So many times the fashion industry seems to pave the way for the design industry to follow next. As such, you may have noticed that hints of mint green have been popping about in outfits of several trending fashionistas. However, it seems that mint green has already began to transcend its way into interiors and home decor. Thus, today I’d like to share with you some inspiring imagery with minty tones that give such a delightful spring like vibe to interiors.
Although I’m not very much into pastel hues, I have to admit that the color of mint brings a smile to my face. It is a color that makes me feel good. It has a “zen” kind of quality to it. And as a designer, I happen to think that it is a hue that one can work a lot easier with as opposed to say orange hues.
It can easily be paired with blues, deep saturated greens, and reddish hues just to mention some. Brass, chrome and copper metal accents will look equally great with any mint hue. But what makes mint green a lovely color to work with, is its ability to stand on its own if need be or compliment any other color scheme as a mere secondary accent. And since pastels are the next best thing in home decor, I thought it would be nice to start off with some mints.
Unlike popular belief, there are no limits in using mint green accents. It is a color that can gracefully work in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining and/or living rooms to name a few. Is it a neutral color? No, but if its tone is soft enough then it won’t give you a hard time and you’ll be able to work with it just like any beige, grey and/or off-white neutral hue combination. Its undertones are not going to be an issue.
Therefore, I sincerely hope I got your inspiration juices flowing and perhaps managed to help you see mint under a new light. Please let me know your thoughts on this. By the way, doesn’t this color psyche you for spring’s coming? It certainly has me psyched up…
