Color of the Month: Mint

Color of the Month: Mint

Posted by DecoArt on Apr 5th 2020

April's Color of the Month is mint! Mint is a fresh and fabulous color, perfect for Spring projects. Popular in 2020 fashion and interior design trends, this color is also a great option for updating your outdoor spaces. 

The modern mint color we all know and love is a pastel variation of "spring green," which was first used as a color name in England in 1766. On the color wheel, spring green is between green and blue.

Style expert Max Grobe predicted that "Neo Mint" would be a big deal in 2020, and he was right! Although this color can be used to achieve a vintage look, when used in modern fashion it creates an extremely futuristic vibe. This color is also the perfect balance between natural and tech and is gender-neutral so it can be worn and appreciated by everyone! (Source: Highsnobiety)

Mint is great to use in home décor since it is sensible, balanced, and versatile. Use mint in your kitchen to achieve a vintage, farmhouse effect and in your bathroom for a clean and cool vibe. The mint shade in our Americana Decor Chalky Finish line is named "Refreshing" because like mint the herb, mint the color is fresh and airy. Finally, mint is simply elegant when used in outdoor projects like the ones below.
