Sage is what colour?
Sage is a plant that grows in nature, and the colour sage looks like the dried leaves of the plant. It has a chalky finish and is a soft greenish-gray colour that is considered neutral. Sage is a herb that has been used for thousands of years to reduce stress and tension, calm fevers, reduce inflammation, help people relax, and improve their ability to focus. Sage has also been used because it makes people feel better.
Sage is used in these ways because people have been doing so for a long time. Sage is a colour that people use to make a room feel calm. Sage green walls are nice to look at, and they may also help people feel calmer and happier. People’s emotional responses to colours have been studied, but the field of colour psychology is still in its early stages. No matter what, a person only needs to know how a colour makes them feel to choose it for their own home. Many people agree that the colour sage is calming, so painting an entire room that colour can help create the same feeling.
How to Make Paint That’s Sage Green
As we’ve already said, you’ll need blue and yellow to make sage green paint. But there are only certain shades of blue and yellow that can be used: slate and citron. The colour of slate is made by mixing blue and blue-violet. When you mix yellow-orange and yellow-green, you get the colour citron, which has a citrusy feel.
When making sage green paint, you should first decide on the exact shade of sage you want. It can help to find pictures of rooms, furniture, and other things that are the same colour as you want. You can use these as a guide when making changes to your original sage mixture. Start by making the colours slate and citron on their own. Then, put these two colours together to make sage green.
If mixing slate and citron doesn’t give you the exact shade of sage you want, you can make changes by adding more of the already-mixed slate and citron or more blue, blue-violet, yellow-orange, or yellow-green. Add very little at a time and mix well before deciding if you need to change the colour more. Adding more citron colours will make the sage brighter and livelier, while adding more slate colours will make the sage quieter. If you want sage to be lighter, just add a tiny bit of white. Do the same thing with black if you want a darker shade of sage.
Sage Green Color Palette
Sage green is a great colour because it goes well with a lot of different colour schemes. Its growing popularity in homes shows how versatile it is. If you have sage green walls, whether they are light green sage or dark green sage, you have a lot more options for how you can use other colours to decorate the room.
For example, the original colours used to make sage were blue, blue-violet, yellow-orange, and yellow-green. All of these colours can be found in different sage-green colour palettes. Some of these could be lilac, mustard, olive, or pear. Sage green also looks great with the colour rose and the colours that are close to it. Sage is a neutral colour, so you can use almost any other neutral colour to decorate with it.
Seafoam green, evergreen, lime green, and swamp green are the greens that look most like sage. These can also be used instead of or in addition to sage because they may also help you feel calm.
Matching colours for sage green
If you want to decorate your home, it helps to know how colours work with each other. Colors that are opposite each other on the colour wheel are called complementary colours. Sage green goes well with muted shades of red, purple, orange, and blue. Using the colours that go well with sage makes a room look brighter and more lively.
Sage is a neutral colour, so it looks good with other neutrals like beige, off-white, and grey. When you use neutral colours together in a room, it feels calm, simple, and not too dramatic.
The same is true for earth tones, which are muted colours found in nature, like browns and yellows. These colours look great with sage green. Bringing this kind of nature indoors can help you feel calm and soft, like you do when you’re sitting in a forest.
Sage walls can be used as a background for decorating, but you might want to use a different accent wall, carpet or rug colour, curtain colour, and furniture colour. There is a lot of flexibility, so you can easily move things around without having to repaint the walls to match the other things in the room. For example, a room with sage-colored walls, a mustard-colored sofa, and beige curtains can feel calm and energetic at the same time thanks to a touch of brighter yellow.
