Orange+Mint? Yes you can.

Over four years after I moved from Minneapolis to Seattle, my couch is finally moving too. It’s an extremely orange couch. Before I move the couch in, I’d like to paint the living room, and I really really really really want to paint it a mint/sea foam green. It seems like a fitting color for the Bauhaus/postwar modern building I’m in. Orange+mint seems like it could be rather loud, though, so I did a Google image search for those two colors. What I found was a color swatch and pattern with both colors I was looking for. And the best part? The name: “Odd”.
