Feeling the need to ground yourself? Sage green, spring’s hottest paint colour, is all about letting the outdoors in. Our top pick? Jojoba N390-3 by Behr. “Green reduces stress levels—engaging with nature is relaxing, and bringing that home is important,” says Erika Woelfel, vice-president of colour and creative services at Behr. To reap the full benefits of the soothing hue, pair it with natural materials like wood, wicker and stone.

Not ready to commit to a new colour palette? Keep it casual with affordable accents that can be easily swapped out when your affection fades.
