How to decorate with mint

Redecorating your home with an invigorating splash of mint is sure to help cool you down this summer. The hue made an inspired comeback on the runways last summer, and has remained popular ever since. The look conjures up the energy of the swinging '60s, is post-modern and entirely fresh. Here are some tips for decorating with mint. 

Minty fresh walls
While mint may seem like a bold color, it goes on walls easily, without being too jarring. Simply pair it with neutrals to tone it down. The pigment looks amazing with black and white, or any variation of. Just picture a romantic mint room with sleek, dark blinds and shades and white windowsills. It's also the perfect color for a bathroom - soothing, and fantastical. Match mint ceramic tiles with onyx-colored ones and white accessories and you've got yourself one retro chic commode!

Rooms with a side of mint
Sometimes, a touch of mint is better than going all-out (think mojito). In this case, the cheeky hue works wonders in a cool, gray room with - you guessed it - black and white accents. A lighter shade of mint fits in seamlessly in rooms that are predominantly white. Look for a few pillow slips that feature the color, and watch how they brighten up a room. You could also combine the mint craze with the faux-chandelier trend, and get an opulent overhead light made out of plastic or resin in the hue. Love the idea of mint, but aren't sure where to fit it in? Look no farther than the front door. A white or gray house with a green lawn and a mint door is so precious and cutting-edge at the same time. 

Throwback Thursday featuring mint
Minty accessories are so incredibly vintage. Think of the kind of cool princess phone you'd see in Grease. Those sorts of accessories are still made, and would look excellent on your bedside table. Or, hang a retro wall-mounted phone in your kitchen. Not a fan of the princess style? No problem, you could get a mint green mixer to display on your kitchen island. In that vein, you could take a giant leap and get a vintage ice box in the funky shade, or take it slow and just get some jadeite flatware.
