As the seasons change and the days draw longer I’m forever guilty of continually dreaming about an escape to a beachside home that’s been decorated in a cool palette of milky white hues punctuated with refreshing accent colours. The mint green splashback in this kitchen is reflective of that dream: I’d love to walk into this space, kick off my flip flops and brush the sand off from between my toes, before heading over to the fridge and enjoying a cooling glass of fresh lemonade. OK, so this dream might be a long shot but there’s no denying the understated beauty of this kitchen’s design. The introduction of the mint hue in the splashback is a great example of how to invite colour into a pared-back palette without straying too far into an overtly bright scheme. The result is a scheme that still feels light and airy but with a gentle change in shade and colour that creates a much more interesting space than an all-white palette. Do you have any mint green accents in your home? Are you mad about mint, too?!
