Mint is a classy colour. I have never seen this colour done in a 'cheap' manner both on the runway and in interior accents. Mint coloured accessories are usually seen on dainty items such as fine china, and kitchen items, which bring a great accent to a room. A perfect colour to pair with white, as it is very fresh and adds a sense of vintage to a room. It has definitely been done in other rooms of the house with great style and sophistcation, just like the colour itself.

My personal Mint collection consists of a really interesting coffee maker from Melitta, made in Germany. I do not know what decade this little thing of the past is from but it sure is cool!

That is the end of my mint collection, besides a pair of pants, and I think that will be my only mint fixture in my collection of fun stuff. I do love mint when it is done well in interiors, I just think that there are other colours that are heavier hitters for Spring that may out-shine mint for 2013, but that is for another day.
