A Hampton home for you. The Rochedale.


May 12, 2020 6min read

The classic Hampton home, you know and love.

It’s a fact, the Hampton styled home has officially taken Australia by storm and one of the newest locations to see this style come to life is at our Rochedale home at Rathdowne estate.

This dreamy home combines the love of this timeless style with the practicality that our new home-buyers want.

 

The Façade – Maximum street appeal

 

From the outside the asymmetrical Providence façade shines, with detailed features such as weatherboard cladding, gabled roofs, colonial bar windows and a welcoming front door. The classic white on white look with dark grey trims have been utilised to create an eye catching contract to give the home maximum street appeal.

 

“The exterior is inspired by the architectural Hampton style, but with an Australian twist”

The Lounge – Welcoming and inviting

 

Welcoming, the front lounge puts its best step forward to create that classic Hamptons look. The warm fireplace paired with soft sheers diffuse the light to give this room a charming feel.

The Hamptons style takes much inspiration from coastal elements, and this is demonstrated in the first glimpse of the interior of The Rochedale. The statement shell pendent light and costal artwork and décor give a nod to this classic style. Relaxed white couches are framed in the room through the clever use of dado panelling to the feature walls.

The Bedroom – A relaxing retreat

 

This is where a sense of peace and calm is imperative, and where the Hampton style really shines. Paired white timber bedside tables sit on either side of the upholstered bed, each with a ceramic table lamp with intricate detailing perfectly frames the room. The white on white look continues with the layering of linen and pillows, but a bright blue throw gives this room a pop. This look is all brought together with a mint coloured feature walls which gives the room a whimsical feel.

 

"The Hamptons remains one of our most popular home styles - relaxed, timeless and tranquil"

The Kitchen – A timeless beauty

 

The sprawling Rochedale kitchen is situated right by the dining and family area, which is able to bring the whole home together in harmony. Understated but sophisticated, this hub shows a depth which is difficult to achieve with the white on white colour palette.

Light marble-look benchtops add a touch of luxury with the thick stone on the island bench giving it a wow factor it deserves. The traditional Hampton style shaker profile cabinetry is used to perfection, with small ornate handles in satin nickel. Simple textured subway tiles laid in herringbone is a simple way to add another level of complexity to this kitchen.

The Family – Tranquil but functional

 

Soft and relaxing, the family room promotes an element of calmness, much needed for the busy modern family. Located centrally, this room meets the needs of the whole family. Coastal elements continue, with soft ocean blue cushions and white colour palette. Raw timber furniture is able to give depth without compromising on its airy feel.
