Curator, an Irish-based premium paint collection and leader in home design, is sharing a look at three color trends that are on the rise due to the pandemic.
According to Curator sales data:
Energetic pink and purple hues have seen a major uptick between March and September.
- According to Curator’s color expert, the pandemic has led to a feeling of wanting to escape to an alternate time and place and redesign our spaces with bright and bold colors.
- The global sales of one of Curator’s pink hue, “Day at the Races,” and one of its purple hue, “Speedwell,” increased 83.3% and 100%, respectively, during the seven months of COVID (March – Sept 2020), as compared to the seven months before COVID (Aug 20 – Feb 2020).
Sales of green paint hues have increased significantly since March.
- People who are looking for a feeling of fresh and clean room, are seeking green hues. The global sales of Curator’s three most popular greens, “Fisherman’s Boat,” “Dock Leaf,” and “March Day”, increased 59% during the seven months of COVID (March – Sept 2020), as compared to the seven months before COVID (Aug 20 – Feb 2020).
The need to feel safe is on the rise in the form of neutrals with some of Curator’s most popular neutrals increasing in sales between March and September.
