Have you been wondering what’s up with all the sage green paint color? Sage green seems to be all the rage!
If you keep up with paint color trends, you’ve noticed several major paint companies have introduced a shade of sage green as their 2022 Color of the Year. I don’t remember ever seeing such uniformity across all the brands before!
Sherwin-Williams introduced Evergreen Fog (SW 9130).
Benjamin Moore introduced October Mist (1495).
Pittsburg Paints introduced Olive Sprig (PPG1125-4).
Sage green is a combination of gray with a heavy green undertone. It’s is kind of magical, because it can work in traditional interiors as well as contemporary designs. While sage green has a good amount of gray in it, it’s a warm color, but stays fresh and current by not trending too yellow.
How to Use Sage Green Paint Colors in Your Home
Sherwin-Williams Evergreen Fog is lovely on an accent wall, particularly walls with a millwork application such as the headboard accent wall in this bedroom by Ranch on a Pie.
Or the shiplap walls in this lovely bedroom at Thistlewood Farms.
These kitchen cabinets by Kindred Interiors are beautiful painted this shade.
My favorite of the 2022 Colors of the Year is Sherwin Williams Evergreen Fog (SW 9130). I actually really love the entire strip for this color in the paint deck. The darker shades on the strip are rich and would be beautiful for cabinetry, doors, and furniture pieces.
Is Sage Green a Neutral Paint Color?
Sage green is soft and subtle, so it can act as a neutral in your room, but it will read a little more like a color — a soft injection of color than isn’t overwhelming.
These particular sage green shades are similar in color saturation. As wall colors, I like them best in bedrooms and baths, although they would be lovely in more traditional enclosed living rooms or family rooms.
If you have an open floor plan, I would go up a shade or two lighter for wall color in your main living areas. These mid-tone shades of sage green are a bit too color-saturated for me in the main living areas of an open floor plan home.
If you move up a notch or two lighter on the Sherwin-Williams paint strip (#215) to Conservative Gray (SW 6183) or Austere Gray (SW 6184) you’ll find lovely shades for large open floor living spaces.
