Retail Design Colour Crush – Tasty Mint

While the world of interior design may still be hung up on the Pantone colour of the year for 2018, Ultraviolet, we have already found a tasty alternative, 2018’s evolution of the 2017 colour of the year, Greenery.

The 2018 edition of the colour green though is less bright and bold, and more tasty – our money is on cool, soothing, grown-up mint green to make a big impact in retail design and restaurant interiors this year.

Here are some of our favourite applications of this tasty retail interior design trend.

Mint and white work so, so well together, the mint green accents in the Watson Bay hotel bar design make the space feel so cool and refreshing – a perfect interior design to relax bar patrons with. (Photo:)

The minty restaurant interior of Les Trois marries so many trends into one picture-perfect interior design. We love how the green subway titles contrast wit the peachy leather sofas and the chequerboard floors. (Photo:)

Lolli and Pops is a candy store that looks good enough to ear itself. Minty green is a great choice for confectionary store interiors. We love the use of wooden floors here which give the retail design a very natural, wholesome overall fee. (Photo:)

Compares chocolate shop interiors are always a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds. The gold, marble and dark-grey textured elements combined with the minty wall colour make the whole store design reminiscent of a beautifully iced cake. (Photo:)

The dramatic, geometric black and white marble restaurant interior of the Romola Cafe in Spain, combined with eye-popping mint-green upholstery and live greenery give the restaurant design all the “wow” factor any design lover could desire. Once again, minty green looks so good when used as an accent in an otherwise monochrome interior design scheme. (Photo:)

The Lu Ming Tang bath and body boutique interior design pairs mint green with dusty blue and gold to create a candy-box effect to show off all the beauty products on display. We Think this is such a great interior design colour scheme to play with for a more feminine retail design aesthetic. (Photo:)
