Mint Inspirations

Posted on November 8 2012, Bathroom Planning

Whilst peppermint is a love it or hate taste, mint is a balmy soft hue that always has a feeling of calm and adds light to a room.  Green is the colour of nature and the delicate pale green shades of Mint are often used throughout a house.  Mint was extremely popular in bathrooms during the Art Deco period teamed with the classic black border tiles at floor level and borders breaking up the room.

Mint really comes into its own on painted walls or furniture, and is frequently used in kitchens and bathrooms.

Mint coloured tiles are often used in bathrooms as a soft colour which creates a luminous atmosphere adding light and space.

Using mint with soft shades of cream, ivory or white create a light and airy room.  Mint and raspberry or any vivid shade or pink adds warmth and vibrancy as you can see in this picture from our showroom.
