Sage Green Walls: Paint is an easy way to add sage green to your bedroom. Choose a light or medium shade of sage for walls – too dark and the room can feel oppressive. If you want something a little different, consider using sage green wallpaper – it can add texture and dimension to your walls.

Sage Green Bedding: Bedding is a great way to bring sage green into your bedroom. Choose bedding in all white with subtle sage green accents or go for an all-over Sage Green Duvet Cover Set. Layer different shades of green pillows for a dimensional look.

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Incorporating Sage Green into Your Home

When it comes to sage green, there are a few common mistakes that people make that can really negatively impact the look and feel of their space. First and foremost, avoid using sage green in a room that doesn’t get a lot of natural light. This will make the room feel dark and dreary. instead, use sage green in rooms that are well-lit, such as living rooms and kitchens.

Another common mistake is using too much sage green in one space. This can make the room feel overwhelming and cluttered. To avoid this, use sage green as an accent color instead of using it for all four walls. A pop of sage green here and there will add just the right amount of serenity to your space without being overwhelming.

Finally, avoid pairing sage green with colors that are too bright or busy. Sage green is a very calming color, so pairing it with colors like yellow or red can be jarring and not very pleasing to the eye. Instead, try pairing sage green with other muted colors like gray or beige for a more cohesive look.

🏠Marvellous wall mural transformation

We interview Cherry, from @cherry_at_home on her recent bedroom transformation using a wallpaper mural to completely overhaul a neutral bedroom into a tropical oasis!

Read the interview below, which covers what mural she used, her design style and advice and tips on doing this transformation yourself!

About Cherry

“I’m a 30-something solo buyer trying to create my own cosy home. I’ve taken someone else’s neural space and am slowing adding colour, pattern and lots of plants!”

What inspired your decision for the mural?

“I painted the guest room in a simple neutral (a mistake though I liked the colour!) when I first moved in, in 2020 suddenly I was spending all my time in the room as it also became my home office. I’ve wanted to redecorate for a while and had my eye on wallpapering the whole room. When Hovia got in touch, I was instantly drawn to the Redoute mural and the impact it would create in the room; it also contains my key colours – pink, mustard & teal.” 

Cherry’s interior style

“I love lots of different styles and my taste changes based on the style, setting and age of a property. Typically it will involve colour & clashing patterns – I’m not a coordinated person!”

Before & after

“It was a cold room and very simple, now it looks warmer and cosier but also bigger.”

Where is the wallpaper from?

Hovia – they have a wonderful selection of wallpapers and murals. I was really lucky that they were happy to work with me on a mural to run around the whole room rather than a feature wall.”

What tools did you need to do the walls?

“A tape measure and (large) spirit level to find your straight drops (even a relatively new building doesn’t have straight walls!), a large brush to paste the walls, a wallpaper brush to smooth out any bubbles as you hang the paper.”

How long did it take?

“I’m lucky that my mum is a good decorator and helped me – it took her about 4 days but I’m sure someone more experienced could do it quicker.”

What advice can you offer someone looking to have a wall mural in their bedroom?

“The mural is scaled to fit your walls so remember it won’t look exactly like the sample you have. Be confident in your choice and don’t shy away from a bold design – trust your gut!”

What interior trends are you loving at the moment?

“Stripes – they never go out of fashion, maximalism, bold kitchens!”
