What makes a Hampton style study room different to other styles, you might be wondering. The Hampton look is famous for being sophisticated, relaxed, airy and light – which are great essentials for boosting productivity as well as creativity. The Hampton style comes with a lot of whites whether it’s the wall paint, flooring or window frames. Combined with soft hues of grey, neutrals and blue, it creates a calm environment. The key point is to bring outdoor elements inside to enhance a relaxed vibe.
Furthermore, Hampton style furniture is designed to be pretty as well as practical, and is therefor ideal for a work space at home. Let’s dive into some study room design ideas.
Opt for a modern Hampton style study room look, if you prefer a clean and simple design. This style is also suitable for small niches and an open-plan living, in case you need to integrate your work space into the living room.
Key elements to this look are a subtle colour palette, almost monochrome, and simple yet refined furniture, like the Jasper study desk. Its sleek design with a black matt iron frame and wood grain veneer sits beautifully in the space, without taking up too much space. Two spacious drawers give plenty of storage for all your work utensils.
Consider pairing it with neutral coloured furnishings and decor. Especially, a Hampton office chair from natural fabric such as linen will add a beautiful texture to the look. To complete the modern study room look, work with a few single decor items with unusual shapes and structures to add interest to the space without overloading it.
The classic look of a Hampton style study room brings in all the casual, relaxing and timeless vibes.
Starting with a classic colour palette of either crisp white or natural greys as a base. When it comes to furniture, think of classic white finishing and the traditional cross-designed and moulded details. For example, the Croix white wooden desk. Elegant and simply designed, it is a key piece for a Hampton inspired work space. A deep work surface and two practical drawers will allow you to unfold your productivity.
You may pair it with a wicker or linen upholstered office chair to add some textures to the space. Simple colours, classic shapes and natural fibres will pull this look together into a calm oasis. Add a soft rug or indoor plants in a beautiful ceramic pot to create a soft appearance. For the ultimate Hamptons look add a matching bookcase to the space and fill it with your favourite books, rattan boxes to store smaller items and light scented candles to help you relax.
For an elegant Hampton style study room, consider using black and rich wooden furniture. It will evoke warmth and richness while keeping the overall look clean and modern. Pair it with large armchairs on the side, whether they set an accent through shape or style, to create an opulent look and feel.
Large decor items like mirrors, paintings or table lamps will add dimension to the desk and refine the elegant look. A well-curated selection of interior is the key to achieve the elegant look. Choose beautiful but also useful pieces when styling an elegant Hampton style study room.
