Color Combo: Mint & Yellow

I have always adored the colors mint and yellow, but certainly not together. Boy times, they are a changin'. I have recently come across a few spaces that have totally rocked my face off. As a design enthusiast, I tire of things quickly. For those of you who have followed along for some time now, you will remember my office that I finished in the One Room Challenge. I love it, but I am ready for a change up. Enter mint and yellow. What say you?

Tell me this color combo isn't everything. Just do it. Here is the plan for my new office. What you will not see here, chair rail will be implemented with millwork design throughout. Part of my New Year's Resolutions, member? Anyhow, I am seeing dramatic yellow dupioni silk drapery, dual drum chandelier lighting, mint walls, geometric flooring and some serious abstract art. Are we in love?

Have a wonderful weekend my sweets. We may be buried here if the meteorologists are actually correct in their predictions. Which, let's face it, their accuracy level is probably at 32%. We will give 'em a chance though. What are you all getting into this weekend? Do share. XOXO

  1. I have never thought of this combo. It's cool. I am so happy mint is still alive and well.

  2. I love it too. Im a yellow person so I love all the combos. I feel that you either love yellow or you don't. Great room choices on your board. Have a great weekend Linds.

  18. I just painted my kitchen in these colors. It's fresh and retro at the same time, but I will say that at first it felt a bit like a preschool.

    Not my kitchen, but this was part of the inspiration. http://pinterest.com/pin/104286547592999383/
