1. Soften things up.
The cold mint hue in this kitchen belonging to blogger Tikkie Elsøe work with the white tile backsplash and wood countertops to create an effortlessly cool aesthetic. Working with Danish design company Reform, Tikkie loved the way the mint green complemented the warmth of the wooden cutout cabinet pulls and the work surfaces without being too warm.

2. Keep it traditional.
While mint green is seen as a modern and trending kitchen color, it can also be used to freshen up traditional settings, too. Choose a hue with gray undertones and you'll hit the pastel nail on the head without ending up with a palette that feels overly saccharine. Adam and Amber Ford chose a softer version of peppermint green, bringing in some classic pops of pink and brass fixtures to add an extra modern touch.
3. Mix it with marble.
4. Make a feature out of it.
5. Champion retro design.
6. Paint a feature wall.
7. Incorporate black accents.
For something a little different, opt for black hardware to accentuate your kitchen cabinetry. You might be surprised at just how much this will help them stand out. Interior design firm cityhomeCOLLECTIVE used a pale mint green to update this previously white culinary space, finishing the look with a black countertop and stainless steel appliances.
