Spring time is just around the corner, and I’m feeling a color trend on the rise. Mint green is trending for me at the moment personally, and it seems as though I’m not the only one. While on my trip to KBIS tradeshow in Vegas, I was flipping through a magazine and began to see this wonderful color it in the forefront.
This sorbet color is so cool, fresh and modern and can look great in any space be it traditional or contemporary. I want to pay special attention to the fixed materials such as tile flooring, paint, or lighting. When, you chose a color such as mint green, needless to say, it will certainly add freshness to any space.
So, how does this really look in a space you say? And how where and how would you recommend that I use it? Let’s break this down shall we.
First try Ming Green Marble anything! When I first saw this used in a master bath suite designed by Sarah Richardson I was blown away at how fresh and bubbly the room felt. When you’re at the tile store, please don’t pass this tile up because of its soft green color and think that there is “no way that this could work”, and then opt. for the bland beige tile.
Ming Green marble has so many shades of cool colors that look great with white, grays, metallics, and warm wood tones and can go from feminine to masculine very comfortable depending on its pairings.
Next, if going with a fixed flooring or backsplash tile is too much of a commitment for you? Then try it in a color on a vanity in a monochromatic room and let it be the showstopper. My favorite shades of mint are by Pittsburgh Paints colors 104-3 Dinner Mint or 205-2 Mint Majesty. Be sure to try this in a high lacquer finish on furnishing for the added pop of freshness!
Moreover, my other favorite is the use of fabric of course on a bench or cool sleek chair. Don’t forget out the outdoors this would be a great place to play with this color. Check out these outdoor chairs I found while flipping through the pages of March’s Elle Decor Magazine.
Lastly, work in this color with a fabulous lighting fixture it’s a bit different and can be just enough to make a statement.
Awe, all this just makes me want to sit poolside with the aroma of coca butter in the air and artisanal made mojito in hand while the warm sun slowly seeps into my winter pale skin.
