The fact that Shaker style is so versatile and simple to reinvent makes it the ultimate timeless choice. Its latest refresh focuses on a pared-back approach that takes it in a sleek new direction. To get the look, forego fiddly handles, forget fussy splashbacks and keep cornicing at bay. A cool white painted finish will prove quietly contemporary. In this new scheme from Neptune’s Autumn/ Winter 2017 collection, we love the way the depth of Teal emulsion throws simple Shaker cabinets into crisp contrast. Black metal cup handles and shelving lend a utilitarian steer without over-complicating matters.
