If there is a color that we’ve been seeing everywhere recently, it’s sage. This muted shade of green has calming undertones that work well with any decor style from traditional to contemporary. As it is highly versatile, sage can either be used as a neutral or as an accent color that brings nature inside in a nuanced way.
However you choose to incorporate it, peaceful sage green will bring a sense of zen to your home with its light, airy feel.
Use It As a Neutral
Popular year-round, sage green is a perfect neutral if you’re looking for something more interesting than off-white or beige. The uses of sage are endless: you can paint the walls of your living room, use sage tiles in the bathroom, pile your bed high with sage pillows, or add serene sage draperies throughout your home.
Add Sage Green to Your Kitchen
Both fresh and timeless, sage green is a dreamy color for a kitchen spruce. Cooking can be stressful, so it helps to have a clean and soothing environment that makes it more relaxing. Sage in the kitchen, whether in the form of wall paint, cabinets, or dishes, works particularly well if you have large windows with views of greenery as it will help the inside and outside meld seamlessly.
Embrace Sage Green Botanicals
As sage is intrinsically linked to the outdoors, our designers recommend playing up that fact by bringing more organic elements into your space. From potted plants to bedspreads and scatter pillows with floral and leafy prints, you can incorporate sage in numerous ways that nod to the natural world. To complement all the greenery, consider adding tactile textures into your space. For example, placing your plant pots in rattan baskets will enhance the organic-inspired ambiance in the room.
Create a Pop of Color
Sage can work really well as an accent because it’s not overly loud. It adds the right amount of color to balance out a space in a beautiful way. Sage accent pieces, like these chairs, help create a feeling of cohesion with the other colors in your room and add a layer of interest.
Balance with Warm Hues
Sage naturally has cool undertones, so our designers recommend adding some warmer-hued accessories into your rooms to balance out the color. Natural materials like earth-colored clay pots and light wood floors will give your space the level of warmth it needs. Warm metals like gold and copper will also create a more inviting space while adding a hint of luxury to your sage decor.
Adding Sage Green to Your Home
In your bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen, sage green adds a touch of nature, elegance, and serenity. If you’re looking to add sage to your decor, keep in mind that it pairs well with other light neutrals as well as pinks, browns, oranges, and yellows.
