In November, two new colours were added to our ColorLab colour chart: sage green and teal. This expansion of our colour range offers our customers and designers more creative options for their projects without having to resort to the colour-on-demand option.
Sage green is a soft, grey undertone of green that lends itself well to various applications in interior design. It is a versatile choice as it sits between neutral tones and brighter greens, creating a calm and natural feel without being too bold.
Applications: Sage green can be used in a variety of environments, including living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms. It lends itself well to walls as well as furniture, curtains, carpets, cushions, and other furnishing accessories. It is also a popular choice for interior design in country homes, coastal residences and boho-chic style spaces.
Combinations: Sage green pairs well with many other shades and styles. Here are some common options:
- With neutrals: Sage green goes well with neutral colours such as white, beige, grey and brown, creating a fresh and elegant contrast.
- With pink: Sage green and pink create a delicate and romantic combination, perfect for bedrooms or children's rooms.
- With blue: The combination with blue, especially shades such as navy blue, creates a feeling of serenity and sophistication.
- With natural wood: Sage green complements natural wood furniture and furnishings well, accentuating a rustic and organic aesthetic.

Overall, sage green is a versatile colour choice that can adapt to a variety of furniture styles and settings, contributing to a cosy and relaxing ambience.
Dark teal is a colour shade that can bring bold and sophisticated spaces to life in interior design. Dark teal is a deep, rich and intense shade of blue-green, often associated with a feeling of luxury and elegance. Its name is derived from the oyster, which has a similar coloured inner coating.
Applications: Dark teal can be used in a variety of interior design contexts, but it often finds a place in rooms that seek to evoke a sophisticated and charming atmosphere. It is popular in bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms and bathrooms, but can also be used accentuated in small spaces such as hallways or alcoves.
Combinations: Dark teal pairs well with many other shades and materials. Some common combinations include:
- With white: Dark teal on a white background creates a strong contrast and gives a fresh, pure feel to the room.
- With dove grey: Dark teal and dove grey give a sense of elegance and sobriety, creating a modern and refined space.
- With gold: Dark teal combined with gold adds a touch of opulence and luxury to the ambience.
- With dark wood: Dark teal can be balanced with dark wood furniture or earthy tones for a feeling of warmth and contrast.
It is important to note that brass is a bold shade, so it is often used sparingly or as a focal point in a room. It can add a note of vibrant colour and elegance to any room if used intelligently in the décor.
