Gray continues to invade every space and surface of our homes as the modern-day neutral (aka beige replacement). But other hues continue to bubble up, providing options for those looking to inject a little personality into their space. The latest color trend: olive green.

“This cool, muted shade has been popping up everywhere, from our favorite bloggers’ pads to the design magazines we pore over each month,” said One Kings Lane.

Ask Huffington Post and they’ll say that sage green is always a good choice, no matter the prevailing trends. “Sage green hues are perennially popular because they work like a neutral while still adding a little color to a space,” they said. “They also come across as soothing.”

Here are a few of our favorite ways to show off your sage.
