I have sage green furniture (sofa/loveseat/chair/ottoman.) The walls are tomato red and I want a lighter color. I have oak trim throughout the whole house. What color would go well that is a neutral/light color?

Tan, taupe, peach or yellow. Select a light tone of whatever color you decide on.
A light terra cotta would be awesome!
I also have a large sage-colored couch, and my walls are a taupe-like color. The actual paint color was called weimaraner - like the dog. If you look up that, you'll see the color.
But I like the idea of light terra cotta!

We recently purchased a sofa set that is sage green. What wall colors, other than white, would go well with the sage? This is our first home so we are kind of stuck!

Try lavender and cream.
Soft beige/tan would be my choice. Go to a store like Home Depot and bring home a bunch of paint sample papers. They come in decent sizes these days and hold them up against your sofa. You want to sofa, pillows, rugs, draperies, lamps, etc. to bring the color into the room. If you stay with neutral walls, every and any color accessory will go. Go to the HGTV website and search around for paint colors, room colors. You will get some fantastic ideas, free! If you make a mistake, don't worry, it's only paint. As long as the colors are light, you can paint over if you change your mind. Have fun.
Try pale grey. Your best bet is to get the free paint samples, lay them on the sofa and view in all lights, then start eliminating over a few days. with the final few, tape to the wall and look at them again. You will find the final color
I think that a very pale yellow or a coral would look nice with the sage. Gray accents would go with either color.
My walls are blue, the drapes are cream with a hint of blue and sage and I wanted to purchase a sage sofa. Do blue gray walls go with a sage sofa?
The colours will go together wonderfully but the look might be a little on the 'cold' side so warm things up with rust reds and browns in your accent pillows and knick-knacks.
Yes, Sage will definitely work. This is a lovely color combination/ compliment to what you already have going on in your living room. I might even be tempted to bring in some yellow(s), buttery yellow would be nice, for my accent pieces i.e. throw pillows, flowers in vases, etc. Also, mango or papaya or pumpkin colors would be nice for accent with this color scheme or all three; yellow, mango, papaya, pumpkin. Send a photo when complete. I would love to see the finished product. Happy decorating! Enjoy!
I think it would go together very well also. I agree with the above post to add a splash of bright colors as a bit of surprise.
