Could This Be the Next Big Color Trend?
There’s nothing quite like the power of paint to make your home feel like new, and its transformative effects are well known to insiders as a simple and affordable way to make a big impact. While neutrals are practical and safe, decorating with bright shades or coating your walls in pops of pastel is definitely a lot more fun. If you’re thinking of sprucing up your interior to welcome the new season, we’ve found the prettiest pigment: mint. It’s everywhere we look at the moment, from Pinterest to popular home blogs and high-end home tours, and it’s easy to see why. From light to bright, there’s a variation to suit your personality and style. Mint can be bold or restrained, dazzling or moody—either way, it’s certainly charming, and we can’t wait to make its acquaintance in the home of our dreams.
If you want to ramp up the feminine factor, then throw some minty cushions into the mix—oh, and an über-elegant beaded chandelier in our favorite hue, of course.
This would just be another midcentury-inspired space without that impactful mint wall in the background. It really makes the neutral décor pop too.
If you need some fresh inspiration in the kitchen, try switching out the typical beige cabinets for this crisp color. It’s so inviting that you’ll be counting down the workday hours until you’re reunited.
Instead of painting your architectural ceilings in the classic neutral tones, opt for a fun, minty-fresh hue to create visual interest and a space you want to dwell in.
If you can’t quite commit to painting an entire wall, then update your space with décor. Opt for a timeless piece such as the classic Eames molded plastic chair in the up-to-date color, and witness the change. It’s a subtle shift, but the overall effect is dramatic.
There’s so much to love here, from the Hans J. Wegner wishbone chairs to the industrial pendant lamp, all set off by that fresh accent wall against the stairs. This shade is slightly pastel and blends nicely with the white and wood tones.
Is there anything more inviting than a velvet sofa? Add a mint green color into that mix, and we’re official sold. This is where we want to spend our afternoons reading.
This look is for those who only want to dip their pinky toe in the minty trend. Reupholster your favorite furniture with fabric in this stunning shade to see it transform. It’s certainly an improvement on these classic Churner stools.
This laundry is proof that your washroom can be super chic too. Why not? If you have to spend your precious time doing the chores, then it might as well be in an environment you enjoy.
A classic country kitchen can look contemporary too; just add a coat of paint in a new hue, and voilà! You can still have all the features of that rustic style, with a nod to the present day, all thanks to a simple color change. Extraordinary, isn’t it?
This feminine kitchen looks like it came straight out of a childhood fairy tale: floral wallpaper, plate wall hangings, creamy pink floors, and the cutest industrial pendants in pastel mint. We especially love the country/industrial mashup.
Sometimes it’s the smallest adjustments that have the power to make a colossal difference. This stunning dining room illustrates my point very clearly. Just one very cool and classic chair in bright mint green completely turns up the chic factor. And all it took was one piece of furniture.
Spruce up your entryway and welcome people in true style with mint doors. Now that’s a pleasant surprise for any guest.
You spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so it deserves your attention in the styling department. Who wouldn’t want to soak their bones in this extravagant bath situation staring at that stylish beaded chandelier?
A living-room update is just a few throw cushions or, in this case, a minty fireplace away. It’s definitely the center of attention thanks to the cool color, and all it takes is a brush and a pot of paint: too easy.
It might not look like much, but the two mint pieces really pop in this kitchen, don’t they? The industrial pendant lights up your attention, and the seafoam mug is a cool accent in the back. A few decorative accents are all it takes.
Who doesn’t love a mismatched chair setting in the dining room? Elevate your small space with a sleek shade adjustment. The best part? It’s totally affordable.
Mint is the perfect complexion for dowdy cabinets in need of an update. Just swap the doors out for modern versions in a seafoam green and watch your traditional kitchen come back to life before your eyes.
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: Mint really is the freshest tint. Try it in your home and embrace the cool change. Are you game to give it a go?
