Kids rooms: Decorating with mint green

June 9, 2015

decorating with mint green in kids rooms

A few weeks ago I talked about adding yellow accents to a kids room because yellow is such a cheerful and happy colour.   Another colour that I’m currently crazy about is mint.  It’s so fresh, so fun and like yellow works for both sexes and little babies too.   Besides, Spring and Summer are the perfect seasons to add a bit of minty green freshness in to your home.  Even if you’re not re-decorating, you can easily add a hint of mint in to any kids room or even your own to give it a fresh new look.  Mint beautifully compliments most colours and all styles of decor.  So if you want to add a little brightness and light, here are some ideas on decorating with mint green in a kids rooms to inspire you:

mint green for a baby nursery

Probably the easiest and quickest way to add a hint of mint to a nursery or kids room is by simply putting up some mint green art.  That large poster in the nursery pictured above adds a real breath of freshness to the room.  And even though there isn’t a lot of mint green in this room, the poster is so impactful that you don’t need more.

From a modern baby nursery to a vintage kids room – here is another easy way to add a splash of mint to a kids room.  Any old piece of furniture that needs updating can be painted in a mint green colour.  Often the furniture in a kids room gets the most wear so it’s the perfect excuse to freshen it up.

How gorgeous is this little girls room?  Here little mint coloured decorations have been dotted around which work so well with the whites, golds and pinks in the room.  From the soft toy with mint ears to the graphic mint blanket, it’s just little things like these that can add that splash of mint to a kids room.

If you want to go for a bolder mint green look, then paint the walls!  A room painted in mint from floor to ceiling may be a bit too much so instead, think about colour-blocking like in the beautiful nursery above.  The block of mint green goes so well with the pale grey, pink and darker green.  And colour blocked walls look so cool.

Yet another way of decorating with mint green is to add some mint bed linen like in this room above.  It’s the perfect way to add some Spring freshness and can so easily be changed every season.  I also love how they’ve used a rug with a tiny splash of mint which just makes the bedding stand out even more.  And also how great does mint look with deep, dark colours too?

    Mint is my favorite color and it’s the focus color in my nursery.

      I’m getting quite partial to mint – so fresh! And it’s absolutely perfect for a nursery. Would love to see more of your nursery.

    Mint is the colour I go for at the moment, especially when I dress the children in clothes that compliment each other. Love that wall with the geometric shapes / a grey-green palette. If I tried to reproduce that at home, it would probably be a disaster.

      It’s such a great colour for this season. I don’t believe that anything you create could ever be a disaster. You’re way to creative and talented for that 🙂

    Mint is such a lovely gender neutral colour perfect for decorating a nursery when the sex isn’t known

      I agree – it’s so great for a boy/girl shared room too. There is something so calming about it 🙂

    Love this! I’m on the hunt for a mint poster for my girls nursery, the animal printed one in the first picture would be just perfect! Do you know where this is from? I’ve googled and tried to search for it but no luck 🙁

      Hi Sanna – thank you! I am sorry but I did also try and have a look for the poster and couldn’t find it. It definitely looks like a Scandinavian designer but I am not sure which. If I do come across it, I will drop you a line. Happy new year! 🙂

    I found it after I posted my comment. It’s Danish called “Inca Wolf” & made by artist Tarik Arnautovic 🙂
