How To Nail Hamptons Style With Bedside Tables
While there is no absolute rule for Hamptons styling, there are some notable features of furniture in this beautiful category. To achieve the look perfectly, look for these features:
- Whitewash – Whitewash is essentially paint mixed with water for a semi-opaque finish that allows the timber’s grain to show through – and show off!
- Natural materials – You’ll notice many tables use solid timber for its durability and stability.
- White as the hero – Because it sings ‘bright coastal charm’ and looks fresh all year round.
- Shaker style – With clean lines, shaker doors and drawers have a recessed panel and square edges, giving depth and texture to the table.
- Symmetry – You won’t find a lot of curves and arches in this style of table, rather straight, clean lines.
- Casual cool – Hamptons bedroom tables are the perfect balance of surfside living and contemporary elegance.

How To Style A Bedside Table For A Hamptons Look
When embracing a whole new interior style, it takes some time to feel confident about pairing your homewares and furniture. Take a look at our handy tips below for how to make your bedside table ooze all the Hamptons feels.
Stick with neutral colours (except for blue)
The Hamptons aesthetic is clean and crisp so don’t ruin the perfect piece of furniture by adding bright, dominating colours to the mix. It’s all about a relaxed sophistication – it’s cool without trying too hard! Off-whites, the gorgeous browns found in a rattan bedhead and greys are beautifully suited to Hamptons style, rather than stark whites. But the contrast to this muted palette is blues – which can range from subtle hints of duck-egg to rich navy.
Use different elements on each table
Matchy-matchy is a no-no when it comes to bedside tables, and there’s no need for clutter or forced styling. Hamptons is all about comfort and relaxation – after all, it is the playground of the rich and famous! Think books, coral vases and gorgeous lamps, each with its own texture, shape and size. Even pop a stylish laundry hamper nearby for extra beachy feels. Go eclectic without heading into ‘beach shack’ territory.
While Hamptons style is cosy and comfortable, everything needs a proper place. Every element of styling should be purposeful and well thought out, from your bedroom rug to your bedside carafe. The overall look should be vibrantly luxe and elegant, a place to unwind, relax and breathe in the sea air. Even if you simply close your eyes and imagine!
