All About Mint

Lottie Manns

I have a soft spot for mint and it seems the rest of the team do too. When we started discussing the beautiful spring shade the whole team started declaring their love of many a minty item from jumpers to wallpaper. It seems we have all been shopping this shade recently so today we are sharing our favourite mint finds across all three blogs in order to provide you with a whole host of inspiration. Be sure to head to Rock My Style for gorgeous eau de nil homeware and fashion and to Rock My Wedding for the prettiest mint inspired wedding outfits.

Perhaps our obsession with mint started when we decided on the colour for the Rock My Wedding book, Your Day Your Way. A gorgeous Eau De Nil shade coupled with luxe foiling that we think looks rather lovely. You might need to buy the book if you are getting married, or for a lovely gift for anyone that is.

Interiors

My love of mint has excelled itself in the girls rooms. In Molly’s I was quite restrained and just added a few mint wall stickers to mix up the pink and gold but in Alice’s room I may just have got carried away with the amazing Flexa Play bed and shelving unit. You also need to look at their cots, so lovely. The mint is just the prettiest shade and I can’t wait to share the room with you all soon. I have been trying to balance out the scheme with some other tones but I appear to be drawn to all the minty goodness. I also purchased quite a few pieces from the Mamas & Papas co-ordinating collection. Seriously, this range is my absolute favourite at the moment for it’s gorgeous prints and subtle shades.

Only the other day I was debating with Laura and Lorna whether I should be adding some wallpaper in to the mix and my go to is the Ferm Living collection for their amazing scandi prints. The half moon design has long been a favourite of mine but this new forest collection is stealing my heart. Is mint wallpaper and a mint bed a bit much…..

I very almost purchased her this star print bedding from M&S and I’ve been picking up a few minty accessories like these sweet Little Lovely Company star ornaments. A bargain £6 and essential for a good shelfie.

For Christmas the girls received some stunning Bloomingville mini crockery which comes in the prettiest shades coupled with sweet woodland animals. You may think it was a strange gift for a 3 and 5 year old but honestly, they have enough Barbies and these get used every day. I now want to add to the collection with a few more finds.

If I had a little one I would be buying up the whole Cam Cam range at the moment. The soft mint shade is just gorgeous. How can you resist?

Toys

When Charlotte sent me this amazing kitchen for inclusion in the post I had all the heart eyes. The traditional styling coupled withe loveliest minty shade is such a winning combo that I very nearly considered repainting my own kitchen. I feel it would be perfected accompanied by this rather fetching wooden cake. You all know I’m a sucker for cake.

Not that I am encouraging noisy toys but a nice instrument set is always a great gift for little ones and this mint set is brilliant for letting them become budding musicians.

I have always been a little bit upset that I don’t have space in Alice’s room for a tipi, especially one from the amazing Nobodinoz range. Their prints are amazing and it seems like the perfect little nook for story telling and adventure making.

Fashion

Can we just start with these utterly adorable M&S Marie Chantal shorts. I mean they are too much. In fact when Lorna mentioned them Lolly had ordered them for Hector within seconds. Literally.

It seems Charlotte has also been spreading her love of mint clothing to Mabels wardrobe with a cute minty cardigan (I may also have bought it for Alice!) which she is going to be wearing with this rather nifty ice cream dress.

This minty green tutu may be slipping in with my next H&M order as I figure it would be super cute on holiday with a little t-shirt for the girls. In fact, they do an adults one so we could be all matchy matchy. Twining is winning after all!

For the littlest ones I have so much love for the new The Little Green Sheep range which features the most adorable woodland prints in the softest shades. It’s all organic too so you know it’s going to be super soft against baby’s skin. The babygro is super cute and you really must take a look at the gorgeous bedding range. I mean how cute is the sleeping bag? You might also want to keep an eye on our Instagram later on for a little giveaway.

I have also been lusting after this amazing sweatshirt with pom pom trim from the Outside The Lines collection at Next. So cute.

Finally I couldn’t not mention this Beaver dungaree set which I have recently purchased as a gift. It’s the best.

 
So there you have my favourite mint finds. Do any of you love mint as much as us or are you planning a mint theme for your little one’s nursery? As always do share any of your favourite purchases with us all.

So many heart eyes. I think E needs some of those Marie Chantal shorts too!

The Little Lovely lights are a nursery fave for us, but I’ve just realised the star is our only minty coloured item outside of her wardrobe. I might need to get that sorted. x

She probably does need them Karen, like definitely needs them! x

Mint is awesome. We’ve just inherited a second hand Wendy House and the first this I did was paint it mint green, with white door and window frame. Ronseal do a general garden paint – for anyone who is interested – that you can use to paint general garden items. Including pots etc. We used the mint shade but there’s also a pink I have my eye on to paint a few other items.. Keep the inspiration coming! Xx

I was browsing through the post with Anna this morning and she’s also a big fan of the shorts…and the boy. “He’s so gorgeous and cute. I want to cuddle him” – her words not mine.

Love her and he is rather cute. xx

Love love love. We are moving soon and I plan on doing the Ferm Living half moon wallpaper in my baby boy’s room (just on one wall) and co-ordinating it with animal prints (https://www.theanimalprintshop.com/Nursery-Art/) and grey / navy accessories. I’ve had my eye on the wallpaper for ages, I’m so excited about it! My little girls room is a mixture of pastel colours so I’m definitely getting some mint in there too! 😊 X ps will there be a room tour of Alice’s new room?! (Please!)

Reply

Oh my gosh, I have long lusted after those prints and never knew where they were from. I might need to purchase some. That nursery sounds amazing, you must send us pics. I’ll be sharing Alice’s room very soon. Just waiting for some pics to be done although I’m now reconsidering the decor and want to add wallpaper in to the mix, and those animal prints!! x

Loving all the mint inspiration!!! Its such a gorgeous neutral colour too – I wish there was more of it about when I was pregnant as we didn’t know the sex of the baby, ended up with grey and yellows for the nursery but if I was doing it again…maybe for the next one?
