For the Love of Color: Mint Green

Today is all about mint green. I was so inspired when I saw this bedroom with bright mint walls that I began searching for everything mint green. I’m not a stranger to the color. I have a feature wall in my office / living room that is painted a shade of mint. Something about the color instantly calms me. I’m pretty sure everyone can benefit from a splash of it here and there.

What I also love about mint green is that while it’s certainly trending now, in some ways, it’s a classic. It has come back time and time again. Remember the mint green kitchen items of the 1950s?

In case you’re hesitant to wrap a room in mint, I have found some fun accessories that will allow you to try the color in smaller doses. From chairs to sumo wrestler statues (Yes, I went there.), you’ll be loving this soothing hue in no time.

runway to color palette: feeling fresh

Paul & Joe did a fantastic job creating a beautiful color palette using unexpected colors in this collection.  Nothing says spring and summer like a minty fresh green paired with a stylish coral.  This palette would look lovely in a living space.  Here’s the look:

 

On the walls: Extra White 7006 will allow all of those pretty colors to pop.

Color Inspiration:  Skirt flower stems
For an accent wall or inside shelving, go bold with Otter 6041.

Color Inspiration: Sweater
For an upholstered piece such as your sofa, try a neutral grey like Amazing Grey 7044.

Color Inspiration: Belt
Create a modern accent table by painting it in Spirited Green 6932.

Color Inspiration: Skirt Flowers
Throw-pillows and ceramics in a version of this Ravishing Coral 6612 would be eye catching.

Bonus- Color Inspiration: Skirt
Verbena 6581 and Coastal Plain 6192 would be a great addition used in accessories such as a blanket, candles or lamp base.
