INSPIRED BY: Cool Colors in Vintage Homes


At the end of this month we will finally be moving into our mid century ranch! The hunt for era-appropriate inspiration still continues, this time with some cooler color considerations. Which one is your favorite? I’m really digging the minty room below.

Check out the last two vintage home inspiration posts I did here and here. Click the images for the original Flickr pages where I found them.

    I adore the seaside green room! That is probably because I painted my kitchen the same color :)

    What looks AMAZING is brass accessories against a mint/seafoam colored wall. It’s versatile too- it can be styled as tropical, Middle Eastern or MCM. All of these color combinations are gorgeous. You have a good eye!
