Mint Green?

It seems as if Mint is in the air these days...

No, not the fresh smell of mint we associate with soothing tea or squeaky clean teeth. The mint I'm talkin' about is mint green, as in the colour. As in "I lived through this in the 80's" mint green. But flashbacks aside, mint green is looking, well, rather fresh...

Check out this example from Scandi stylist and writer Emma Persson Lagerberg. I don't know about you, but...

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS KITCHEN.

What makes this kitchen genius is the use of mint green in an otherwise restrained space. Flat front cabinets, single edge marble countertop and matching backsplash along with a razor thin floating shelf give it a decidedly modern vibe. The rustic furniture and painted floor soften the space and the "hip factor" is evident in the brilliant task lighting and accessories. Perfection!

Here's another minty fresh kitchen I can't get enough of. Who would have thought to pair mint green and navy blue? I wish I knew so I could thank them...

Well if mint's not your jam but you'd like to add a little something to the mix...

I know, bad pun. But seriously, could you do mint?
