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.
Light wall colors -- creamy ivory, almost white, barely yellow, light caramel -- provide an ideal backdrop against medium-tone cherry bedroom furniture. As the cherry wood ages and darkens, the color contrast between the light walls and dark furniture becomes more striking. Create a focal point by painting an accent wall in sage green. The red tones of the cherry wood and the muted green feature wall visually balance each other nicely because red and green are opposites on the color wheel, making them complementary decorating hues. Layered window treatments add function, style and texture to a bedroom. Install window shades that are woven from natural grasses, wood or reeds with a hint of red to enhance your cherry furniture with an earthy texture. Hang curtains in front of the woven shades to create a layered, stylish appearance. Select white sheers to brighten medium cherry tones with a light, breezy feel or choose silky lined draperies in muted green to heighten the furniture's elegant appeal with luxurious fabric in a complementary hue.
