The Hamptons is a beautiful seaside community in Long Island, New York where celebrities spend summer holidays.
Hamptons style houses are on-trend in Australia. Their luxurious, relaxed charm has a holiday feel and suits our climate and outdoor lifestyle. It’s a style that is reminiscent of Queenslander homes.
Christian will explain how to make your home the best in the street. It is all about choosing the right roof, cladding and veranda styles, details and colours to pull off a breathtaking Hamptons look. He’ll present examples by Hamptons expert Natalie Bowen and Three Birds Renovations as well as Australia’s most authentic Hamptons home. Come along and be inspired.
Whether we live in a Queenslander or a super modern home, winter or summer, we’re always battling with getting the temperature right in our homes. This costs a fortune and is not always comfortable.

What a fantastic resource with everything for our kitchen renovation under one roof. We couldn't have done it without you, and will definitely be back when we tackle the bathrooms next.
I have made a point of attending a wide range of your seminars and have to say that the quality of the presenters, their expertise and inspiration all has flown through in our building project.
We couldn't be happier with our new home, and highly recommend that anyone building or renovating should visit your centre and attend those excellent seminars.
During our building project we must have visited your centre a dozen times or more. Not only is the quality of the showrooms and displays excellent but every time we came back there was something new.
What's more is the absolute convenience of the experience and with free entry and parking you will certainly see us again.
