Even though we are halfway through 2020 I just got an email that was telling me how Aqua Menthe is the trending color of the year. Not sure who determines this but I took a browse at some images that have that color and It looks pretty nice. From Shutterstock: "In web design, Aqua Menthe is an ultra-bright and vivid mint-green hue, with the hex code #7FFFD4." What do you think about it? Would this look good on a WindowBlinds skin or Curtains theme?
