The Remodelista Color of 2018: Mignonette Green

March 12, 2018

In an editorial meeting earlier this year, we were trying to define a certain shade of green (pale, grayish-green) emerging in new interiors. Someone suggested “mignonette green,” a shade named after the fragrant European plant Reseda odorata and marketed by Volkswagen for its 1958 beetle. Here’s a look at the color we’re calling the Remodelista Color of the Year.
