As Spring 2016 approaches, decorating lovers can prepare to revitalize their homes with fresh, punchy shades of Tiffany blue and rose quartz. However, if you prefer pastel green tones to the season’s reigning hues, try incorporating mint green into your interior design statement instead. Whether you’re planning to revamp your bedroom or living room this season, here’s how to infuse your space with hints of cool minty green.
Upgrade your white bedroom with a mint green knit throw blanket and matching curtains: For minimalists who prefer a stark white space, try contrasting your ivory bed sheets and cream-coloured walls with mint green accents. Create a perfect finishing touch with a cable knit throw blanket in a soft pale green hue, along with coordinating drapes and a patterned accent pillow.

Add sleek painted chairs to your neutral space: Add an instant pop of colour in the form of stylish wooden chairs finished with a coat of light mint green paint. Contrast your décor with airy white curtains, light wooden shelving, gleaming white floors and pale grey printed pillows.
Pair a mint green wall with funky wall art and floral curtains: For the adventurous and daring homeowner who prefers vivid statements, try plunging into this emerging trend with a mint green accent wall into your living room. Complete the look with an edgy, artistic painting or quirky wall art, and use floral print curtains in rainbow hues to offset the minty shade.
Use a mint green and white area rug to breathe new life into your flooring: While glistening hardwood floors can look freshly shined and eternally sophisticated, a mint-coloured area rug may be the springlike colour you’ve been dreaming of. Try adorning your plain floors with a mint green and white striped area rug, contrasted against wooden blinds, flawless white walls and a white lampshade for a polished effect.
