Vintage Colors ~ Cool Mint Green and Red

I am so in love with the color combination of mint green and red this spring that I almost consider myself obsessed with it!  It is so vintage in feel that just to look at the two colors together takes me back to another era. As you may already know I have painted our guest bedroom in Cool Mint from Benjamin Moore's classic collection. I plan to add pops of red as accents, so I was just surfing the old net to put myself in vintage mode. 

Here is some of what I found...

Isn't it a fun color combination??? The mint is so refreshing and the red adds just enough contrast and excitement. I think I may have to start a Pinterest Board just for these colors!!!

Hope you all are enjoying another beautiful Spring day!!!



  1. Oh, very refreshing! Cool green toning down the red. I love it!

  2. That is just a really great looking combination. One I never saw much of before this last year. Don't you love that vintage trailer? Hope you are having a good week and your header is just GORGEOUS! xo Diana

  3. Barbara- I just clicked over and read your adoption story. I never noticed it before. What a wonderful, heartwarming story and your children are beautiful presents from God. What a blessing and a true miracle. Those babies were meant for you- you just had to travel to get them- xo Diana

  4. Barbara, I love that combination too especially on the girl, Constance!! It certainly seems like a vintage combination and so pretty. Where is that picture on your header?. What a beauty. Hope you are having a Happy Thursday..Judy

  5. I love those colors together too. Shopping for spring clothes this year I've been attracted to those colors together. :)

  6. Now, that's a classic color combo, Barbara. So beautifully retro and chic!

  7. I absolutely love this color combination!! Looks like I'm not the only one! wow...isnt that kitchen AMAZING??

  8. Following you after seeing your room over at Savvy. First, the little swan you used as a business card. Is it Lenox, I have one just the same. A gift when I registered for my wedding from the store owner. Then when I saw you picture with your Mom. I think I had the same confirmation robe! Then in your reading blog roll, I follow most all of the same blogs. I am sure our paths have crossed during our lives. Kindred spirits!

  9. Barbara what beautiful inspiration you found, Love the first shot of the girls in the dresses with those bouquets. Very pretty and classic.
