Hello Made By Girl fans! It's Brooke here to talk about my newest obsession: mint. I sure we're all aware this color is everywhere this Spring, from fashion to home decor to ice cream shops. Even when I was watching the season premiere of Mad Men (amazing!!), I spotted some minty freshness in the swingin' 60's spaces.
My absolute favorite was a shot of Don & Megan's front door to their new apartment. I love the mix of green lacquer the gold starburst escutcheon on the door knob. I'm dying to recreate the look for a modern-day home:
1. Mid-Century Wide Star Escutcheon by Rejuvenation
2. Mint Julep by Benjamin Moore
The original shot of Don's new doors:
I probably wouldn't stop at the door, either. You could use mint and gold pretty much anywhere in your home, from the bathroom to the bedroom. Here's my dream mint/gold 60's inspired dining room:
