From Sag Harbor to Montauk, Hamptons style can best be described as simple and classic with a touch of bohemian. Bright, white slipcovered furniture, natural accessories like jute rugs, shell lamps and driftwood mirrors mixed with a splash of vibrant modern art and vintage finds. Here are a few ways to bring a little bit of the Hamptons into your home.

Add a couple of Madeleine Weinrib block-printed pillows to give the room some contrasting color and pattern.
These nautical striped floor pillows were custom-made in jersey fabric by casual T-shirt maker Splendid. Throw a few on the floor in a bedroom for a great reading nook or in the family room where most of the late-night movie viewing is taking place. Buy the fabric and have a local seamstress or upholsterer make one or more custom versions for you.
These thick, colored, jute boucle rugs from West Elm are a nice neutral way to anchor a room.
Hollywood interior designer Marjorie Skouras makes a line of beautifully crafted chandeliers including this turquoise empire version. Try it in a traditional place like the dining room or hang it in a master bath to give it a little more sophistication.
