Colour Cocktail: The Mint Magic

Chill those pillows and put the vases on ice because there’s a new colour cocktail in town. Yep, The Mint Magic is the bar menu’s new resident and it’s perfect to enjoy all year round. Featuring the refreshing base notes of mint and milk white this colour cocktail feels cooling and crisp. But don’t be fooled as there’s a triple shot of coral, pink and orange accents mixed in to keep the heat! These hues combine to create a colour cocktail scheme that’s perfect for spaces that need to remain light and airy all year round. Be sure to mix carefully: be generous with your mint and more restrained with the stronger coral hues for the smoothest result. Cheers, friends! Which of these market picks will you be ordering as you mix up your own Mint Magic colour cocktail?

    I looove this colour palette and that styling in your pics is pretty cool. I think I would start with the pendant lights first. Gorgeous.

    Most definitely!! Mint is what is happening in my bedroom and I finally found a fabric while in Germany to be transformed into bedding! Can't wait to seeing the mint coming together. Now I just have to decide on my accent color. I had yellow in mind for the bedroom and coral for the living room. Maybe I need to do a switch and see how things go!

    Love mint and coral, I've been wearing it all summer with a splash of gold! Great 'best pick' Mr Bizarre, I've already checked out the online shop for the Ivanhoe, I think my home needs it!

    Mint & Coral is one of my favorite combo ♥
    Fresh and feminine… Reminds me of spring time and it's great to remind this special season now that autumn is so near!

    Not exactly a colour combo I would choose for my own home, but I must admit that it is still very refreshing to look at. My eyes are happy. And I would really welcome the pendant light any day :)

    I might have found my new favorite color combo. I've been so stuck on orange and grey that I never really considered other, brighter color combos.

  • Reply Lelanie Slater September 3, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    I love this combo will. It's exactly the look I am aiming for in my studio. Coral is such a great colour- I am totally in love with it. Thanks for the beautiful post.
