Stylish, Happy Homes with Style My Home

Happiness is an inside job. Carlie Wacker meets the team that make it their life’s stylish work to create Hamptons-inspired interiors that will have you living your happiest life. 

Humans that are happy at home are happy in life and that is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and the people around us. 

The joy of walking into your home and feeling a sense of calm and relaxation is something that drives the team at Style My Home Hamptons-Inspired Interiors.  

Caroline May started Style My Home nine years ago when she was renovating and furnishing her home in the northern beaches in Sydney. She found it challenging to source unique furniture, so she imported a container full of her favourite pieces from overseas. 

When word got out, the people came knocking and a beautiful business was born which now boasts four stores around Australia in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Noosa. 

Caroline designs and imports all the furniture and décor; she and her talented team provide in-home styling and will soon launch a staging service.

Style My Home is highly respected for providing Hamptons-Inspired interior design services with long-time Style My Home stylist Sammi McCauley saying that they love making homes a beautiful place and space to enjoy. 

“We are all spending more time at home, so our goal is to create a space that people wake up to and never want to leave,” she says. 

“Hamptons styling offers that resort feel – a relaxed calming oasis. 

“Within the Hamptons aesthetic is modern farmhouse, coastal and classic styles so there are ways to personalise this to suit the client and the home.” 

The in-home styling service is perfect for people who have bought a new house, renovating or just need help finding and defining their own unique style.

“The feedback I hear a lot from my clients is how fun and stress-free the experience is,” says Sammi. “We also have customers regularly asking if we could stage their home to sell so watch this space.

“Our in-home styling packages are suitable for any size home, affordable and redeemable.”

“The most common mistake I witness is when the design elements don’t work cohesively together, or when clients choose furniture or rugs in the incorrect proportions. These mistakes can be costly and stressful.

“Our number one aim is for our clients to love their space. It’s the reason our designers do what they do. 

“Your space should not only look amazing, but it should also reflect your personality and style; and it should function in a way that works with how you want to live your life.”

The team’s latest in-home styling project ‘Atrium House’ at Benowa Waters on the Gold Coast is a stunning example of what Style My Home can do so I ask Sammi how they approach a client brief.

“We like to collaborate with all our clients, take them on an exciting design journey,” she says. 

“It’s very important as a designer to listen to the client’s needs. While designing spaces like Atrium House, it was extremely important to understand the home design and style but also research the environment and lifestyle of the homeowners.

“This project screamed ‘Modern Resort Hamptons’ so we planned each space carefully, taking full advantage of the scale of the home.

“Our furniture and homewares were made for this project, elevating the space to create the modern Hamptons oasis we were aiming for.

“The install went seamlessly. It’s a beautiful home, full of warmth, with lots of light and the scale of it made it a grand experience. 

“The beautiful details within the interior took our styling to the next level. It’s a home you visit and never want to leave.” 

Happy client, happy stylist – I would say that is mission accomplished. 


Here are Sammi’s tips to help you discover your own personal style:

1. Create a pinterest board – this will help you get inspired, there are so many wonderful ideas to tap into 

2. Design magazines – rip pages out and create a vision board, get creative with it 

3. Instagram – exploring is key

4. Design trips – head out shopping and see what excites you 

5. Create a moodboard – this will help you keep on track with your vision.
