Fresh Ideas for Your Home
Soft green is a sage design choice.
Using this subtle, natural color will add tranquility to your decor.
Going green in your interior décor can be a peaceful, gentle prospect, especially if you select a soft green shade. Sage green creates a serene, calm atmosphere. And this hue works equally well as a soft accent color or a versatile neutral.
Sage green is actually a range of hues. Some versions include a lot of soft grey, creating an almost silvery grey cast, while others are pumped up with a touch of yellow, creating an early-spring effect.
Sage green plays well with lots of other colors. As a neutral, pair it with accents of brick red, aqua, French blue, brown, violet or lilac. As an accent shade, pair sage with crisp white to make the color pop or pair it with soft grey, cream or ivory to keep the look subtle and tranquil. Many design elements also use sage green as part of a pattern, such as latticework, paisley, stripes and botanical prints.
Naturally, you have lots of possibilities to add sage green to your decor:
Painted walls and paint stenciling
Upholstery and drapery fabric
Painted wood furniture and kitchen cabinets
Rugs and carpeting
Lamps and light fixtures
Accessories such as throw pillows, vases, flowers and table linens
Tile countertops and backsplashes
Add beautiful sage to your decorating plans this year. When your friends see the results, they'll be green with envy!
