COLOR LOVES - MINT

Today's color love feature is all about shades of mint and seafoam. It's such a versatile color that can be used in classical, cute and even preppy event designs. By itself mint is fresh and pretty, but chic at the same time. Pair it with lots of white for an extra fresh look.

If you want to go very classic, chic and elegant, pair off-shades of mint and seafoam with gold and neutral tones from cream over blush to beige and light brown. Add some very dark brown tones to give it a more masculin and dramatic touch.



This color palette works beautifully in either rustic environments like barns or in historical spaces with chandeliers, ornate ceilings and white walls.

For a feminine and pretty look, pair shades of bright mint with peach and blush tones. The color combo is perfect for romantic summer weddings, bridal and baby showers. Don't you love how light and airy these colors look together?

If you like it preppier, replace the peach shades with strong coral tones + black and white.
