Blinding Inspiration: Relax this season with soothing sage
As we find ourselves in the spring/summer season, there’s no better time than now to get inspired by the wonderful patterns and colours the outdoors has to offer. In keeping with the ever-popular natural interior design trend, sage is set to be one of the leading colours for home decor this year. Its versatility lends itself well to different rooms within the home, and means that it can be easily partnered with a wide range of other colours.
This post will look into how soothing sage has become the ‘new neutral’ and the different ways it can be applied to transform the look of a room.
Themes and complementing colours
Sage provides the perfect backdrop for most home decor themes. Its soft hue means it has the ability to stay neutral and blend with other colours seamlessly, whilst delivering a pop of colour which other neutral colours, such as creams and beiges, simply cannot do on their own.
Whether you are opting for a vintage or rustic feel in your home, or you’d prefer to inject a modern look with accents of metallic, sage can provide the all-important finishing touch. Coupling whites, browns or greys with sage will create a calming, stylish look in your home guaranteed to get your guests talking!
When applying a new colour to a room, subtlety is key to avoid creating an overbearing or unsightly look. As such, choosing sage for the blinds in the living room, the drawers in the kitchen cabinet or the throw in your bedroom can instantly create a homely, stylish look.
If you are looking for a subtle, cost-effective way of injecting sage into your home, look no further than the Diva Gossip design from our roller blind range. Partnering this fresh, sophisticated sage with an understated leaf pattern, bringing the beauty of the outdoors into your home has never been so simple.
The versatility of the colour sage means that it can easily be applied to any room in the home. As the social hub of the home, the kitchen is typically a warm, inviting space when decorated properly. When deciding whether to incorporate sage into your kitchen, it’s important to carefully consider the fixtures and furniture you already have in place. Dark worktops or fittings, such as chestnut or charcoal, can be complemented well by the addition of quality green blinds. The cool colour of our Blocklight Mint Green Roller Blind injects a subtle burst of colour into the kitchen, maintaining a fresh, clean appearance.
When it comes to the living room, many homeowners make the mistake of trying to overdo the decor when actually a subtle, neutral theme with metallic or bold accents can speak volumes. Layering together soft shades of greys, creams and sage will instantly brighten up the room, creating a welcoming, homely feel.
The bedroom is a place you can retreat to after a stressful day to relax and rejuvenate. By partnering soothing sage blinds with wooden furniture, you can escape to the country in the comfort of your own home with this tranquil, nature-inspired theme.
