Cool, soothing sage is giving agreeable gray a run for its money.

This shade of green is going strong among the interior design community.  Partly, I believe, because of its versatility.

On the surface it appears to be a calming neutral color for your walls.

However, when paired with white or black it instantly transforms itself into a lovely accent color.  The ability to play up the color or let it fade into the backdrop makes it a great choice for many different decor styles.

Which Interior Styles Work Well With Sage?

When it comes to creativity, design, and expressing oneself there are no limits and no hard rules.

However, there are a few pairings for this particular color that work very well.  In this post, I’d like to review options for coastal, country, modern farmhouse, contemporary, and eclectic interior styles.


1. Coastal

For coastal or Hamptons style interiors sage and seafoam are a great match.  These cool neutrals scream beach and mimic the natural elements found on waterfront properties.

2. Country

Let sage green be your backdrop for a country-style and punch it up with a rich cranberry.

3. Modern Farmhouse

White and sage are a great pairing for a modern farmhouse look.

4. Eclectic

Embrace jewel tones by using sage and plum.

5. Contemporary

Sage and blush together is a popular option for wedding decor and works for contemporary interiors as well.

In addition to the styles mentioned above, tone on tone decor is popular this year as well.  Another shade of green such as olive green makes a great combination if you’re going for this type of look.

      I’m not sure which color it is exactly, but it’s very similar to BEHR MARQUEE Fern Leaf or BEHR MARQUEE Pesto Green. Hope this helps! ~Lyndsey

    I love sage green. What are your ideas on combining sage green and terracotta?

      Sage green and terracotta go great together. However, I would add in a third light shade to balance them out. Cream, beige, or even pale blue.
