Painting Walls to Coordinate With Sage Green Furniture?


July 2, 2011

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!

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 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.

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!
