Coastal Design Inspiration: Hamptons Poolside Cabana

What Is A Pool House?

A pool house provides a private space near the pool for extra storage and where guests can shower, change in and out of swimsuits, relax, and/or use the bathroom. If a poolhouse is big enough then it can have a lounge area with mini kitchens to entertain and enjoy cold beverages by the pool. Most pool houses are stocked with pool toys and supplies such as extra towels, umbrellas, pool floats, pool equipment, and cleaning supplies.

Inside The Southhamptons Pool House

Thomas Loof

The owners of the home call their pool house the “entertaining barn.” The purpose was to create a fun and vibrant environment for entertaining friends and family. The walls are made of cypress wall paneling. It almost looks like white shiplap siding that most people use if they want a coastal vibe. However, in different lighting, the light wood coloring warms up the space. The fireplace is covered in Atlantic lava stone to complement the blue tones in the room. Instead of sticking with a nautical blue and white color scheme. Hagan decided to add pops of yellow and pink hues for a playful vibe. The painting is by Bill Tansey. The armchairs are from Lucca Antiques and then covered in a Katie Leede & Company fabric.

The Coastal Bathroom Design

Thomas Loof

A poolside cabana needs a bathroom. So this Hamptons oasis has a beautifully designed powder room for its guests. This photo of the bathroom gives a better view of the color of the cypress paneling. The bathroom features blue-and-white tile flooring. There are chrome finishes throughout the space. And there’s even a large basket outside of the bathroom filled with beach towels. A cute and decorative way to store towels.

A Hamptons Backyard Oasis

The backyard is serene! The grand swimming pool is perfect for hosting summer parties. There is plenty of space for guests to lounge and mingle. The pool area is surrounded by hedges for maximum privacy.

Bonus Room: The Flower Room

This room isn’t a part of the poolhouse, but I thought it was a unique room idea for people who love to garden. The flower room was a concern for the owners since the wife enjoys arranging flowers from her garden. The room features Roman and Williams pendants and Thomas Hayes counter stools.

Where Are The Hamptons?

The Hamptons are located on eastern Long Island’s South Fork. It’s a collection of small seaside communities that attracts wealthy beach lovers and Hollywood A-listers. Who doesn’t want to enjoy a secluded holiday house with water views and sweeping acres of privacy?
