Introducing new Cool Mint, the latest hue from Le Creuset. This enchanting pastel has stolen our hearts and adds a chic and refreshing accent to any kitchen. Inspired by all things cool and fresh, DECO intern Candice Lawrence introduces this new hue through hand-picked décor accessories.

Le Creuset, the inspirational and impactful cookware brand is celebrating their 90th Anniversary this year as the finest cast iron cookware originating in France. Since the founders added a fiery orange pigment to their enamel glaze in 1925, colour has been at the heart of Le Creuset, with new hues added every year as the range grows.

Vibrant colour is a hot property in décor today and, fittingly, colour has become one of the central characters of Le Creuset’s dependable quality. Their range of signature shades continues to evolve, building on the best of the past and shaping the trends of tomorrow. Launching this week, newest colour Le Creuset Cool Mint joins the range.

Le Creuset Cool Mint’s unique pastel colour gradient was inspired by the freshness of the morning sea breeze brushing over your skin, cool mint ice-creams, summer cocktails, moreish mint macarons and long lunches in the shade of blossoming trees. With instant elegance, this enchanting pastel adds a chic accent to any kitchen table and creates the relaxed circumambience needed in your summer culinary preparation.


GET THE LOOK

At DECO we’ve been inspired by this new hue and are quite excited for what lies ahead in our fresh summer colour palettes. With spring fast-approaching, we have found ways to introduce cool mint through décor accessories, texture and clever design. These modern, practical and appealing décor items will harmonise with any interior and inject a breath of fresh air into your home.

This enchanting pastel adds a chic accent to any kitchen table and creates the relaxed circumambience needed in your summer culinary preparation.

Our hand-picked décor pieces below will help you to quickly tie a room together. Try styling your bedroom, by adding an upholstered bench and a side table in a corner of the room. Adding key pieces in your accent colour will not only give you more surface space to play with but can give the impression of a bigger room, all tied together within your key colour scheme.

Colour and texture can change the tone of a room. This is a great opportunity to accessorise your space by using candles and vases of different shapes and sizes. For a relaxed, beachy feel, place a pretty throw over the edge of a bench and introduce some plump cushions with an oceanic print. Keep things interesting and change up your small accessories regularly – you’ll be surprised how effective this can be in refreshing the whole look of the room.
