My Hamptons Style Bathroom

by

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely words and support during our move to the new house. I am still pinching myself that we are finally in! In all, the process has been extremely rewarding. So many decisions involved (my grey hairs are appearing with a vengeance!) but I am already missing my fortnightly catch ups with the builder.

I wrote a post last year for Perini Tiles about How To Create a Hamptons Style Bathroom.  So you know that I practice what I preach, I thought I would share some photos of our ensuite and how I used my tips from this blogpost to get My Hamptons Style Bathroom.

1. Subway Tiles

The white subway tiles were an easy choice for the bathroom walls. They are relatively inexpensive and create a clean, classic look. We didn’t tile the entire way to the (3.3m) ceiling but added a white capping tile about 3/4 of the way.

Mr Gallerie B finally got his rain shower.

2. Marble

To create an authentic Hamptons bathroom you would use marble but we were on a tight budget. I love these ‘faux’ marble tiles from Perini Tiles. They have the right white and grey tones that I was after.

I had them laid in a herringbone pattern with a border tile around the perimeter.

3. Vanity

When designing the vanity as well as the aesthetic, I considered our storage needs. I included the inset cupboards with shelving for bottles and the drawers for makeup, brushes etc. Anything to make the morning routine easy! The shaker profile doors and drawers were an easy choice. The joinery colour also differentiates this room from the other wet rooms in the house.

I love the lucite handles and chrome knobs from Restoration Hardware.

4. Sconce Lighting

The sconce lights provide a ‘hotel’ feel. They also give a lovely ambience at night (we have recessed LED downlights for task lighting).

I loved the opportunity to introduce some patterned fabric into the space.

5. Wall Panelling

Our ensuite is not nearly as large as some of the ‘real’ Hamptons ones where wall panelling is a design feature. Tiling the walls was a more realistic option.

6. Neutral Colours

I opted for a soothing, classic grey and white palette. For a bit of colour pink roses in a small vase do the trick.

7. Tapware

I chose more traditional polished chrome wall mounted tapware, with white porcelain levers.

Although I’m a long way from the Hamptons, my ensuite makes me feel a tiny bit closer!

    • Thank you! The tiles were a great find and we have used them on the flooring for all the wet rooms. I think the tiler was definitely sick of herringbone patterns by the end!! x

      • Hi Belinda, can you help me with the joinery colour you used in your bathroom and the wall colour by any chance ? I also was wondering it looks like a different grout in the tile. Any help greatly appreciated 🙂 Looks beautiful as well

  1. Just beautiful and so timeless! Hope we get a full house tour when you are all settled in? Would love to see the final result.

  2. Hi Belinda. Do the sconces come from Restoration Hardware too? Do you have to rewire American light fittings for installation in Australia? Thanks!

    • Hi Rose, yes, the sconces are from Restoration Hardware. We carried 7 of them home in our luggage! The electrician didn’t need to rewire them fully and said it wasn’t too tricky. I did need to buy special globes though for them. Hope this helps! x

  3. Hi Belinda
    Do you have any further details available on the floor tile please? I live in Sydney so can’t visit Perrini Tiles to view their samples in person. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Annabel. It is the Del Marmo range on the Perini website. It’s a satin porcelain that I had laid in a herringbone format. Hope this helps. x
