Let us introduce you to the newest additions to our colour collection- Carbon, a deep and dramatic off-black, and Regiment, a calming, earthy green tone.


At Second Nature, we strive to keep up with changing styles, offering our own timeless take on the current trends. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce two new additions to our colour collection- Regiment and Carbon.

A sophisticated, muted green that offers an accent colour without being too overwhelming, Regiment’s earthy undertones work great with on-trend accent metallics, such as brass.

Carbon is our unique approach to the off-black trend that’s taking the kitchen design world by storm. The colour works beautifully as a stand alone statement across an entire kitchen, or equally well when mixed with lighter tones for a contrasting finish- it’s the perfect way to add drama and atmosphere with a softer edge.

To celebrate these two new arrivals, we’re sharing a few of the many ways you could style each colour, with a range of our favourite kitchen accessory picks to pull together an exciting kitchen look.

Regiment- Look 1

A great way to complement the earthy tones of Regiment is to bring in natural elements, with greenery and wooden textures to bring a nature-inspired look together. We’ve also paired a Porter door with a Knurled Matt Black handle, which allows for black, metal accessories to add an industrial edge to the otherwise soft kitchen.
