Jenn Hannotte on Freshly Minted Décor

I don't normally get worked up by a colour trend, but since last spring mint green has been not-so-subtly inserting itself into my sub-consious and causing quite the reaction. What's not to love? It works in every situation, on every surface, for every thing  in your life! It's also the kind of colour that can move from pastel to neon and maintain its fresh, breezy integrity. But the only way to convince you is to show you:

Did I surprise you? Modern mint green cupboards paired with raw-wood finishes and natural stone is effortlessly fresh.

This vintage-inspired mint green sofa paired with emerald green side-tables and natural accessories proves mint's ability to play-nice with like-minded hues.

If you are struggling with your ballroom in your 17th century paris apartment, why not coat the whole place in mint? It's a playful elegance that any other colour would be hard-pressed to deliver.

Spray paint some vintage metal garden stools in a fresh mint to instantly transform your kitchen or dining room into an al-fresco inspired retreat.

Of course, mint is totally at-home in a retro vignette; the table paired with a gorgeous coral chair and soft-gray floors is making me re-think the scheme in my own kitchen.

Bathrooms love mint green - always have! But you don't need to go kitchy-50s. Large, glossy tiles in this rich-mint colour is a great way to give a modern bath some organic aesthetic.

We're pleased to feature another fresh post from interior stylist Jenn Hannotte of Russet and Empire Interiors back to the Covet Garden blog. Her work has been featured in Design Lines Remodelista, Apartment Therapy and the Marion House Book to name a few.
