Mint + Beige

Mmmm mint! I'm all about beige right now also and loving it, especially as a trench coat with a fun, colorful patterned lining for spring or on the walls with crisp white glossy trim. I'm also liking mint and cream a great deal... I keep thinking of painting an hold cabinet a minty green like the one shown below. What is your current color crush? I think peachy coral would be a great accent with this mint/beige color combo, don't you think? Minty Fresh

Going Green

Not a big fan of pastel-y Mint? Even though it is such a pretty hue... it's not for everyone. You can combine it with fresh green or chartreuse to brighten things up or add in a muddy olive and deep gray to make the room more rich and cozy... above are some inspirations from vtwonen magazine showing you how to mix mint in for a fresh spring look. If you are not familiar with vtwonen, it is a fabulous decorating magazine from the Netherlands that I started subscribing to a few years ago. I can't miss a month of this mag - even Leslie is a subscriber and a few of my other US-based friends. I definitely suggest it for loads of decorating ideas & inspiration. They produce books to, I will be in Amsterdam in June so I plan to pick up a few this time as they're quite amazing.
