Style tip: Calm and soothing sage works best when in harmony with other earthy tones. For a cooler feel, introduce blue-grey hues into the mix, or for more warmth, choose dusky pinks and mauves or creamy coffee and caramel tones, like this Venetian Portico Aura matte emulsion, £28 per 0.94 litres from Benjamin Moore.
