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.

Sherwin-Williams Evergreen Fog (SW 9130) was their 2022 Color of the Year. This subtle shade of sage green is lovely painted on an accent wall, particularly walls with a millwork application such as the headboard accent wall in this bedroom by Ranch on a Pie.

Sherwin Williams Evergreen Fog (SW 9130) is such a lovely shade of green, and I actually really love all of the colors on this color strip 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 even serve 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.

Sage green on your walls is calming and soothing, and breathes new life into your room without being too loud. It’s the perfect balance of comfort and style, giving your space a cool, relaxed feel that’s just super easy to live with.

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.

Conservative Gray will read a little more like a gray on the walls with a slight green undertone. Austere Gray will have a little more color weight.

I thought it would be fun to put together some mood boards with color combinations you can use with sage green.

Sage Green with Navy

These two colors create a color scheme that’s both calming and sophisticated. The soft, earthy sage green serves as a peaceful base, while the deep, rich navy adds a dash of elegance and depth. It’s a combo that feels both grounded and luxurious, perfect for any room that needs a dose of cool, relaxed style.

  1. I’m glad you shared the Kindred Interiors blog with cabinets in these colors. I fell in love with Sherwin William’s October Mist as soon as I saw it at our home improvement store and have been planning on using it for my cabinet painting project in a few weeks. My husband said it was too “moody” of a color to use in the kitchen, but I’m going to show him this blog post and I’m pretty sure it will convince him to just go with it haha!
