Make your summer minty fresh with 10 of the best purchases in the season's coolest shade
Minty green is high on the hit list for summer decorating. Whether it’s adding a burst of freshness to a room with accessories or making a statement with a gorgeously green piece of furniture, this is one of the coolest shades of the moment and we’re loving what’s on offer in the shops right now. Check out our top ten picks to add a breath of minty freshness to your home.
The perfect place to pop your peonies, these Hobnail bottles from West Elm (bottles from £14, candle holders pictured from £7) add an extra layer of colour to your favourite bouquet and a quirky touch of texture too.
Part of the Made.com and Livingetc collaboration, the Aldo dressing table (£259, Made.com) features an ash surface with teal features, which add a gorgeous hint of colour to a neutral bedroom scheme.
Why should all cooking pots be black and boring? Le Creuset are the absolute kings at colourful cookware and the round casserole dish in mint (Selfridges, £116) is no exception. Keep hold of it for your winter dishes or use it to serve up a salad in the meantime.
Add a little zing to a tired wall with this gorgeous wall covering from Villa Nova (£33 per role). A heritage paisley set against a mint coloured background for a modern twist.
Jazz up candle lighting with the Pillar Candle Holder in Mint (£16, House by John Lewis). A great accessory for giving an ordinary pillar candle a modern twist.
Here at Livingetc we love pudding so it’s no surprise that when Loaf launched their pudding sofa earlier this year, it caught our attention. This version in Peacock brushed cotton (£1,595, Loaf) was the perfect fit for our mint list and we think you’ll agree it looks every inch as comfortable as it does stylish!
Serve up a salad in style with these Tall Bamboo Salad Servers (£12.50, Oliver Bonas). Each made from natural bamboo with a pop of matt colour on the ends to brighten up a summer barbecue.
When it comes to gorgeous fabrics in irresistable colour hues, Designers Guild is the place to go. The Astor Turquoise & Aqua bed linen (starting at £25 for pillow cases) is ideal for a neutral scheme in a fresh all white with a hint of minty piping on the edges.
If you don’t want to go all out on a mint green sofa, why not accessorise your lounge with the Nixon cushion (£10, Habitat). Its two-tone weave in 100% cotton adds texture and quality, bringing life to an old couch or armchair.
