If there’s anyone who loves the sage green color trend, it’s Sarah Randall, the DIY and design guru behind @sarahellenrandall on Instagram. Here, she shares with us a few of her favorite photos from a bedroom makeover that makes the most of the calming hue – and we’re sharing a few of our own tips inspired by the aesthetic.
By no accident did Sarah choose a bedroom for sage; the green hue is one of the most calming choices, perfect for creating a tranquil sleeping environment.
Beige, light brown, grey and white are soft neutrals – decorate with these to enhance the calming power of sage.
Wainscoting, or panels on a wall, also known as shiplap, adds depth to a paint color. Wainscoting looks extra beautiful at night when lit up by sconces or table lamps, where the light casts shadows and extra dimension to the color.
As a finishing touch, bring in decorative layers. Here, decorative wall baskets add a rustic finish to the sage green backdrop, while an upholstered headboard and layered throws soften the space.
