The Color Files: Mint Green


When I was a little girl, I'd arrive at my great-grandmother's house and immediately dart to her living room. Lined with built-in bookshelves filled to the brim with beautiful books (like the second edition Emily Post book that now rests in my office!) and gallery walls of family photos, the room was magical. But it's best feature? The room was painted mint green. The walls, the trim, the paneling, the built-ins, all of it. A beautiful, glossy, wonderful mint green.

And since then, this color has stuck with me. Especially in interiors, my passion.
One of my favorite ways to see it paired is with a pop of fresh pink.




(Yes, I'm ridiculously head over heels in love with this kitchen.
Kitchen? Will you marry me?)







It's official: I need some mint green in my life, stat!
Do you love the freshness of mint green as much as I do?

  17. Mint green has never been on the top of my favorites (it can go so hospitally wrong) but all these photos are fabulous -- especially that kitchen. Oy, I love it. Maybe mint green is just like yellow, and should be chosen carefully ;)

  24. This color sticks out more than any other from my childhood. My mom and dad both worked hard and long hours and my grandma and grandpa lived next door...grandma was a housewife and papa was a farmer, so I spent most of my days there. Their farmhouse had this color through most of it. It is now over 160 years old. My grandma (now 95) still lives there and does most things for herself. Everytime I see this color it takes me back to those days.
