HELLO HOUSE TO HOME BEAUTIFUL HAMPTONS!
In our latest House to Home Beautiful series, Home Beautiful teamed up with Sydney homeowners Robyn and Jonathon as they realised a long-held dream to create a forever home for their family, which includes Jasper, 12, Matilda, 10, and Amelie, three (all pictured, left). Rather than renovate their modest bungalow, the couple enlisted building design company Hall & Hart to create a custom home with a stunning Hamptons aesthetic. And the HB team was with them all the way! Next month, we reveal the stunning results with expert tips to inspire your own build, and simple ways to create a modern, Hamptons-style haven.
The undisputed beauty of building your own home from scratch is that you can truly make it your own. Whether you’ve longed for a spacious outdoor entertaining space, a statement bathroom or indulgent parents’ retreat, tackling a new build is the ideal opportunity to reflect how you want your home to look and, of course, your own style. There are myriad ways you can make this happen: you could work with an architect, get plans drawn up by a building designer or streamline the process by selecting a pre-designed home to be customised through a building company. We’ve spoken to the experts to help you navigate your new build from start to finish, whichever path you choose. “Just keep in mind that every build is unique and it’s often a long-term project over several years, so it’s okay to take your time,” advises Kristin Brookfield from the Housing Industry Association (HIA).
