Interior Report | Sage Green
Looking for a beautiful blank canvas to style your interior around? Why not try one of this year’s most popular shades - sage green. Recently hailed by the interiors world as the ‘new neutral’, sage has been given a new lease of life and is set to replace grey as the go-to shade to pair just about anything with.
Warmer than grey, sage is sumptuous and serene making it perfect for creating a luxurious and calming space. The delicate, muted tone works brilliantly in bedrooms and bathrooms or any room you’re transforming into a retreat.
Warwick’s Slubby Linen II fabric in ‘Sage’ is a great introduction to the trend; it's light in both colour and texture making it ideal for cushions and curtains which will instantly brighten a dark room. To embrace sage on your walls, Sandberg’s Sten wallpaper in ‘Light Green’ makes for a lovely, neutral backdrop. Its exquisite fresh colour works well paired with plain or patterned textiles and it also makes for a beautiful backdrop for rustic furniture.

One of the most versatile shades on the green spectrum, sage works well in all types of settings, from traditional country homes to modern Scandi schemes. In a traditional room, layer sage cushions with textured blankets and curtains in earthy shades to create a cosy sanctuary. If you’re looking to update a living room or snug, why not try a patterned wallpaper like Sanderson’s Farne Grasses with its traditional floral print in shades of chalky sage and cream.

If your space is more modern, try a geometric print wallpaper such as Sandberg’s Bok wallpaper, then add contemporary furniture in blonde oak or white to create a Nordic-inspired scheme. Alternatively, Villa Nova’s subtly textured Arriccio wallcovering in ‘Verdigris’ is a great option for modern settings. With a design inspired by aged concrete, this wallcovering is the perfect backdrop for an urban-luxe scheme – just pair with metallic accessories and raw materials for an on-trend take on the sage trend. To make sage the star of a contemporary interior, pair it with contrasting shades of pale coral or cobalt blue to really make it pop.
