Light Mint Kitchen and Dining Room.

For the last several years, my kitchen had rocked Behr's grasscloth green, and it was an awesome color and to be honest, it was possibly my favorite color in the house.

When I first purchased my home in 2004 it was salmon pink, and I'm sure it was a popular color at whatever interval the previous owner's decided to paint it that way, however, it just wasn't my thing.

Over the last few years I had gone to more blues and neutrals in my home and the green just didn't seem to flow with the Subtle Taupe living room color. Shame.

I decided I wanted a light mint color, given that I loved the mint in my den so much, I picked one shade lighter off the same paint card and had at it with Lowe's Valspar paint in Aspiration.

The card color looks NOTHING like you'd imagine, but SUCH a beautiful PERFECT, calm and relaxing neautral LIGHT MINT. It's seriously THAT beautiful. Here are some cell phone images of my new paint color, it took ONE coat and a day of moving things around, but I am so happy. It flows perfectly with the Subtle Taupe in the living room.
