Mint Or Olive: 12 Ways To Use These Hot Green Hues

Written by Jaymi Naciri Posted On Sunday, 10 April 2016 06:52

Think it's easy being green? It is if you're mint or olive. Right now, these two shades are hot in interior design. No matter what you style, incorporating one or the other (or both!) will freshen up your space.

Decorating with mint

Elle Décor called mint green the color of the moment earlier this year, based on the Pinterest love it was getting. "Pinterest users can't get enough of the fresh shade -- if fact, it's one of the most popular terms on the site," they said.

"This is a color that is deliciously serene on the surface yet as refreshing as the taste of spearmint," said Wayfair. It certainly is in this stunning bedroom.

Not ready to make such a large commitment? "This color pairs well with a variety of different hues, so adding in mint-colored furniture is a breeze. If you're already attached to your sofas and chairs, a tufted ottoman could be the way to go," said Elle Décor.

Or dress up a chair with a mint cushion that provides a pop of color to subdue the bold bits of yellow.

Decorating with olive

"Olive green is so lovely in interiors because it borders between being a neutral and a color, depending on how you use it," said Simplified Bee. "It can be bold or subtle, modern or traditional. It looks amazing paired with a multitude of colors include white, black, navy, orange, and turquoise. And of course it looks incredible paired with brass accents. Olive green just feels new again."

The hue gives a subway tile backsplash an unexpected pop against white cabinetry.


It also creates a subdued backdrop for a classic bathroom.
