Mint had a major fashion moment this year, in fact its moment hasn't ended. It's still everywhere! This trend has had more staying power than I expected (and I'm glad, because I totally bought into it) and I think I could live with it for quite a while. Like, forever. It reminds me of the green tint of Spanish glass, and its fresh & clean palette is the perfect setting for preparing food - clearly I want a mint kitchen. I'd go so far as to tile my kitchen in it. I should probably mention that my bedroom was painted mint ("Mint Majesty," to be exact) for years and I absolutely loved the way my black bedframe and white bookshelves looked against it.
Mint + black + white = classic.
