Noticing More: Mint Green

“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.”

Pablo Picasso


Our next whirl into the colour spectrum plunges us into pursuit of hues of fresh mint. That pastelicious milky green goodness.

Mint is a colour with tones of appeal to me. Seeing bits of mint in cities is somehow visually refreshing. Since moving to Tokyo I’ve noticed that it’s used A LOT in public spaces. I have no idea why, my father-in-law theorises that Japanese people use mint green as well as other pastel colours in the public realm because they are easy on the eye and less likely to cause any offence. Sort of striking but in a soft way.

In Japan, household bleach comes in mint bottles with pink caps. I’ve also noticed this colour combination on small scale construction and renovation sites.

“I think mint is just a really soothing colour and I love mint flavoured things, particularly ice cream.”
