Nostalgic Mint Green Home Decor Is Making a Big Comeback
Mint is fresh again—and here to stay.
This refreshingly crisp, pastel-but-not-prissy shade is the comeback color of the moment. (Fortunately, designers haven’t shied away from its retro roots). Here are 10 fun ways to infuse your home with this vintage color.
Throwback Tile
Designer Meredith Ellis smartly schemed this powder room around its original green tile.
Painted Paneling
Take a cue from the designers at Brockschmidt & Coleman and give a staid space a top-to-bottom refresh with Farrow & Ball’s Arsenic.
Mint-Condition Appliances
Add a pop of mint green to your kitchen with vintage-inspired appliances. For a similar look, try Big Chill’s Retro line, which fuses midcentury charm with modern technology. (And any appliance maker who includes “Jadite Green” in its colorways is cool with us.)
Porcelain Planter
Try a patch of herbs (mint, perhaps?) in this stately 9″ vessel.
Metal Headboard
This softly hued carbon-steel piece offers industrial appeal without feeling overtly “factory.”
Shaker-Style Bench
Made from eco-friendly rubberwood, this simple-yet-sturdy piece adds a practical sort of pretty to a mudroom.
Weathered Island
A chippy green finish gives this one-of-a-kind workstation showstopper cred.
Enamel Pendant
The flatter, shallow shade on this indoor-outdoor fixture casts a wide swath of light.
