Natalee Bowen is an Interior Designer, builder, TV presenter, judge, writer and a James Hardie Brand Ambassador. She is a renowned Hamptons Expert in Australia and internationally, with over 20 years in the industry. Natalee is the Principal Designer of Indah Island, a comprehensive design and consultation service. Together with Natalee, James Hardie launched the Hamptons look. Both Natalee and James Hardie have been at the forefront of educating homeowners on how they can achieve the Hamptons look. Her invaluable expertise has been used in multiple James Hardie look books and in particular, the Hamptons Look Book. It features the inspiration and design hallmarks to make the perfect Hamptons home and how the popular style has evolved into Traditional, Contemporary and Australian. For her renovation of a Toodyay farmhouse into a stunning Hamptons estate, Natalee used Linea™ Weatherboard, Axon™ Cladding and Hardie™ Groove Lining to complete the timeless style. The property has been in the Bowen family for five generations and has been transformed into an Australian Hamptons legacy, while embodying those who inspired it. Natalee has chosen cladding products by James Hardie for her upcoming projects with TV shows including Renovate or Rebuild and Open Homes TV, as well as her numerous other building projects.
What does it take to create a truly inspiring Hamptons-style home – is it the weatherboards, the finishes, or the location itself? According to Natalee Bowen, the award-winning designer behind Indah Island, there are many aspects of a quintessential Hamptons home that are often overlooked.
Natalee Bowen is arguably Australia’s foremost Hamptons expert. Her business Indah Island has her flying around Australia, and often the globe, consulting on Hamptons renovations and new builds. The expectation on her new renovation is that it will raise the bar beyond her last home. A hard act to follow.
Our Hamptons Look Book provides design inspiration and highlights different hallmarks to achieve the Hamptons home of your dreams.
