It’s a little bit blue and a little bit green, but more like something in between. The many hues of Mist are popping up all over and it’s a trend you don’t want to miss.
Despite our affair with pale grey or even taupe, if you are a fan, this light airy color could be just the perfect shade to make you move on. Shades of Mist range from softened blue grey to tinted minty green. These colors wash over you like spring and summer by the sea and are meant to take you there.
Want a Mist fix fast? A little paint will do the trick. At Jigsaw, our designers like using Mist by Neptune as seen on the cabinets in the kitchen below. It’s ultra soft green tones feel like a fresh take on grey in the kitchen. Another favorite is Love-In-A-Mist by Martha Stewart Living Paint color featured in entry of the home below. The color is crisp and contrasts well with the natural tones in the rest of the entry. Other shades we love are Mountain Mist featured in the powder room, and Silver Mist in the asymmetrical living room. The latter have more of a blue grey tone that is an easy transition from your typical grey.
Accessories are always an easy way to update with a trend that you don’t want to be married to. Throw pillows and rugs are an inexpensive way to add the trend. Printed pillows like these by Windsor Smith in Pelagos Mist, and the rug from homedecorators.com in Mist are a great solution for a short time commitment.
You are sold on the color Mist and are looking for more of a commitment…splurge and go for a soft Mist chair like this one at Joss & Main. The soft color and minimal lines could easily work in a bedroom or dining room for a tranquil vibe. Try an overall retro-beachy look like this space with Mist painted cane chair, trunk and accessories placed throughout the room. This look will surely make you feel like you are on vacay every day!
If you have a little time on your hands and are up for a DIY project, simply paint an existing chandelier, frames or side table in your favorite Mist shade. Recover a chair or stool to add a burst of mist for an instant room refresher.
