Minty Fresh!

August 20, 2012 by admin

Lots of you have noticed my love of minty green when you visit Penney & Company.  I love to use this colour in accessories, painted furniture, and even some of my back drops in the shop.  I have a little collection of minty inspiration shots that are catching my attention these days that I wanted to share with you – enjoy!

Miles Redd’s door in NYC

Black, red, white – the usual front door colours.  How about MINT?!

Chairs painted a minty hue around a white painted table in a sunny nook?  Of course!

Mint by Tom Scheerer

And you can always go whole-hog mint like my idol Tom Scheerer!  Walls, ceiling, everything!  You gotta love MINT!

    We are totally with you Michael! Minty green is gorgeous….i want that front door with the hardware!

    While we’re on a mint theme,did you happen to hear anyone in Maine use the phrase “wicked mint”? Anything ” wicked ” in New England is the non plus ultra as in the ever popular ” wicked good”. With your love of all things mint, this might be just made for you!

    So very pretty! I would use it over and over!

  5. I painted our main bathroom a minty green and was recently considering repainting it as I was losing confidence in my colour choice (minty green often gets a bad rap in magazines and blogs). Thanks to your love for it, I’m back to loving it. Those are great inspiration photos and I love the minty green in your shop.

    Have you seen the little kitchen cart in the new IKEA catalogue? Mint green! It is so cute.

    Michael, your shop is 5 minutes from my house and I go there often! The first time I asked one of the girls in the shop to give me the names of the paint colours you used as backdrops… gorgeous! Love mint. Love the greenish linen table runner/throw that you wouldn’t sell me the last time I was there lol!!! Love your shop!
