Sage geen is a green that has a large dose of gray in it. It’s different from other greens because the added gray gives it a more muted tone, and it’s also very calming. The best way to judge if a color is good for you then you will want to put a swatch on the wall and look at it over a few days.
You can do this by getting a sample from the paint store and using a brush to put it up on the walls, but then you are left with a can that you can’t do anything with. Those samples are used with poor-quality paint and aren’t meant for use on your walls permanently. They are a company that will send you a 12X12 peel-and-stick swatch of a paint color that you can stick to the wall.
I particularly like to use this color in bedrooms and bathrooms because it is so calming but it also looks amazing on furniture and cabinets. My daughter is doing a little makeover in her room and we did an accent wall of sage and it’s gorgeous!
Stay tuned for the color we used and an in-progress shot of it in her room. Soft whites and lighter grays go really well with sage green. I personally used SW Pure White with a sage on the walls but I also think BM Chantilly Lace is a great choice. The Best Sherwin Williams Sage Green Paint Colors
This color has an LRV of 41 and while it’s green and gray I also see a touch of brown which gives it an earthy feel. Evergreen Fog has been named Sherwin Williams color of the year for 2022! It is a gorgeous sage that is a bit on the darker side with an LRV of 30. Clary Sage is very similar to Benjamin Moore Oil Cloth. This color was named appropriately because it has the feeling of sea glass and sandy shores with the water coming up over your feet. Coastal Plain has an LRV of 37 so it’s a tad darker but the calm and relaxing feeling it gives you is so worth it!
Retreat is the darkest color we will discuss today but it’s probably one of my favorites! Acacia Haze is a tad greener than gray and as you can see really lightens up in a room with ample natural light.
I love it and feel like this is the perfect color for a bedroom, especially a nursery. But as you can see this color has a touch of blue in it which makes it cool and wonderful!
