The modern or minimalist space practically begs for bright color, even with cherry wood as the key feature. Hint at country-meets-city with Kelly green walls. Striking yellow strums a sunny, fresh-air note. If your home is Asian or Mediterranean inspired, take an adventurous color journey with bold orange walls highlighting red focal walls as the backdrop for culturally correlating artwork, tile and textiles. Before committing to any paint, sample it on opposite walls for color trueness, and to see how it visually cooperates with the cherry wood. Cherry red and green are natural partners. Cool cherry beds have a pink beige undertone that creates complementary contrast with carpet in warm greens, like olive or spring green. Soft contrast ensues by pairing a bed in warm cherry with olive carpet, while carpet in cool mint green contrasts with cherry beds of either tone. But a cherry bed with carpet in robin's egg blue has a fresh look. Medium purples are too close in color, but when paired with lighter shades, such as lavender, a cherry bed contributes to a harmony of red bedroom hues.
Throw pillows are an easy way to work sage into a bedroom. Find striped pillows in sage and white or chair pads to add interest to the room. You can also use floral pillows that focus on sage, rather than dark green, leaves and stems. Use pillows in a combination of materials and shapes to create variety while remaining focused on sage as the main accessory color. Sage will fade to the background if you use strong or deep colors, so stick to pillow patterns in soft pastels to emphasize the sage in your bedroom. Sage contrasts pleasantly against blue. Many medium and pale blues are highlighted by contrast against sage colors. Add a collection of sage and sea-blue vases on top of a dresser or along a windowsill to brighten a dull room. Sage also contrasts well against other natural colors -- such as those found in maple or dark-oak furniture. While red is opposite of green, you must also account for the grey contribution to sage when picking a contrast color. Stick to pale to medium purples and rose pinks when adding your items in your contrast color. If you use sage and blue vases, add a few lavender or pink silk flowers for a touch of color.
