Color Trend: Coral + Mint

I’m noticing coral + mint color pallets everywhere lately and I love it! My obsession started a few weeks ago when I was in Target doing my regular stop in the “Dollar Spot” and came across these mechanical pencils:

Then last week I did my nails and had to go with coral. I’m not sure if it was my need for a bright color on these drab winter days or if it had something to do with seeing this color on others.

I sat down to write this post and thought I’d create some boards on Polyvore but quickly discovered the trend is well covered there!

That’s when I came across Spoonflower’s contest this week, “Coral, Mint Black and White,” of course. So I entered, of course! Vote for your favorite here.


Looking forward to warmer weather and incorporating more of this color trend into my wardrobe. What do you think about coral + mint? Any other color trends that have caught your eye?

  3. This color palette really caught my eye. I adore turquoise and orange, which I wear alot and use in the theme of my website. The mint and coral are a subtle version. So glad to see them out this year!

    Coral and mint has always been a favorite color combo of mine. I have also noticed lately that yellow is in… although it’s not one of my preferred colors.
