Why not add some sage to your kitchen? No, not the spice—the color! Sage green is incredibly popular at the moment and is making its appearance on kitchen walls, cabinet doors, and beyond.
And designers are majorly loving the hue, too. "Shades of green, especially sage, are great to use in the kitchen, as they allow for creative expression that doesn't overpower the space," says designer Leslie Murphy, creative director and owner of Murphy Maude Interiors. "It's such a versatile color that can be used with either warm or cool tones to create totally different atmospheres depending on your style. I like to pair sage with wood and brown tones to create a light and airy space for a nature-inspired look that brings the outdoors in."
Below, we're showcasing 21 gorgeous sage green kitchens from across the internet; maybe you'll just be inspired to jump on the bandwagon and introduce the color into your space, too.
