When you can’t bring yourself to do another puzzle and you run out of bread-baking supplies, there’s always paint. The simple act of covering a wall or updating a piece of furniture alone feels like an escape, and it definitely doesn’t hurt when the name of the product matches your mood.

In the past few months, orders for its earthy pink, 36 Hours in Marrakesh, and dark blue-green shade, Saturday on Sunday, have spiked 800 percent (both have even sold out four times).
