‘Neo mint’ is going to be big news in 2020, according to forecasting company WGSN. Colour director Jane Monnington Boddy states “Neo mint is a shade that succinctly aligns futuristic development with nature.” Great for a year that predicts to be a dazzling one in terms of technological advances. It all sounds very intriguing, and since green in every shade is definitely my all-time favourite colour crush, I am extremely excited to see this light, cool-toned colour already trickling into high-street stores (any excuse to go shopping, hey?)
This bright, fresh shade is young and modern, and it also compliments pink perfectly as seen in this image from Little Greene Paint Company. Great news for those, who, like me have fallen for the blush pink trend that’s been seen in every house worth gawping at in 2019!
It also makes a stunning backdrop for a plant collection – showcased below against the restful shade of their paint colour ‘Cricket’. Since green is the colour of nature, all shades work together in harmony, creating a serene feel.
Many different design styles can be enhanced through the addition of this lovely shade – read on for some suggestions:
For a relaxed, nature inspired look, team with natural materials, such as linen, stone, and wood. Grey is a great neutral to use alongside.
For a more luxe feel, combine mint with teal and gold accents, which will add depth and richness.
Mint pairs well with monochrome, try using coloured tiles to jazz up a neutral bathroom or kitchen.
For a botanical vibe, go maximalist with plants or botanical prints, all set against a soft green backdrop.
If you like a retro feel, add mid-century style furniture, mid-toned wood and half white, half green walls.
