While pastel colors may have been most popular in the ’50s, these light airy shades are making their way back into home decor and are fully on trend. If you are considering using pastel colors in your interior, one color that may have popped into your mind was most likely: mint green. Mint green is a beautiful pastel shade that is a mix of blue and green. It is often referred to as a serene color that is just as refreshing as a breath mint.
Perhaps, you are interested in incorporating mint green into your design but do not know where to start. Mint green has a realm of possibilities and today, we are going to focus on a few of our favorite design elements that feature this beautiful pastel. Let’s take a look!
New Take on a Classic
Accent walls are a popular trend in home decor. If you are not ready to dedicate an entire wall to this soft color, you can try the shade out on just a section of the wall. Using mint green in such an unexpected manner will immediately capture attention. Plus, you will not have to change up your current furniture or decor if the color is subtly incorporated on an accent wall. By using it on a section, whether it be stripes or half of the wall, you can get a taste for this pastel without fully committing.
If you love the look of pastels, perhaps you may want to incorporate several shades throughout the space. Luckily, pastels are soft and airy, so they rarely interfere with one another or compete for attention. Additionally, you can capitalize on the fact that you are incorporating several pastel colors in one space and utilize a Scandinavian design which often favors neutrals and pastel colors.
Creative Kitchen Appliances
For a retro-inspired look, incorporate mint green kitchen appliances. Try a bold mint-colored refrigerator and dress your countertops with matching appliances like a mint-colored toaster and microwave. The pops of color will help add a chic style to the space without overwhelming the design.
Instead of installing new kitchen cabinets, consider giving them a fresh coat of paint and a brand new look. In an all-white kitchen, mint, green cabinets will stand out by adding style and flair. Or perhaps, you want to incorporate other pastels colors with the mint into a neutral-tone kitchen. The design options are endless.
Fully-Focused on Furniture
When purchasing furniture, many people tend to select a neutral furnishing because it can blend well with different design schemes. Mint Green furniture such as a love seat or ottoman will harmonize with a variety of colors and shades. If you are not interested in purchasing a new couch, try a tufted mint colored ottoman instead. By adding simple decor pieces with the color mint, you can change up your design without changing too much.
My Oh My, Metallics
When combined with gold or metallic accents, mint green looks super stylish and chic. Select glossy metallics or gold accents in a few strategic areas of the room to really bring emphasis to the color.
