Invite spring into your home all year round with mint green paint.
What’s enticingly edible, always refreshing and trending right now for colour schemes? Marvellous mint! It brings bright and cheerful energy to any room of the house and provides a flexible backdrop for a range of colour schemes. Along with being as fresh as a breath of fragrant spring air, mint offers a soothing, calming quality that encourages clarity of mind and pure relaxation.
From a mint green living room to simple updates and full makeovers, here’s how you can invite this delectable shade into your home.
Mint green colour combinations
Is your bathroom, kitchen, living room or bedroom mainly white or cream? Mint accents will be right at home while adding a fresh burst of modern energy to the colour palette. For a sleek and sophisticated look, pair cool mint green painted walls with stylish black furniture.
Pretty pale colours like dusky pink and lavender contribute to a soft, feminine feel and shades of grey add to the soothing appeal. Feel like a splash in the ocean? Recreate the feeling by mixing teal and mint. To bring a touch of glamour, you can’t go wrong with gold or silver accessories on a backdrop of mint green paint.
Sleep soundly in a mint green bedroom
A mint green bedroom allows you to fall asleep in a soothing atmosphere and wake up with a refreshing kick of colour. For quick, simple updates to neutral backdrops, look to bedding, window treatments and cushions to introduce just a hint of mint. Consider sprucing up your old cupboards, chairs or shelves with a lick of Crystal Surprise 6.
To make a serious impact in a small bedroom, choose two shades of mint. Coat your walls with the lighter tone and your bed frame or statement furniture in the darker shade. When you use Dulux Light + Space Matt, the light-reflective particles contained in the formula will add to mint’s ability to enhance a sense of spaciousness. Top the look off with playful patterns and textures in tonal or complementary colours.
Dive into mint living spaces
You’ll always be in a rush to get home to a mint green living room and dining area that feels welcoming, friendly and ready for leisure time. As social hubs, cool mint green painted walls throughout both spaces ties your colour scheme together for natural flow throughout your design.
Be bold and combine a vibrant teal like Lagoon Falls with beachy Ocean Ripple on separate or two-tone walls. If there’s a hallway between your living and dining rooms, continue the colours with one on each side of the wall. Add to the outdoorsy vibe with natural wooden furniture and darker tones of green for statement or dining chairs.
Freshen up with a mint green bathroom
You won’t even need to hop in the shower to feel clean in a mint green bathroom. Whether you paint the cabinets, update your towels or add mint green wall décor, there’s no better shade to give your space a serious dose of freshness.
Go as bright as you like or choose a more subtle Tuscan Glade 6 for feature walls. Grey is a fantastic choice for splashbacks or tiles and a white ceiling tops off the crisp look. Complete the design with lush plants and wicker baskets for storage. For a bit of modern edge and sophistication, include artwork with black frames.
Design a delectable mint green kitchen
Match your walls to your herbs to create a space that’s entirely delicious in the kitchen. The scope for adding this shade to the kitchen is wide, to say the least, with cabinets, benchtops, shelves, stools and walls begging for a taste of mint.
If you’re looking for an eclectic scheme, pair dark brown cabinets with mint green paint on a feature wall behind them. Keep things fresh with splashes of bright white for tiles, window or door frames. Contrast the colour with a lick of dusky pink or coral paint for accents on stools, drawers or accessories.
Welcome with mint exteriors
Mint green blends in with nature but still makes a beautiful statement for the exterior of your home. From deep browns to warm creams, a splash of mint green on front doors, garden gates or window frames matches common exterior house colours. Best of all, this might be all it takes to update the curb appeal of your home, not to mention impress your guests on arrival.
Accessorising with mint green
As we’ve seen, this is a shade that’s as flexible as a breath of fresh air feels. Therefore, it’s usually easy to incorporate with the accessories you already have. For a full makeover, wooden accessories really make the colour pop and enhance a natural appeal, if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s hard to beat the crisp look of mint green paired with bright white tiles in the kitchen or bathroom.
Whether you choose brass features, silver candelabras or gold frames, metallics inject modern glamour with mint green wall décor. For an elegant, earthy look, choose chocolate brown sofas or statement chairs. When it’s spring you want to invite in, accessorise with artworks, rugs, cushions or bedding in violet, blues and pinks. Mint green also lends itself perfectly to shabby chic styles when you pair it with naturally weathered furniture and vintage décor.
From the outside in, this truly hospitable and versatile shade will feel as good in your home as a mint choc-chip ice cream tastes on a hot day.
