Best Mint Green Paint Colors
Here are my favorite mint green paint colors!
It’s very important to swatch colors on your wall to be sure they look good – day and night – in your actual space before committing.
Benjamin Moore Minty Green (2042-70)
A light and refreshing mint green that evokes a sense of calmness and cleanliness, perfect for creating a serene and airy atmosphere in bedrooms or bathrooms.
This shade has blue undertones and is bright without feeling neon on the walls!
Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue (HC-144)
Palladian Blue is a soft mint green with hints of blue, offering a coastal-inspired and tranquil feel, making it suitable for bathrooms, bedrooms, or any space where relaxation is desired.
This is a slightly darker (more mid-tone, definitely not dark) option. Remember it will look lighter in bright rooms and darker in dark rooms!
Sherwin Williams Softened Green (SW 6177)
Softened Green is a delicate and subtle mint green with a hint of gray undertone, providing a soothing and sophisticated look that is ideal for a peaceful nursery or a cozy reading nook.
This is a really warm toned mint that might really be more sage, but I wanted to include it because it’s a great option if you have warm toned fixtures -floors or cabinets – and the blue-r shades are clashing.
Sherwin Williams Window Pane (SW 6210)
Window Pane is a light and airy mint green that brings a refreshing and uplifting vibe to any room, creating a cheerful and welcoming atmosphere.
This is really the quintessential mint, a true green with light gray undertones, making it easy to decorate with and around. I really love this one!
Benjamin Moore Frosty Mint (571)
Frosty Mint is a cool and refreshing mint green with a touch of blue, adding a crisp and invigorating feel to your space, perfect for kitchens, laundry rooms, or entryways.
This is a light and very bright shade. I recommend it for rooms with tons of natural light – it might feel a bit too neon in darker rooms.
Sherwin Williams Mint Condition (SW 6743)
Mint Condition is a soft and soothing mint green that exudes a delicate and serene energy, making it a great choice for bedrooms or meditation spaces.
I love that this shade is a true green – not too blue, not too yellow. It’s definitely one to swatch if you want a mint wall or cabinet!
Benjamin Moore Beach Glass (1564)
Beach Glass is a muted mint green with gray undertones, reminiscent of sea glass found along the shore, creating a calming and coastal-inspired ambiance.
This shade is super easy to decorate with because of the gray undertones and, in my opinion, has just the right amount of color to it. This is a big winner!
Benjamin Moore Baby Green (2047-70)
Baby Green is a light and bright shade of mint green with heavy blue undertones. This color can read as slightly neon and because of that is best for very well lit rooms, where the brightness will slightly wash out.
I love this shade for whimsical spaces like a nursery or a very beachy room, paired with creamy white trim.
Sherwin Williams Quietude (SW 6212)
Quietude is a soft and tranquil mint green with gray undertones, creating a serene and balanced atmosphere, suitable for bedrooms or living areas where relaxation is key.
I love the muted gray tones of this shade, because it makes it less overwhelming to the eye and really easy to decorate with!
