The Colour Sage: 5 Ways to Get the Look


by Milly

Reinvigorate your home with the colour of the moment – Sage. Taking its cue from nature, this earthy colour palette is both subtle and refreshing. Here are five ways to work the colour into your home.

1. Go Wild

Take a leaf out of Ideal Home magazine and team a sage coloured wall with a statement leaf print. For paints we like Vert de Terre from Farrow & Ball or Mellow Sage from Crown.

If you’re not ready to put your painting overalls on, create a similar look by teaming botanical prints with green antique jam jars and wild foliage.

2. Add a Dash of Sage

Featuring Vogue Illustrations

To add a subtle infusion of Sage in your home pick a key piece of furniture and paint it green. Here we’ve paired an upcycled vintage dresser with a collection of illustrated Vogue covers to make a fashionable feature.

3. Create a Gallery Wall

For a refreshingly modern look, create a gallery wall of mix-and-match prints on a Sage backdrop. Stick to pastel prints to avoid colour overkill and complete the look with an eclectic mix of patterned accessories. Try roddy&ginger for colourful hand screen-printed cushions.

4. Go Retro

T is for Table by Ladybird Books’

There is something inherently nostalgic about the colour Sage. And if there’s one illustrator who knew how to work the colour it was G. Robinson – the man behind the iconic Ladybird ABC and 123. Our collection of Vintage Ladybird prints beautifully colour match these originals and make a beautiful statement for an fan of mid-century cool.

5. Contrast with Monochrome

We adore this look created by stylist Krakvik D’Orazio. A fusion of layered green tones, lifted by beautiful monochrome accents. Explore our monochrome art prints, or get this look with a Warhol Stockholm poster complete with a natural ash box frame. The overall effect? A cool, calm interior.
