Sage and Green
Greys, whites, and neutrals dominated interiors during 2016/17. This Scandinavian design trend brought with it a toned-down colour palette with grey commonly used as the leading shade. It’s a trend that’s been hugely popular, and the perfect accompaniment to a minimalistic interior.
However, 2018 sees grey updated to an earthier tone. The Pinterest 100 list states that the term ‘sage’ received a 170% increase in interiors searches, as it’s adopted as this year’s ‘new neutral’.
“Sage is the new grey, but not sage as you might imagine it. A murkier shade has given sage a new ‘cool girl’ vibe that shakes off any dated connotations bringing it right up to date. Popping up on the chicest walls, accessories and kitchen cabinets in town, look for grey-based shades and you’re sure to choose the right one.”
Green is an incredibly accessible colour trend, and works with the same accent colours that are commonly paired with grey. So, if your walls are a shade of grey at the moment, you don’t need to worry about completely changing your accessories if you do decide to redecorate with green!
Whites, greys, and natural woods all look great with sage. The key is to keep things neutral, with a basic colour palette looking its best against this colour.
Green is also the colour of the Heart Chakra so decorating your bedroom in green goes hand in hand with ones well being and mental relaxation. It is at the heart centre where the energies of lower chakras can be transformed and integrated into a more spiritual aspect of yourself. Green is the colour of growth, life, and balance. Through balance you find the centre from which you can love, form healthy and nourishing relationships, and give and receive love. The energy of green is soothing and calming, like a blanket of soft grass underneath your feet. It is the colour of nature, grass, and the trees. As you unfold the petals of your heart chakra, you find the seat of compassion, not only for others, but for yourself as well. You begin to radiate love. You begin to sense the interconnectedness of all of life.
