More Mint-spiration.

God, that was cheesy. Anyways, the re-brand of Claridge’s Hotel in London is one of the best collective design work I’ve seen in a while.  The mint and black color scheme are so chic yet so fun you can’t help but smile.  Not to mention this shade of mint is like, my favorite thing ever right now.  I saw a pair of shorts at J.Crew yesterday in this color and would have snapped them up had they not looked like complete ass on me.

And check out the new David Lindley designed bathrooms in the new color scheme! (Thanks Melanie for the heads up on that one!)

It reminds me of this- my favorite ice cream flavor ever.

Which in turn reminds me of all this:

I need more mint in my life.

  1. Erin: I love the further Mint-spiration — thanks! Your prior post inspired me to search for mint accessories for my summer look. I got an awesome mint and gold bangle on on ebay for $12 and a necklace on Etsy. If I could attach pics, I would.

  2. I don’t really love the color combo interiorly (that can be a word) speaking, but really dig the room with the lighter mint and awesome brown chair with hide rug.

    LOVING both dresses you posted though. Super gorgeous and summery-elegant.

  3. Go check out the BBC News website today under the travel section. “World’s Coolest Hotel Bathrooms” showcases the new Claridge bathroom in this color scheme. You will die.

  4. I love green! I refer to it as sea-foam green though – love your postings!
    p.s when are you going to honor me with an interview for my beauty website?

  5. LOOOOVEEE it! also– there’s a seafoam ‘gellish’ nail color out there that I just about melted over at the salon. Hello minty green!

  6. I love mint hues (not the taste), I’m surprised you didn’t include nail polish because I constantly get compliments on mine. Mint paired with black is so pretty and I like it with salmon/coral hues as well.

  7. Love! Those earrings are devine and I think I’m going to hunt them down and make them mine ;) Also, where do I sign up for a bathroom that’s so large I can put my claw foot tub at an angle, smack-dab in the middle of the room, and yet strategically placed in front of the fireplace. Dreamy.

  8. Oh I LOVE mint chocolate chip ice cream! and I would kill – murder someone in cold blood – for those mint green sandals. LOVE them.

  9. Ummm……LOVE! I really adore how mint can seem so vintage and modern at the same time (especially with the black&white). I live in a 120yr old house, and touches like this are JUST what I need!

  10. so, must say, I totally adore you and your taste!!! and p.s., I definitely bought those mint green shorts from J.Crew _I’m pale as all get out and if I can deal (maybe I can’t, hah!), so can you. And then… my boyfriend bought the boy versions. So fratty… Now we have to coordinate to make sure we don’t match…Buy them! Wish I had some mint chocolate chip ice cream now…Thank you!

  11. LOVE this as a nail polish too! Similar to Mermaid Tears mentioned above (kinda reminds me of the perfume name “Child” you mentioned in your No Regrets Post!). I picked this Essie color this past Saturday (can’t remember the name though):

  12. Love the mint/Tiffany blue. I hope it starts to seep into the design world soon! Love your blog and your honesty about your struggles in life. It’s part of what I want my blog to become and it inspires me to keep going! Reality + Beauty. Keep it up.

  13. Makes me want to go to Claridges wearing those sandals and order mint chocolate chip ice cream which I proceed to drip all over my mint green dress. Of course I will have some Shout Wipes which I shall pull out of my gorgeous mint purse—-and then I shall return home to that GORGEOUS minty kitchen. Love it all!

  14. This post was so visually refreshing! I really enjoyed the image of the Living Room. The juxtaposition of traditional architecture, paneling, and the marble fireplace with the modernity of the egg chair, and the rawness of the skin rug. Fabulous!

  15. so refreshing post!! love those irregular mirrors in the dining room! whimsy beauty idea!.. plus.. need to e-mail those gift boxes to my husband.. I want him to surprise me with that little great gift box..

  16. I think we could all use a little mint-spiration in our lives!
    There is a house I pass every morning on my walk to work that is painted mint green with white trim, so gorgeous and the owner has MNT on the number plates of their car. Now that is dedication to verdigris!
