Saturday Inspiration - Mint Green & Chinoiserie

de Gournay
I love the combination of mint green and Chinoiserie. Mint green is so fresh and cool on a hot summer day. It is a wonderful backdrop for blue and white and celadon Chinese porcelain. I used the same mint green paint color in my daughter's nursery and in my current kitchen. Here are some lovely examples of mint rooms to inspire you.

  1. Girlfriend you have got to add pin it buttons to you images! I pin them all. LOVE. As always you have some of my all time favorites and new favorites. Great minds.. ;)

  2. Love it! The mint green is fantastic! You called it right!
    Working with it on a project as we speak but in trellising.
    Have a great weekend, love following your blog!
    Love, Jamie Herzlinger

  3. I have been thinking about the "headless foodog" lamp since you posted it the first time. No one would publish a vignette with broke crockery, so what is it? In studying the photo today, I realized it isn't a foo dog at all. It is a frog-type creature with a sort of tortoise nose and mouth. The dark spot is the eye, and he is sitting in full profile. There, I feel better now.

  4. Ann - This has been driving me nuts! I'm so glad you solved this!
