When we started designing our nursery collections, incorporating mint was a no-brainer. We loved that it suited either boys or girls, tied in with many design trends today, and almost acts as a neutral when paired with other colors.
Here are 8 ways to incorporate mint into your nursery - whether you’re going all in with mint walls or just using it as an accent color:
The bold black and white stripes in this modern nursery are the perfect complement to the mint walls and colorful accents. Perfect for either a little boy or girl, this design incorporates bold color blocking tied together with mint tones. While nothing looks too coordinated, the room feels artfully designed and intentionally put together. We especially love the animal accents for the future animal lover.
While there are some similar design choices between this and the “Modern” nursery (see the mint walls and black and white rug), this amazing room pulls in some vintage touches to give it a true eclectic feel. Utilizing black, natural wood, gray, and white furniture, nothing is off-limits with this design. The gold frames of the gallery wall lend a bit of sophistication to the room and birdcage card holder remind us of a more glamorous age.
Gotta say we’re a little jealous of sweet Camille and this adorable nursery complete with a gold polka dot accent wall. Mint and gold are natural complements and we love how it’s tied subtly into this design with the polka dots, gold drawer pulls, and mirrored accents over the crib. To keep it simple, they chose a bright floral bedding as the focus and kept everything else a bright white or gold.
In this gorgeous nursery design, mint plays a supporting role to the floral wallpaper and feminine accents. We love how they kept everything simple and pulled out the accent color to add a bit of interest with the throw pillow and wall art. The choice to focus on a cooler color like mint keeps this nursery design from being overly girly and entirely pink. The result? A pretty, feminine look that is still sophisticated enough to blend with the rest of your home.
Perfect for those who are drawn to neutral designs, this nursery is primarily white with muted mint accents to add a bit of dimension. They chose a patterned rug as a focal point and kept the rest of the design simple. They also incorporated natural wooden elements as well as hints of gold to contrast the primarily white design. Our favorite hidden gem? The mint tones painted on the back of the bookshelf.
We’re swooning over this classic mint and white design. Not only have they found the PERFECT shade of mint for the walls, but they’ve complemented it with gorgeous white tones and simple furniture. As with many of these designs, gold makes an appearance but the real focal point is the giraffe keeping an eye over the crib. We love a nursery that features whimsical accents without feeling too juvenile.
One of the best things about decorating with mint is how well it works with so many other colors. In Jude’s nursery, they pulled in muted greens, yellows, oranges, and natural tones that results in a nursery that is colorful without being over the top. We especially love the balloon wall hangings and cloud hooks.
Two words: GOLD GLITTER. From the winged wall hangings to the vintage lace design on the drawers, this mint, blush, and gold nursery oozes glam. Pulling the lace trend into the bedding ties the room together and creates a space worthy of the princess occupying it. Using mint as an accent color helps take this room from ordinary to extraordinary without an overwhelming pop of color.
