This season’s big trend for the sage green kitchen only getting more popular, so move over navy blue. It’s a grounding color, soft and easy on the eye, and of course it’s drawn from nature, so perfect for now, when we are all feeling a bit battered but also looking forward to a better future. "Bringing in a complementary shade like Salon Drab to a free-standing larder unit will add an extra layer of colour. If your sage has a grey tinge, try pairing it with dusty pinks on a kitchen island or ceiling.” This paler shade of sage gives the kitchen a modern feel, enhanced by the plain, pale gray walls. Sage really pops alongside metallic touches that will enhance the warmth of the colour and give it shine, so I’d recommend going for a brass or gold finish for the brassware and cabinetry handles” says Head of Design at Harvey Jones, Melissa Klink.
Green kitchens are certainly popular this year, with people choosing calming and natural color schemes while they are spending more time at home.” In a plain kitchen, choose a pale sage tone to add artful color and lay Metro tiles in a herringbone pattern for a contemporary touch.
“Sage green is a good color choice for the kitchen, it’s earthy and grounding which means that it won’t be overbearing. We love it teamed with rustic neutrals, think vintage woods, brass and rich terracotta paint.”
An instant and inexpensive way to add sage to your kitchen is obviously with one of the best green paints, and here you can see how well it blends with these aquamarine shades for a tranquil scheme. “Sage green is becoming one of our best sellers” says Nina Tarnowski, founder and designer, Woodchip & Magnolia.
Build up the layers of color and pattern whilst sticking to a green colour palette. In a soft gray kitchen like this one, a sage green cooker hood brings a design statement and adds to the restful scheme.
“A great way of introducing colour to a kitchen scheme is through colored cabinetry and appliances.
They can create a lovely focal point without overwhelming the space and it’s an easy way to update a plain kitchen without a complete refurb.”
"Light fittings can be chosen to complement or highlight your kitchen design, from glossy metallics to textured finishes or pops of color.” says Charlie Bowles, Director, Original BTC.
