Style Tip: A Scene of Sage in Interior Design
It’s obvious that the most favoured Spring/Summer season colour for this year, as predicted, is sage. The colour can also be likened to olive, pistachio, mint, seafoam and moss green - all these colours exude a serene calm, a calm that can be applied to interior design in the home by using this colour.
Predicted Pinterest Trend
This soft shade of green most frequently compared with the tone found on a fresh sage plant, first captured designers on the Pinterest annual trend report last year, reporting that there was a 70% increase in saves for "sage" decor. It’s easy to see why, as sage green is soft enough to be neutral, but visible enough to set the mood, it can fit seamlessly with nearly any design style. In luxury interior design, we have seen this colour captured in numerous ways.
Green Colour Psychology
The main positive psychological properties green communicates are peace, health and nature. It has the power to transform a space like no other shade on the spectrum by uplifting and enlivening the surroundings in which it has been placed. Green has obvious connotations and reminders of nature, forests and the outside world that can help us to feel relaxed and refreshed.
The colour green can help create a feeling of having a sanctuary in a home and it is often used in decorating for its calming effect. The colour can be placed on the walls, in the furnishings or accessories, and it can of course be nature-led by utilising potted plants and flowers, a garden or a balcony to inject colour.
