Looking for the perfect dark sage green paint color? Here is a guide to how to pick the perfect dark sage green paint color.
I am really feeling green paint colors lately. It’s one of my favorite colors for interior walls!
Green is definitely a big trend right now – so I’m seeing it everywhere I look.
And I love it! Green can feel like you are returning to nature. It’s earthy and calm and relaxing.
Many people prefer to choose light paint colors for the walls. However, there is something to be said about a dark wall color. Dark walls can feel cozy, luxe, and inviting.
I especially love dark walls for large rooms that get lots of natural light.
I personally painted my bedroom dark green (North Woods) and love how the space feels.
Sage green paint is especially having a moment – the sage green bedroom aesthetic is particularly popular.
Green paint colors can be hard to choose – there are SO many shades!

The best sage green paint for north facing room
North facing rooms have cool toned light that will make paint colors look cooler. A cool sage might read as teal or blue. So, for a north facing room, choose a sage green with more yellow to it.
The best sage green paint for south facing room
South facing windows let in warm yellow light. So, they make wall colors look warmer and more yellow. If you don’t want your sage green to read as too warm, instead choose a sage with more blue or cool tones to it from the list below.
What is the color psychology of green?
Color psychology is the idea that different colors make you feel different ways. Green is said to bring out feelings of nature, healing, freshness, and quality!
