One Room Challenge: Mint Green

Mary McDonald
Many of you have inquired about my mint green kitchen wall paint color. The color is Benjamin Moore #457 called Icy Morn. It has two meanings for me this morning because the power came back on late yesterday afternoon and I awoke to a deliciously cool house. I love this color - it works unbelievably well with Chinoiserie - a perfect backdrop for blue and white Chinese porcelain, black and gold lacquered pieces, celadon, and Chinese red. Here are three mint green Chinoiserie rooms as examples. I have used this color for clients in a nursery and in a sun porch and it was lovely. I also predict that mint green will be a big color in 2013.
