Where all things beautiful collide

Okay…so apparently I’m feeling springy!  As a follow-up of sorts to Monday’s post all about a fresh start, this is all about bringing a fresh color other than white home.  Mint!  I’ve been seeing this pale shade of blue-green popping up in clothing stores, as well as many home stores, like West Elm and Crate & Barrel, as a refreshing hue for after the holidays.  From Belgian linens, to ceramics, and enamelware, mint is a great way of adding some subtle and soothing color to your home this winter that will see you well until Easter, where it will fit in even better with its other pastel friends.  I was also reminded of some spaces featuring mint green by two of my favorite designers, Tom Scheerer and Jeffrey Bilhuber.  And how could I leave out Martha Stewart?  It’s basically her signature color!  The products I’ve found would fit in perfectly in their rooms, and yours!  Now…can we just jump to the season where I can have fresh mint in a pitcher of mojitos?!

The ‘Dromedary’ sofa by John Derian was slipcovered in a pale mint linen, keeping the cool vibe going in the nearly all-white room.

My sister has a kitchen with cabinets painted a minty green, and it’s so fresh looking!

Mexican tile floors in Martha’s kitchen are more of a turquoise, but chairs surrounding the huge breakfast table are a paler shade that mimics her collection of McCoy pottery.

All of Martha’s outdoor furniture at her East Hampton home ‘Lily Pond Lane’ are painted the same shade of “Martha” green to play off of the home’s trim.
