Design Dozen: 12 Minty Fresh Picks for Fall

The color mint, so popular in the 1950's for its cheerful yet calming influence, was inspired by the color of an after dinner treat. Although many consider mint simply a spring color, it will brighten up the grayest of cold months and complement winter whites.
