Color Inspiration: Ladurée's Signature Green

Tidying up my room the other night, I came across a pale green bag that at one point held an amazing pastry or two. This Parisian souvenir that's just slightly yellower than mint is in the signature color of Ladurée.

Hermès has orange, Mary Kay has pink, and Tiffany & Co. has robin's-egg blue. While I'm no fan of pastels in general, I've got a soft spot for the pale green of famous macaron purveyors Ladurée. The color seems difficult to replicate, but the the paint in the kitchen in Image 2 was specially picked to match it. (They used Fine Paints of Europe P11130.)
