So like a lot of color trends, mint got its start in fashion and now it's making its way into the home and we're seeing it being used so many different ways on walls and accessories and throw pillows. It's a color that we really like because it's fun, it's fresh and it can just be used in a lot of different ways. The ones that tend to be more gray and blue work well on walls and on bigger pieces of furniture because they're not as out there and overwhelming. The mint green colors that tend to be a little bit more yellow and a little bit more saturated, those work well as accent pieces, small pieces of painted furniture, accessories, maybe a throw pillow or two because you're concentrating that really saturated color into a small sphere of your room. Mint green doesn't work as well with chocolate brown because you end up getting this kind of Peppermint Patty look that just doesn't work well. Add 1 or 2 pieces and you're on trend.
