Benjamin Moore's "DOGUE GRAY" DC - 06
In the above photo, designer Daryl Carter showcases his "New Traditional" line of paint colors for Benjamin Moore with "Dogue Gray," DC-06. And, while this appears a bit more of a palest-mint green to me than a gray, it certainly makes for a fresh, clean neutral backdrop in the space.

This isn't a grass - green . . . nor is it a gray. . . it's an icy - green !
Designer Fawn Galli used a custom paint color in the above space.
What goes well with pale, mint green ?
White is always a good place to start, be it trim, furnishings or accessories.

B l a c k works well too, as do other, similar dark tones which can have a grounding effect on the color. Touches of jewel tones, like the pink - reds above complement but do not overpower the green.

“This pale aqua green is like the ocean when it’s so clear you can see the sand through the water. It reminds me of holidays and sunshine and how calm you feel when you sit on the shore and watch the waves breaking.” -Jennifer Garrigues

It seems like everything Miles Redd touches turns to gold!
He was using pales-mint green a couple of years ago (he uses every green under the sun!). Redd adds very little to the pale green above - in terms of color or darker elements, except the console beneath the mirror - rather, he uses a tone - on - tone scheme. The green is a soft, serene backdrop for the porcelain collection on the walls...it is repeated in the window treatment and seat fabric.

Think Benjamin Moore's "PALEST PISTACHIO" 2122-60 (above, left)
or "ICING ON THE CAKE" 2049-70 (above right)
of course, these run towards the bluer side of mint.
Ralph Lauren Paint's "ORGANZA" ML17
Last but not least, MINT can be a wonderful neutral and a very soothing color!
Original illustration by Lillian HobanI don't know if I could have loved Russel Hoban's "Frances" books any more than I did as a little girl. And, as much as I enjoyed the stories, I adored the drawings of this little badger, Frances, her baby sister, and her friend Albert. They were mostly black and white, but the illustrator had a love of mint green....if there was any coloring at all, it would be mint green, and sometimes a bit of pale pink. The books have long since been updated, color-wise, but do these ever bring back some happy childhood memories!
For Lacy; early visionnaire of mint - green!
