When looking for colors that go well together, it can be difficult to match exact shades. Mint green is one of those colors that can be touchy to work with. You definitely don’t want your space looking cheap.
There are a few colors that are safe to add to mint green and will actually make the green look even better than before. Let’s take a look at some amazing safe and bold choices that work almost every time.
Which Colors Go With Mint Green?
There are a lot of colors that go with mint green and frankly, you can add any color that pleases you with mint green. But there are only certain complementary colors for mint green that are consistent.
If you want to go bold and find something unique, then you should probably customize your own look rather than follow a guide. But if you want something that is tried and true, then here are your safest options.
Let’s face it, white goes with everything and there isn’t a bad color for it. But there’s something special about mint green and white. It is crisp and clean. They bring out nature’s best in each other by making the room feel minty fresh.
Just be careful that when you use white that the white isn’t dingy or else it won’t have the same effect. Also, ensure the green is green rather than minty blue-green, or else it could have a toothpaste effect.
Light to medium blue is calming mixed with mint green. This blue is a great addition to a lot of different colors but this exact combo has a special effect. It can be touchy so be careful though when using them in your house.
Don’t let the blue outweigh the green and try not to keep them the same. The blue should be an accent color unless you actively choose otherwise. Be conscious of your color choices, first and foremost.
This may be the best combo of all. Rosy pink is a wonderful color made even more wonderful by the minty green color of a painted pink rose stem. That’s why the two work so well together because it looks natural.
In art, rose petals are usually painted a light blush pink, and the petals a minty green. So these two together really are a work of art. Use them in any room in the house to enhance the apparent value of the room.
Different shades of the same color can work really well together. Forest green and minty green are two of those colors. The two offset each other with the green base balancing them out and adding cohesion.
Just be careful with adding any more than three or so greens together. Add more and you may end up with a room that looks more like a sample box than anything else and it will look like you couldn’t decide on a green.
There is a very light blue that can work even better with mint green than baby blue. This is a type of blue that looks like white from afar but the closer you get the more unsure you are of the true color.
It’s only when you get up close that you realize there is a hint of blue in this tasteful color. These two are magical together and are much better in person than viewed in a picture or a TV show on HGTV.
Chartreuse is a rare yellow-green color that can be very attractive. It isn’t used often because a lot of people don’t know what to call it. But this color is unlike any other despite being labeled other things far too often.
However, when using chartreuse, you have to be careful not to accidentally change the shade into a brown-green instead of a yellow-green. This can result in a less than pleasing color that resembles other things.
Hints of beige can go very well with mint green for a sophisticated combo. Beige itself is not a touchy color and it is often used as a base for a room because of this. But it works very well with mint green.
Although any shade of green can work and any amount of beige can work, a medium to light green is better. It is also better to limit the beige use instead of using it as the primary color with green added.
If the mint green is more blue than green then you can pair it with coral, one of the best colors to complement blue-green. This works much better if the two colors are bolder or brighter as coral is overpowering.
Using a pale color with coral will only ensure that the color is overwhelmed. The only exception is a light blue because blue is one of those colors that can work well with any other single color, coral included.
The shade of yellow in particular isn’t important, but staying away from the boldest neons is a good idea. Instead, stick with an old-fashioned yellow. When you do yellow, you can also pair numerous other small colors too.
A handmade quilt of many colors is a wonderful way to showcase the other colors by using more yellow than other colors but still include a good variety. Use mint green as wall colors or furniture colors for this design.
Lavender is one of those colors that goes really well with many other colors. It works best when used with a single color as it is special enough that it needs to be noticed and it’s a shame when it fades to the background.
So let the marvelous lavender shine by pairing it with mint green. The two may make you hungry and be reminding one of cupcakes and macarons. But this is usually a good thing, especially in kitchens and bedrooms.
Sandy colors are easy to match and mint green makes them even better. The two together make a room look quite beachy and relaxing. You can add soft corals to this look or a soft blue perhaps. But the two can stand alone.
Since sandy brown can be found in wood grains and decor, it is a great addition even in this way only. You don’t need to paint a wall sandy brown or get a large rug to incorporate it into a design with mint green.
Yes, chrome can be touchy but the chilliness of mint green goes well with the same tone from the chrome. Since chrome is most often found in the kitchen it is recommended to keep it there when using mint green.
The two look as natural as can be together and will look like a shiny new car just drove into your kitchen. You can add an additional color if you wish but keep it faded and to the background because it can be too loud.
Yes, just because silver, or chrome, works well with mint green doesn’t mean gold doesn’t as well. Gold can look amazing with mint green even if it is a muted gold tone instead of actually metallic gold.
This is perfect for a nursery or even an adult bedroom. But don’t be afraid to use it in bathrooms and living rooms because these two rooms look amazing with gold accents when other rooms do not.
Slate is a gorgeous pewter color that is rich and attractive. It is often found in furniture and art because slate is a natural stone color. You can even get a real slate to use with your mint green but it may be pricey.
Instead, stick with the slate color for your decor and work pewter into it as well, getting real pewter figures and art. If in the kitchen or bathroom, you can get pewter hardware that looks amazing with mint green.
Most reds will do but retro red or bright red is usually best. That’s because it counteracts the coolness of the mint without adding the heat of a scarlet red. Retro red looks great because it is traditionally used with mint green.
Both colors were popular in mid-century times primarily in futuristic tv shows and movies. This is ironic considering we consider the combo a “traditional” combo, which means the combo went full circle.
Aquamarine and teal are amazing compliments to a mint green that will automatically give a seafoam look to the green. The two are another dynamic duo that can be highly customizable depending on your theme.
In fact, changing the tone of the teal or the mint green can change the interior design style of the room. So you can experiment with paint colors or decor items until you find that perfect combo for you!
