IN THE NAVY
KITCHEN DESIGN | R+L ARCHITECTS REESLEE.CO.UK; @RLARCHITECTS
The look Moody navy is a softer alternative to black, but still has a sense of drama. Here, the colour is an absolute showstopper, but that could have something to do with those gorgeous copper handles. Navy and copper (or brass) are a match made in heaven.
Try it if You’re on a budget. The cabinetry frame is from Ikea, freeing up funds for bespoke doors, handles and worktops.
How to get it right See how swatches look in different lights in the day and evening. A dark colour might not be right for your space. Metallic handles look better in matte, as fingerprints won’t show up.
Light and shade The quartz worktop and Circus copper handles from Superfront balance out the dark navy cabinetry.
