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.
1. Use It In a Bedroom
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.
3. Accent With Neutrals
Beige, light brown, grey and white are soft neutrals – decorate with these to enhance the calming power of sage.
4. Create Depth With Wainscoting
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.
5. Texturize with Layers
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.
