Is Sage Green a Good Choice for Baby’s Room?
Green reminds us of nature and promotes feelings of calmness and peace.
It’s a wonderful color for a nursery since sage green is soft and muted. Pair it with pops of white to brighten the room and create a beautiful contrast babies love. 1

Sage Green Nursery Ideas for Wallpaper
Wallpaper continues to be on-trend in the baby’s room! You can add an instant focal point to the room by wallpapering an accent wall.
Wallpaper these days are much easier to apply and remove than back in our parents’ day. Peel and stick wallpaper has taken the design world by storm, and it’s an instant solution to a no-fuss DIY project.
In our following sage green nursery ideas, you’ll see a lot of accent walls wallpapered with sage green accents. Here are some of my favorite sage green wallpaper ideas before we get to those, however.
You don’t necessarily need to find wallpaper that matches sage green exactly, since you can use various shades of green in the room. Here are some adorable options that do use sage green:
- Mountain-Inspired Sage Green
- Floral with Sage Green Background
- Sage Green Brush Stroke
- Floral with White Background
Sage Green Nursery Ideas
As we look through the following sage green nursery ideas for inspiration, you’ll notice that most people choose to use sage green as their accent color. Rather than painting an entire room sage green, just an accent wall will be painted.
You’ll also see creams and whites be the main color of the nursery, but sage green is brought in through accents such as curtain panels, crib sheets, small accents in wallpaper, etc.
One of my favorite sage green nurseries, the above baby room starts with an off-white, creamy base color and adds accents of sage green. Beautiful sage green curtain panels are the perfect touch and add that dreamy pop of color.
The accent wall is board and batten, with sage green as the bottom color. They chose to add beautiful wallpaper at the top of the board and batten wall, which adds the perfect accent to the space.
The natural wood tone in the floating shelves pairs perfectly with both cream and sage green.
Another perfect board and batten nursery wall! This accent wall is painted sage green, and it’s perfect without any wall decor to stand out on its own. Sherwin Williams “Retreat” is the color that was used in this nursery.
This is another gorgeous sage green nursery! The main color is a creamy white, but the accent wall is shiplapped sage green. Like the prior example, Sherwin Williams’ “Retreat” is used on the accent wall.
I love how the name sign is placed right above the crib. The medium natural wood looks great in a room with sage green. Also, the potted faux plant looks perfect in this space.
Is this wallpaper not perfection in this gorgeous nursery? The board and batten wall is painted a sage green, while the above wallpaper has pops of greens in the leaves. The potted faux plant looks amazing against the wall, as does the “Dream Big” nursery wall art.
We have another board and batten wall idea, but this time the board and batten is painted a bright white. The green pops against the white, making it a dreamy space.
Here is another board and batten accent wall painted sage green. I love the gold name sign on this wall; it blends perfectly with this nursery.
This sage green nursery idea is one of my favorites because it’s so easy to replicate. They used a creamy white for the main paint color and simply painted the accent wall sage green.
The wall decor they used perfectly accents sage green with its browns, natural wood tones, and greens.
I love the modern safari nursery theme, and the above photo is the perfect twist on this classic. The wide shiplap is painted a soft sage green, while the rest of the room is full of creams, tans, and light wood tones.
I am loving the cactus wallpaper above the sage green board and batten wall! It’s so simple and perfect for this room. The name sign also looks great, layered over both parts of the wall.
Another perfect example of a statement wall in a nursery! I love the herringbone design on the sage green nursery wall. Here we see another jungle safari nursery, which I’m loving.
Here’s a great sage green nursery idea for a baby girl’s nursery. Sage green and light pink accent each other well since they are opposite on the color wheel. The light pink pops perfectly against the sage green wall, adding a feminine touch to the room.
This truly may be my favorite nursery using the sage green and white color scheme. I LOVE how they went with whites and creams. They have sailboat wallpaper that looks amazingly subtle in the space. Then they bring in the sage green accents with beautiful curtain panels. Perfection.
Here is another example of bringing sage green in with the accents rather than a large accent wall. The walls in this nursery are painted white, but sage green is brought in with the curtain panels, the crib sheet, and the small details in the nursery rug.
This is a modern touch to a sage green nursery. Greens are brought into the space with wallpaper that shows abstract-like mountains. We’re seeing this design trend in boho-inspired spaces, and I think it looks lovely in a nursery.

And finally, we have another jungle safari nursery using sage green as its main color. All the walls are painted sage green in this space, but it’s muted and soft enough not to overtake the space.
Sage green is a perfect color for any nursery. It brings feelings of peace and calmness, making it a perfect color for a baby’s room. It goes well with a baby boy’s room, a baby girl’s room, or a nursery featuring a gender-neutral look.
I hope these sage green nursery ideas inspired your own baby’s room!
