Combine Antiqued Brass 

with earthy tones of dusky red or salmon pink

Reeded Cupboard Knob

Larder Drawer Pull

Small Napier Cupboard Knob

Emma says:

"A favourite colour of mine, Red Ochre with antiqued brass is a wonderfully traditional pairing, creating a homely, traditional look. This red is not bright, but deep and earthy, so it doesn't dominate a space. It was often used in old country kitchens. The antique brass compliments it beautifully, bringing out the warmth in the shade and making sure the traditional country kitchen look is right up to date. "

Pair Polished Lacquer

with smoky shades of woodland green

30mm Forged Ball

Schoolhouse Drawer Pull

Large Napier Cupboard Knob

Emma says:

"Create a truly heritage look by using Drab Green with your Polished Lacquer finish. Green is always a popular choice for kitchens and this shade works because it's neither too pale, or too dark. It is a shade of green that is extremely versatile and easy to live with, no matter what the age of your property. Use it all over (including walls) in a pantry with wooden worktops for a really heritage look, or on cabinetry for a brighter, more modern country kitchen feel. "

Match Matt Black 

with creamy whites & neutrals

Cook's Drawer Pull

Suffolk Cupboard Pull Handle

Small Turkish Knot Handle

Emma says:

"This pairing is perfect for a wonderfully fresh kitchen space. I love this white because it's warm and strong enough to stand alone as a cabinetry colour. The addition of matt black for the cupboard knobs and handles can create a traditional, or modern monochrome style. Use this pairing with wood in a kitchen to give it a warmer, more rustic feel, or combine it with a white or black counter top for more modern, minimalist, monochrome style."

"Yellow kitchens are very on trend at the moment, and this colour is warm and bold whilst staying earthy. The heritage copper handles complement the warmth of this optimistic shade to bring it all together beautifully."

Contrast our silvery Nickel

with moody blues & ocean greens

Schoolhouse Drawer Pull

Emma says:

"This is a pairing equally at home in a modern country farmhouse kitchen as an  on-trend London apartment. Vert De Mer is a rich, timeless blue that is beautifully emphasized by the freshness of the Nickel finish in this scheme. Pair with limestone floors for a country feel or quartz or marble worktops for a modern touch."
