Sage green takes its name from the flavorful and perfumed herb. A soft and cool-toned green, this hue is a favorite of interior designers and color experts alike thanks to its calming and soothing properties. Its pale enough to be paired with a wide variety of neutral tones which gives it a minimal edge and pigmented enough to be a present power in the room. Sage rugs can blend with both contemporary and traditional styles and work as the perfect foundation for elegant interiors.

What colors go with a sage green rug?

Sage is a team player and as such works well with a variety of colors. Softer hues can lean into the gentle side of sage while darker tones can play on its green foundation and deliver more drama. “A soft palette of blues and greens can look beautiful paired with a sage green rug. For a more impactful scheme, black and white geometrics pair well with sage green,” says Elisabeth Lyons Becker, Design Director at MDI Interior Design. If you opt for a patterned floor piece, this makes it easier to identify accent colors from your rug which you can use as accents in your scheme. It will also ensure that the result feels cohesive and isn’t overwhelming.
