Trend Tracker: Mint Green Interior Accents

Trend Tracker: Mint Green Interior Accents

When I lived in Copenhagen, I fell in love with the minimalist, mid-century modern interior style, though it often felt a bit too colorless for me. I need tons of color in my life. A bit after I moved there I started to notice a fun trend that helped alleviate the lack of color: mint floors. These new mint floors still kept to the minimal aesthetic, while warming up the space and creating a refreshing palette. The color mint has been en vogue for a few years now but I’d gladly have it stay for a very long time. Here are some of my favorite interiors that use mint green as a focal point.

The Best of Caesarstone’s Blizzard in the Kitchen

If you’ve been following along on my articles over the past year and a half, you will have noticed my frequent proclamation that white is the color for today’s kitchen. And this is coming from a girl who loves excessive patterns and colors! To me, nothing feels more refreshing and hygienic than white details with the cupboards and countertops. It’s like it’s begging for food to be placed on it. Plus, I find that white acts as a beautiful canvas for the food, especially if you’re into presenting the food to guests. Caesarstone has one of my favorite shades of white for countertops: Blizzard. It’s not stark and has a touch of warmness to it (despite the name) that evades throughout the space. Here are some of my favorite kitchens that use Caesarstone’s Blizzard.
