Charcoal, this darker neutral is one of the most versatile of the bunch. Pair is with other easy foundation tones or any shade of pastel. The most modern neutral, charcoal gray looks great in dining rooms, living rooms and even nurseries. Here's how to use it best. Charcoal gray may be a neutral, but it's also a statement. It's bolder than its lighter brethren; more modern than its neutral cousins, the beiges; and less dramatic than black. True gray (or achromatic gray) is a mixture of black and white. It has equal values of red, green and blue (RGB), and thus no hue. Off-grays — what we most often use in decorating — have very subtle but important differences in the values of red, green and blue. Cool grays are noticeably blue, green or violet. Warm grays are noticeably pinkish or brown and may have yellow tones.
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.
