While Millennial Pink and jewel tones have been stealing the limelight of late, it turns out that another color has been quietly growing in popularity. If Pinterest's trend report is any indication, sage is set to be big.

"Sage varies from other shades of green in that it really acts as a neutral," explains Maryland-based designer Elizabeth Lawson. In the last 12 months, sage interiors saw a 170% spike on Pinterest, a trend that doesn't surprise Lawson. "I've definitely seen an uptick in the popularity of green recently in interiors, and it makes sense that sage is growing in popularity because it's such a useable shade," she says. It only takes one glance at her portfolio to see the diversity sage offers: a lick of sage paint adds interest to an all-white kitchen while soft green tiles create a serene color scheme in the bathroom.
