I have been looking for a perfect sage green and just haven't hit it. I have looked at swatches in the store, bought samples and tried them home but found colors that are either too olive, too blue, too grey, or too lime green/"sherbet-y." I want something that is a little on the grey side, but not too much grey...I want green, not grey.

Suggestions? Thanks!

Not sure if this is close to what you were looking for. We just finished a room in this greenish color that has a bit of gray to it....

We did our living room in a Behr color called Restful 400F-4

It's a lighter green, but not too lime colored, maybe slightly grayish. I wish I had a good daytime picture, I have a few pictures I took at night but it's tough to really see the color due to the shadows. Also, it's much less lime/bright than it looks on the Behr website. We were originally looking for something bright, but after we painted the walls it was a very neutral and soothing color. We love it.

My living room is also painted with Behr Restful. I too love my color. I have dark gray leather couches in the room and I think the color combination works well.

Thanks for the tips, folks. I'll pick up some samples and check 'em out.

Oooh, I googled Laura Ashley Olive 3 and found some photos of a gorgeous dining room painted with it - the cherry antique furniture didn't hurt the look either ... what a beautiful color!

I have Sherwin Williams Svelte Sage in my living room. It's been on the wall now for 3 years and I still love it as much as the day it was applied. We have bright white trim, black iron furniture and a dark chocolate brown leather sectional. I have a couple of pics with our old couch and loveseat, but you'll get the idea.
