In many of our recent postings, we’ve noticed a cool, crisp color breezing into practically everything we do, and it couldn’t be more refreshing. Mint green — a color that used to be confined to hospitals and clinical environments for its calming properties — is beginning to make its way into modern interiors with a brisk yet subtle hint of the outdoors in even the coziest of spaces.
Particularly fetching when weathered and showing signs of use, the hue offsets the books within to gorgeous effect in this repurposed dresser drawer-cum-bookcase and nightstand:
Equally beautiful when presented in a pristine and regal manner, the color blends icily — and yet somehow with an inexplicable and simultaneous warmth — in this tall set of curtains above an impeccably white soaking tub:
And in our final image, we have a perfect illustration of the fact that a mix-and-match treatment can be even fresher than a matched set; the color itself is so orderly, so calm, that to see it in unexpected places in incomplete amounts is literally like giving a room a spritz of breath spray just before interacting with anyone.
Presented in untarnished, lacquer-finish chairs but interrupted with warm blond wood in between them, this is a prime example of brilliant use of color in an airy, accessible space.
