It's Just Mint to Be: After a Few Years, Our Color Obsession Is Still Going Strong


By Eva Recinos When you shop for household goods and decor, you might not notice that you gravitate toward certain colors. Even with a design palette in mind, it seems we naturally find some hues more pleasing than others. And while we normally don't like to play favorites when it comes to color — after all, a great room can be a combination of almost literally any of them—something about the color mint in particular just makes it irresistible. Even though mint is long past its heyday on the runways, in the home decor space it just keeps going and going. And we're still loving it, too: from rugs to shower curtains to dishes, the color continues to pop up in some of our favorite rooms on the Internet. For how long it's been in vogue and continues to stay there, we might even be so bold as to call it timeless. Here are a few of the latest swoon-worthy items that are still rocking the pastel color—and will keep rocking it, because we just can't stop wanting pieces in the calming hue: Air Plant Planter—Mint with Gold Dots, Etsy, $17.
