Looks like our passion for Millennial Pink is fading away, but there’s no reason to fret, as Neo Mint is already here to see us into 2020 and beyond. According to the trend forecasters and colour experts at WGSN and Coloro, this new gender neutral colour is now the perfect pastel pick for our home interiors as we move into the next decade.
“Neo Mint is an oxygenating, fresh tone that harmonises science and technology with nature,” explains Jane Monnington Boddy, WGSN’s Colour Director. “It has a cool, futuristic tech feel, but also connects with plant life and nature.”
Green is the colour of growth and well being, so goes our everyday understanding about the psychology of colours, thus Neo Mint is set to provide us with a sanctuary in our homes, effortlessly soothing away the stresses of modern day living.
Also, thanks to its gender neutrality, Neo Mint is ideal for colouring your bathroom, kitchen, guest bedroom or home office. Shoppers can therefore expect to see this refreshing pastel shade of green featuring on more cushions, curtains, duvet covers, furniture, towels, vases and wallpaper in the months ahead.
Wondering where you have seen Neo Mint before? Kanye West wore a Neo Mint Louis Vuitton suit at rapper 2 Chainz’ wedding in Miami last summer.

What The Interior Design Experts Say…
“Of course it’s not the first such colour trend. If we cast our minds back to Victorian times, there was a similar mania for vivid shades such as Scheele’s Green and Paris Green.”
Emma Tucker at Creative Review
“Colour trends, WGSN’s Jane Monnington Boddy said, have a trickle-down effect. What is seen at an interior during the Salone del Mobile in Milan may not hit the high street for another couple of years. Like all trends, it will evolve and grow. Neo Mint has the softness that Millennial Pink had. It can be translated into any type of design.”

“Everyone’s talking about Neo Mint – the pretty green that’s fresh and exciting.”
“If you’re an early adopter, you might like to know the colour currently being heralded as the ‘it’ shade for 2020 is a colour named Neo Mint. So where to use in the home?”

“It looks like a stick of Spearmint gum that’s just been unwrapped – and feels as fresh.”
