Guest Post: Mint Condition Kitchens
Not sure when I would find the time to paint my kitchen since it took every second of my "free time" today to assemble this blog post, but a girl can dream ... and I have been dreaming of a mint-colored kitchen with white cabinets and sweet vintage dishes and pretty pops of easter egg colors. Maybe it's Nashville's dreary, evil, soul-less, freezing rain that's driving me into the arms of spring?
The real question is: What's the perfect minty paint color? I've spent obscene amounts of time online recently "researching" this matter. Benjamin Moore has baffled me with its array of mints; three of my frontrunners can be found below, along with snapshots from lots of bright and dreamy kitchens.

I've also been thinking a lot lately about color flow--a concept that was foreign to me until a few weeks ago. Benjamin Moore writes about it on their site, but it was The Decorologist's lovely home, which repeats the same paint colors throughout, that introduced me to the importance of color flow. I've got lots and lots of colors here at home, but none of them are flowing. I didn't know they needed to flow. But they totally do! They need to! I'm going to make it happen, y'all.
So I want to know: Have any of you undertaken painting your kitchen cabinets? It seems like an impossibly large task because there's not only the outside to paint, but, you know, the inside, too.
