There’s something about mint that I’ve always been drawn to. It’s a bold colour that can hold its own against warmer and cooler wood tones but also quite understated and classic too. I love the retro feel especially when used on cars and bikes…
When using in interiors it can be teamed with greys and blacks for a bold pop of colour. Mix it with a variety of textures such as natural rattan and high gloss finishes.
Mint comes in a variety of tones and shades varying from almost very dark forest green to a very cool ice blue as illustrated on the image below. It really comes alive when teamed with blonde woods like birch.
Some of the IKEA PS 2014 range has elements of mint again teamed with birch.
One of the most striking ways to use mint green is to use it in conjunction with a bold flamingo pink colour. This instantly gives the room and space a cute, playful, retro feel perfect for a girls bedroom that’s girly but not too girly.
Another inspiring colour combination is with red as highlighted in the image of the bathroom below. I love this as a masculine alternative to the pink image above and think I will use this image as a springboard for an idea of how I want to decorate my en-suite which needs some serious TLC…
A little mint can go a long way why not add a few small accessories to your home?
Or even make it the focus like this gorgeous mint SMEG fridge I want it sooooo bad!
