Our 8 Favourite Sage Green Paint Colours

Are you having trouble deciding on the perfect colour combination for your own home? We’ve singled out some of the most popular sage green paint colours from our range for you to have a think about. 

If you’re keen to embrace a nature-inspired aesthetic, but don’t want to lean too heavily into darker green territory, Hint of Pine is a fine compromise. This versatile paint colour has pale yellow undertones, making it an uplifting choice for any room that’s in desperate need of a refresh. 

Whether it’s a living room makeover or a dining space redesign, this sage-infused shade will deliver if you’re pining for a soothing and stylish colour palette. It’s also remarkably versatile. Feel free to use it alongside other neutrals. Barely-there beiges and tarnished whites are both great choices. If you have your heart set on a feature wall, go for a more saturated sage or intense green.

If you’re thinking about a richer hue, something like Hemlock should work nicely. One of our most popular sage green paints, this eye-catching colour will look right at home in a more modern interior. The perfect pairing of sage green and grey, it’ll make a fine fit with any colour scheme that’s populated with cool tones. 

This paint colour will prove effective in larger spaces with high ceilings. Pair it with tarnished white or neutral accents, or bring in more viridian colours with blue undertones. If you’re keen to embrace more green, mossy shades also sit beautifully alongside this stylish sage.

If you’re not keen on overloading your interiors with colour, stick with a mid-tone shade like Sage Splendour. Although it’s more pared-back than some of the other sages in our range, this lush green isn’t lacking in organic character. 

A stylish alternative to run-of-the-mill grey, this sage will serve as the perfect base for colour palettes in any room. Use it in a living room if you’re looking to strike the right balance between traditional and contemporary.

When decorating more traditional spaces, you’ll want a heritage-inspired paint colour for your walls. Antique Sage is definitely something to consider if you’re eager to preserve the historic charm of a period property. 

While this sage is fairly muted, that’s exactly what you want if you’re trying to create a calming atmosphere. With its minty undertones, this sage is also a refreshing and uplifting addition to any colour palette. Stick to time-honoured accents like traditional white, or consider a more dramatic colour combination with intense black paint.

If you’re searching for a quintessential take on sage, this is the answer. Natural Sage is one of the most versatile shades in our range. If you’re someone who prefers a more muted palette, this sage will impress with its mid-tone profile. 

A coat or two of this paint will transform any space. Use it to breathe new life into a tired living space or reach for a tin if your bedroom is long overdue for some TLC. As well as being easy on the eye, this sage is very versatile. Pair it with clean whites, pale greys or misty hues.

If you’re a fan of grey or monochrome interiors, a sage-like Gentle Willow is definitely going to appeal. Although it’s fairly muted, a rich grey base makes it a suitable choice for more dramatic design makeovers. 

Are you looking to redecorate a smaller space? If this sage looks too saturated for your liking, try using it for a feature wall. If you’re open to the idea of tonal combinations, think about adding darker sages and olive hues to your palette.

Here’s another more refined sage for more grown-up interiors. Tabby Brown falls into the mid-tone category, with plenty of grey making it an ideal choice for monochromatic interiors. If you’re worried it’s too dark for a smaller space, consider combining it with complementary off-white hues. 
Failing that, explore earthy shades. Ochre, golden yellows and mossy browns are all easy additions to a room decorated with this stylish sage.

If none of the paint colours above have been green enough for your liking, Dark Sage might be the way to go. This deep and intense sage is toad green, with a hint of ivy making it an easy choice for anyone keen to bring the outdoors in. 

Because of its organic qualities, this sage will work beautifully with plants and natural accents. Ideal if you’re looking to decorate a room decked out with solid wood furniture and rustic accents.

Where Do Sage Green Paint Colours Work Best?

You can use sage green paint colours wherever you’re looking to create calm. This makes this enchanting colour family a great option for bedrooms and bathrooms. If your interiors are on the small side, stick to subtler sages.

Sage can also be an eye-pleasing option those looking for kitchen paint. Grey-infused greens are particularly effective alongside stainless steel finishes and wooden cabinets and countertops. However, you’ll need to consider the colour of your units before deciding on how pale or dark to go. 

Darker sages work particularly well in dining spaces and living rooms. Again, you’ll want to think about the textures and colours of your furniture and room accessories before settling on a shade to coat your walls. 

Sages are commonly used in south-facing rooms that receive plenty of direct sunlight. However, this doesn’t mean they can’t be put to use in a north-facing room. The right hue can enrich and uplift a darker space, but it’s important to choose something that will add warmth. Anything with yellow undertones should work well.
