All-white kitchens will always be in style, but if you’re looking for something that’s light, bright and a little less one-note, it’s time to start thinking in shades of mint. Or jadeite. Or agave, if you’re feeling fancy. No matter what you call it, the vernal shade is making a comeback.
Google Trends may not be registering it yet, but the team at Sweeten, a service that matches people with licensed general contractors for home renovation projects, has seen an increasing number of homeowners having their cabinets painted in some variation of this cool-toned hue. "Mint is a white neutral with a touch of sky and greenery," CEO Jean Brownhill says. Plus, it’s clean and modern without as much contrast as navy, and it makes brass accents pop—another trend that’s still going strong.
