Colors Today – Sage Green

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend. Life has definitely gotten crazy for me over the past month or so and I have felt out of touch with the design world as of late. But now I am diving back in and I am seeing A LOT of sage green!

In spite of the huge surge of warm, earthy colors exploding all over the internet, (see: Vermillion, Mustard and Millennial, Terracotta, and Wine) this color has remained highly popular. It used to be called mint and was usually paired with peachy salmon colors, sea shells, and some hydrangeas, but these days it has grown dusty and much more grown up…

Unlike a lot of color crazes these days, sage green is being seen mostly on walls and other large surfaces! It is breaking up the barrage of white walled pictures on the internet (nothing against white walls of course!) But to see this color being used so boldly is refreshing. This is due in part to sage green being such a soft and delicate color. It wont overpower the other colors, or darken the room. It is also style ambiguous! It is not only paired with scandi design, but also with french provincial, and traditional styles.

Sage green loves to be paired with warm wood tones (opposite to it on the color wheel) as seen above. It also does very well being paired with a dark forrest green:

Which fits with the trend of mixing colors in the same hue but with different tones as a way of creating contrast.

Here are some of my favorite ways that I see sage green being used in design these days:

Want to incorporate sage green in to your home? As always I suggest starting small, to make sure you like it before you commit to a whole wall, sofa, or other piece of large furniture. Check out some of this stuff:
