Mighty Minty

Mint green just won’t seem to go away. Personally, I’m much more drawn to wearing it than decorating with it. But in doing some brainstorming this weekend on fabric possibilities for a client… I may have been persuaded to consider this cool color…

While I think covering an entire sofa may be going a bit far, I do love it as as accent chair, which is how we’d be using it. I find it surprisingly sophisticated when paired with simple black  + white, and downright gorgeous against a good plum. It plays nicely with wood tones and enhances any type of metallic accents, but especially a beautiful bronze. Perhaps a nice strong mint is the new aqua? What do you think?
