Our homes have been awash with swathes of neutral colours over recent years. White and beige have reigned supreme, but now there’s a new kid on the block.
Taking pride of place in the Pinterest 100 list – a great place to find out what styles and colours are trending – is sage green, a colour having a serious rise in popularity. A greenish grey hue, this muted colour is so easy to get into your home but doesn’t bring with it the boring and predictable connotations that other neutrals are often tagged with. It’s the neutral for the new generation of décor.
Here, we’ve taken a look at how you can incorporate sage green into main areas of your home to create a chic décor that’ll leave all your guests feeling, well, green with envy!
Update your living space with splashes of sage
Your living space is arguably the best room to add some on-trend character, and can be done without the need for a total redecorate. For a subtle inclusion of sage green, opt for a throw or blanket to go over your sofa, or have a few scatter cushions of the same hue.
If you’re looking to go all out, create a feature wall (three walls one colour, one wall another colour) with sage green paint, or a sage green sofa would look perfect on a sanded wooden floor. You can use sage green paint to shabby-chic some furnishings too – think a bookcase or a coffee table to add that splash of colour. This will especially bring a modernistic edge to a mid-century style room.
Bringing sage green to your kitchen
Don’t let the herb be the only sage in your cooking space! Sage green kitchen cabinet doors are bang on trend at the minute, adding a stylish edge to your décor. Choose a clean painted finish for a smooth feel or if you’re looking to make a statement, opt for a rustic sanded look.
If you have a breakfast bar, add a few sage green stools around the sides for people to sit on, and behind your sink, go for a Moroccan clay tile backsplash using sage green tiles.
Go bold with sage green in the boudoir
This is your chance to really go big when it comes to using sage green in your home. For the walls, you can decorate with sage green paint – but instead, choosing a grasscloth-styled wallpaper will add a whole new dimension and texture to your use of sage green.
If sage green walls feel a bit too much, make your soft furnishings work hard for you in the style stakes. Sage bedding is an easy win to add that on-trend feel, whilst curtains are also a great way to introduce a soft pop of colour to your room.
With its natural feel and aesthetic, add sage green to your décor and bring your space to life with this hot interior trend.
