Shades of green have had a resur­gence re­cently in the in­te­ri­ors world. Last year, we had Pan­tone’s Colour of the Year – Green­ery – a lush hue that teamed well with the growth of in­door fo­liage (both real and fake), from suc­cu­lents and ferns to giant palms. For this sum­mer, there’s a softer green on the scene, which is eor­t­less to live with and easy to use – sage. This green-grey colour is calm­ing and al­most a neu­tral tone. Pair with blush pink for a pretty scheme, or add more zing by mix­ing it with lime and ap­ple green. For your walls, a soft sage works well in the bath­room, with lots of cream and wood for a coun­try look; while sage on flo­raor even fauna-in­spired prints gives soft fur­nish­ings a crisp­ness you’ll love.
