Colour we love: Sold on sage

It's officially autumn and we're already collecting inspiration for our cool-weather interior colour palette. Top of the list (next to Berry, our other colour crush) is sage. Read on for our top ideas on how to use this perfect shade of not-quite mint, not quite forest-green shade in your home, and shop our sage edit here.

Coloured kitchen cabinetry is back in a big way, with everything from deep blues to cool greys and metallic finishes replacing go-to white or timber joinery. Sage is the perfect solution for those who love a natural colour palette and want to add some colour without creating a space that will date. Image source unknown.

This serene living space is a study in sage, with the walls and several decor pieces all in tones of eucalyptus and moss. This tonal variation lends the room a calm, cohesive feel, complemented by the white bookshelf and textured herringbone floor. Image courtesy of Neptune UK.

Out of sight from the rest of the house, bedrooms are great spaces in which to experiment. In this space a half-painted wall in a rich sage tone helps to balance and unify the homeowners' collection of mid-century pieces and light, airy bedding. Image via Ave Styles, photo by Rennai Hoefer.

In this bright living space, a sage green wall acts almost as a neutral or grey - adding depth to the space and acting as the perfect backdrop for artwork and decor in more saturated tones. Image via Coco Lapine Design.

Michel restaurant in Helsinki has steered clear of the usual timber, tan and neutrals combination with the addition of this striking panelled sage wall. A colour pairing found in nature, the tan and oak tones work seamlessly with this green tone, adding interest and warmth to the space. Michel restaurant, Helsinki via Yellowtrace.

Another perfect space to play with colour is the bathroom or powder room. Here, subway tiles meet a soft green wall peppered with black and white photos and decor, preventing the space from feeling too expansive or sterile and adding a serene feel (essential for any spa-like bathroom space).

As we discovered while putting together this beautiful scene, sage and blush pink make excellent bedfellows. Stylist Allira took a sage wall a step further by adding a textured finish. Deep olive cushions on the bed stop the blush from looking too sickly-sweet and a textured rattan headboard completes the look.
