I feel like I have grown to appreciate mint. When about 10-years-old I scooped a spoonful of mint chip ice cream out of a carton and quickly discovered that minty desserts just wasn’t for me. But when I became a teen I couldn’t get enough of Andes mints. Had mint been meant to be an adult treat for me? Possibly.
Now I enjoy a hint of mint with my creamy chocolate desserts, or some minced mint in my cocktail. And now I am beginning to develop a love for the color of mint. I believe it should look the way it tastes — crisp, cool, and refreshing. Whenever I get the taste of mint in my mouth I can’t help but love my first next breath. My mouth gets this sensational cooling feeling while I sip in the air through my lips. Might sound crazy, but it’s the only time I think air is actually delicious in itself!
Below is a variety of inspirational mint items — from art to jewelry to interior design, I just had to share my favorite images with you!
As silly as this might sound, I love the color of mint on walls. I think this picture is the perfect piece of art that shows how mint chip ice cream might just make for fabulous decor!
I am in love with this pillow from Anthropologie! I have been searching for a perfect decorative pillow for my apartment’s sofa and I think this might just be it!
Who said drinking straws are for kids? I’ve been searching for chic straws for an event that’s coming up and I think these are perfect! I’ve been finding things like this on Etsy fairly often!
Another Anthropologie favorite… I can’t help it! I love these mint-colored bowls! Perfect to hold my mint-chip ice cream!
I’ve been searching for the perfect image to display why I love mint on a wall in a home. This is perfect to show you all! It’s not too over-done and the color is just right. With the perfect accents and room accessories I think the mint colored walls make this bedroom luxurious and at the same time practical.
How fantastic are these earrings!? I love gold, and it seems to be making such a come-back too! I see earrings like this all the time at a jewelry market on 14th street between 8th and 9th avenue. It’s located underneath a church and they have this jewelry market set up every Saturday!
It might be retro (with a modern design and modern technology) but I love it!
