Retroflow Analysis: Sage Green

Colour Analysis

Benjamin Moore

With its strong biophilic feel, this rich sage green played a crucial role in the Grace palette (Autumn Winter 2017/18). The colour proved popular for paint, as with Benjamin Moore’s wall colour and at Oliver Bonas in the shape of a soft velvet cushion. Tweaked only slightly, with more grey added in 2018, more blue for 2018/19 and then appearing once again in 2019 in a slightly paler cast, this green is proving to have significant staying power, perhaps reflecting broader trends that encompass embracing natural colours and tones, as well as evoking associations with heritage and tradition.
