Chocolate Lovers' Series: Mint Chocolate Chip

Mint Chocolate Chip is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream and I do believe that its color plays a large roll in the love.

Over the years I'm sure you've seen tons of brown and green combinations right? Well I'm going to tweak that look a bit and show you a more “minty” version of that.

The chocolate brown in this Color Recipe is very dark, almost black. It's a very rich, very strong color so be careful how you incorporate this dark hue into your home. Here's how I'd use it:

A dark brown background will look great in any color scheme. This BR111 solid wood flooring would be the perfect flooring to contrast the minty green. 

If you're hesitant to put a mint green on your wall, try it in a fabric first. This tropical Kravet fabric would look beautiful in drapery, seating or even in some accent pillows. You call always go back and add an accent wall to coordinate the look.
