There’s so much to love about sage green. This earthy, understated hue is a gateway color for diehard minimalists, an old standby for traditionalists and MCM lovers, and a palette cleanser for eclectics and maximalists. It’s just as compelling as it is comforting, making it the perfect, welcoming hue for nearly every home and style.
Unsurprisingly, sage green is a timeless design choice that’s been climbing the trend lists once again. Looking for a moody but still palatable paint color? Sage green. Need some accent pillows in your warm minimalist living room? Sage green. On the hunt for a calming piece of artwork? Sage green.
While we have a self-proclaimed fixation on warm neutrals at the moment, sage green somehow fits in with this palette as well — it’s basically the chameleon of the color wheel. Somehow, it pairs beautifully with every neutral under the sun, spanning bold black and charcoal grey to soft cream and sandy beige, as well as a perennial classic in organic and earth tone palettes.
Check out our designers fresh new ideas for how to weave this essential hue into your space, from the bold (wallpaper and paint) to the subtle (plants and pillows), and shop their favorite sage green pieces.
2. Painted pops
If you’re considering an accent wall or a fresh paint job, sage green is an excellent, understated choice. This soft green functions as a neutral while adding a touch of soft color to any space. If you’re a stringent minimalist looking to dip your toe into the world of color, your search ends here.
3. Furniture glow-up
While “green sofa” certainly sounds bold, a sage option can double as a neutral when styled correctly. So go ahead, swap your sofa or other piece of statement furniture for an earthy color pop, and round it out with complementary wood tones, light grays, and soft creams.
6. Whimsical walls
Floral and botanical wallpapers are really having a moment. Select an earthy print with a pop of soft sage to add this trending hue to your space. We particularly love using wallpaper in spaces that lean calm and whimsical, like bedrooms and bathrooms.
7. Sage green artwork
For a subtle touch of sage green, look to your wall art. From landscapes and seascapes to abstract and geometric prints, sage green artwork lends a tranquil feel to any space. Per the above alcove, green artwork pairs beautifully with golds, grays, and creams for a tranquil twist on a luxe look.
