What would you call this wall color? Jade? Aqua? Peppermint? Sage? Agave green? Whatever it’s called — it’s my favorite color of the moment. It’s at once soothing and invigorating. It’s very fresh, but at the same time has a kind of old-world charm to it. I think it works magic as a backdrop to a wall of plants, and plays so nicely with metallics — especially copper and gold.
A word of caution if choosing a Jade/Aqua/Peppermint/Sage/Agave green paint color — if you get the wrong shade it can start to look a bit infantile. I’d choose something with more grey and less turquoise like Benjamine Moore’s Spruce Green 2035-50, Water 01 from Colorhouse or Mint Smoothie DE5667 from Dunn Edwards.
One surefire way to bring this color in is through accent pieces and furniture — especially VELVET furniture. The glass pendant lamp up top is from Target, and it’s only $40. The mermaid, from Gumtree, is a new addition to my kitchen (she opens bottles for a living). And then, of course there’s my Fez wallpaper in seafoam for the mermaid to swim around in. Yum.
