19 Aug Hamptons Luxury Apartments – Harbor’s Edge
The row of homes along the world-famous stretch of beach known as the Hamptons in New York are also well-known for their very specific interior design trends. Beach elements like sand, water and expansive light have a strong presence in the design and décor of those homes. Those elements translate well to the new Hamptons luxury apartments, the Harbor’s Edge, which are finally available after years of delays.
The Harbor’s Edge development was designed with the intent of creating luxurious penthouses that captured the elegance of the waterfront properties and initially broke ground in 2006. Shortly after, however, construction was halted as the world dealt with the Global Financial Crisis. Finally, under new ownership in 2013, construction resumed and was finally completed in 2014. The delays did ramp up anticipation for the development and the designers have delivered on that anticipation.
Each penthouse holds the spirit of the Hamptons, with rooms oriented towards the water to provide owners with an astounding view of the sea at sunset. Each living room holds a floor-to-ceiling window with corresponding doors on each side of the glass to allow the natural light to fill the residence.
The rest of the penthouse’s décor and furnishings incorporate Hamptons design trends and toned-down nautical themes. The colour, for example, is the not the classic white that the Hamptons are best known for but, instead, skews towards a more crème tone. The walls, chairs, coffee tables and most of the décor holds a crème colour, which compliments the steady stream of natural light found in the residence.
Breaking up the crème tone, nautical colours accent the interior. Splashes of blue can be found throughout the residence in throw pillows and other decorations. There are also abstract ocean paintings that compliment the extraordinary view of the ocean.
The view is the development’s biggest amenity and the owners know it. On the Harbor’s Edge website, they write, “The passing of boats and hyper-color sunsets serve as the backdrop for life.” The Hamptons provide a very unique and serene experience for residents and the Harbor’s Edge continues that tradition.
