AUGUST 2019 - MINT
We’re right smack in the middle of summer, which means it’s getting hot out there! When we’re in need of a little refreshment, there’s one flavor we immediately think of: Mint! Whether it’s in an icy cocktail like a mojito or in a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream, the crisp, cooling essence of mint just screams summer.
This lighter shade of green has a cool blue tone to it, which gives it a more playful vibe than traditional greens, which feel more earthy. It’s a perfect way to bring some fun summer vibes into your home without feeling too over the top. Green is traditionally seen as a calming color and mint green is no different—adding mint into a bedroom or bathroom is a great way to create a soothing spa-like atmosphere.
Wondering how else you can work a little mint magic into your home? Create a retro-inspired kitchen by using a palette of mint and shades of powdery pink, creamy yellow, and beige. A more vibrant shade of mint would work beautifully as an accent wall in any room, especially when paired with crisp white. If you’re going for allover wall color, try a slightly more muted shade of mint with a creamy white tone to create a softer feeling in the space.
