A sage green sofa infuses a living room with a warm, earthy feel. If you have a sage sofa and are happy with the way it looks, you may still want to swap out some of your accessories to update the look of your living room. When accenting a sage green couch, use decor items in complementing earth tones such as brown, deep orange and rust red. Choose pieces that are both eye-catching and useful.
Things You'll Need
- Decorative pillows
- Throw blanket
- Coffee table
- Candles and candlesticks
- Plant in a terra cotta plant pot
- Large framed painting or image
Accent your sage green sofa with decorative pillows. Find large throw pillows featuring a nature-inspired design, such as leaves or flowers, as well as shades of green, orange and red. Add small pillows in a solid earth-tone color, such as burnt or pumpkin orange, mustard yellow or pomegranate red.
Arrange a warm throw blanket on the couch to give it a cozy feel. Choose a woven cotton, chenille or cashmere blanket in a color that complements the decorative pillows.
Decorate the floor space around the couch with a coordinating rug if the living room features hardwood or tile flooring. Choose a plush rug in a neutral hue, such as ivory, white or tan, for a subdued look. Add an extra pop of color to the space with a red or orange rug.
Set a coffee table in a dark wood, such as cherry or mahogany, in front of the couch for an elegant look. Accent the table with wrought iron candlesticks filled with sage green candles. Place a green plant in a rustic terra cotta pot on the coffee table.
Hang a large piece of artwork on the wall behind the sofa to create a focal point. Place a painting or image depicting a nature scene, such as trees full of autumn leaves or a garden in bloom, in a dark wood frame.
