touch of mint...







A pastel green... mint with a little yellow... it's the kind of colour that's luxurious, yet light and airy looking. All I can picture is chic, french hotels. I love the colour matched with gold, like on a gorgeous patterned sofa or the zipper on the back of a party dress. It's the perfect match for a serene spa-like bathroom or a girly little dressing room too. Or you could just get your fill of inspiration from a scoop of mint chip... cup or cone?

This is gorgeous. When I am trying to remember what colors I like when designing I will need to remember this post.

MMW - Thanks for the link! I've updated the source. I recognize the bed in that room too now.

Thanks for your comments everyone!
