upscale vacation is irresistibly tempting.
This new field of buyers is poles apart from the last wave of home buyers, the baby boomers. They take their leisure time very seriously. They want to live life to the fullest without too many complications – and particularly not complications from a house or apartment. These new buyers want clean lines, crisp colours, wide open views, and a home that feels as free and easy as a summer at the beach.
The Hamptons style may look free and easy, but the combination of new, sleek furniture with rustic, old, and worn pieces takes more than a little experience and expertise. Neutral wall colours, accents in hemp and rattan, upholstery, as well as other fabrics, must all be assembled flawlessly. Otherwise, instead of looking like wealth and success, your beach house will look more like shabby chic, which couldn’t be more dissimilar.

In this race, you should have such an advantage in order to get out of the gate. Competitive edges in this business come from knowing the buyers, knowing what they want, and knowing how to deliver it with flawless imagery. These qualities come from years of experience in every corner of the industry.
