Color+Inspiration: Mint

Oh well, I showed you my new crush and now would be the perfect moment to write about the color that inspires me today and that will be mint color! I’ve seen a lot of mint in blogland lately and I must admit, only looking at the color makes me feel its freshness and the aromatic scent! Being a color between apple green, lime, aqua (and maybe more) mint comes in different shades: mint green, mint gray, mint blue, so I searched for inspirational pictures that are about all these shades (don’t be surprised if you see quite different mint color). Mint also turns to be a  calming color, perfect for a kitchen, dining room, nursery – oh well, it’d be great in every room, I guess! I hope you like the inspiration I found:

And what about painting your home’s façade in mint color? Looks beautiful, huh?

Look at how mint color can be combined with lots of other colors such as blue, orange, pink  and white! It’s definitely also a neutral color and I like this idea so much! It means I can use it in my future bathroom, maybe…

What are your thoughts about mint? Would you paint a room in mint?

    It’s lovely color,so fresh. My husband had this color in his old boys room for years. I remember my reaction first time I saw it,I said it was ugly…but then I realized,it’s not the color,but everything…the color was wrong for the room style,and the accessories.

    It’s sort of weird a boys’ room in mint color, so I understand what you mean.
