Ireland boasts a number of breathtaking views in all corners of the country. It is known for dramatic mountainous coastlines and gorgeous valleys. General Paints has been Ireland’s leading paint brand for over sixty years and created Curator, the Irish Design Collection as a tribute to the colors and textures inspired by their home country of Ireland.
The Irish Design Collection was crafted through a collaboration with 29 artisans and designers found in Ireland, carefully working to curate a palette of 144 colors that capture the spirit and life of the Irish culture. Curator Paint offers homeowners and designers the opportunity to create a story in their designs through color inspired by art.
Curator Paint comes in five unique finishes, each with different qualities to express different characteristics of the colors.
