Hamptons style we know and love is traditionally blue and white. Yet here, a black and white palette ups the sophistication while retaining the beachy feel. Key to this look is symmetrical styling: the shutters, armchairs, sofa, plants and pendant lights all sit perfectly positioned on either side of the room.
