Scroll through your social media feed and you’ll notice: All the interior designers seem to be decorating with sage green right now. From earthy green paint to furniture seemingly dusted in a thick coat of ashy fog, the muted shade is a rising decor trend.
If you’re also ready to give your home a sage green moment, we connected with artist and interior designer Natalie Papier of Home Ec. to understand why this color is so popular and get her tips on how to incorporate the trend at home.
As for the color, Papier who loves to decorate with eclectic tones believes it’s all about the emotion. “Sage green is an equally invigorating and calming color to incorporate into your home,” Papier said. “It evokes feelings from nature and the outdoors; equally stimulating and refreshing.”
We asked her to whittle down an assortment of 15 home decor and furniture pieces from Amazon’s sage green decor section. We found decor gems like paint, art prints, and even pillow cases hiding on Amazon’s Home Decor section starting at just $11.
