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.

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.
