Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Aviary

Aviary is a rich, smoky blue color named after an antique aviary lovingly found by Miss Mustard Seed. The color combines the richness of the blues in the Miss Mustard Seed’s Paint line, Artissimo and Bergere with the bold greys, Trophy and Schloss.

Mix it with Tricycle for a vibrant purple or Typewriter for a darker, more rich blue.  It pairs well with Lucketts Green and Ironstone.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: French Enamel

French Enamel is named for the French enamelware pitchers Marian has always admired in antique stores and magazines.  The color is a vibrant, mid-tone blue.

Mix it with Tricycle for a vibrant purple or Typewriter for a darker, more muted blue.  It pairs well with Flow Blue and Mustard Seed Yellow.

Outback Petticoat

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Outback Petticoat

This color is not just another shade of orange, because a simple orange can easily look bad on furniture. Instead, we got natural looking orange not to strong or bright. The name was inspired by a group of Australian MMSMP retailers.

This color pairs well with Linen and Typewriter.

Soft Off-White True Black


Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Eulalie’s Sky

Eulalie’s Sky is a pale greenish-blue named after the color in the sky of a cow painting by artist Cindy Austin.  Marian named the cow Eulalie and she has hung happily in her home for several years and has become a trademark of Marian’s style.

This color pairs well with Linen and Kitchen Scale.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Ironstone

Ironstone is the closest to a pure white currently in the line.  It is named after Marian’s favorite thing to collect, white ironstone chine.  This color is a slightly cooler off-white and pulls a little gray.  If you want white, this is your color.

Mix Ironstone with colors to lighten.  Obviously, white pairs well with everything!

Soft Off-White

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Linen

Linen is the cream in our line.  Named for linen fabrics that have slightly yellowed with age, this color has warm undertones and is a nice, creamy white.

Mix Linen with colors to make the color lighter and warmer.  Linen mixes and pairs beautifully with Apron Strings and Kitchen Scale.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Tricycle

Tricycle is the perfect red.  It’s bold and bright, but still has a warm, classic look to it.  When Marian was naming the red in her line, Tricycle immediately came to mind.

Mix it with Ironstone to get varying shades of pink and with Curio to make a deeper barn red.

Mustard Seed Yellow

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Mustard Seed Yellow

Mustard Seed Yellow is a warm, buttery yellow.  It’s bright without being too bold and it’s a perfect “happy yellow.”

Mix it with Tricycle for varying shades of coral.  It pairs well with Shutter Gray and Lucketts Green.

Lucketts Green

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Lucketts Green

Lucketts Green is named after the color of the shingled siding on The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia.  It is Marian’s favorite antique store and source of design inspiration, and she was a vendor there for several years.  Lucketts Green is a soft, spring green with yellow undertones.  It’s very close to the color commonly found on furniture in the 1930’s and 1940’s, making it the perfect vintage green.

Mix with Boxwood to make a bright, grassy green or with Linen for a pale pastel.  For a nice contrast, Lucketts Green pairs well with Dried Lavender.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Boxwood

Boxwood is our rich, dark grassy green.  Depending on the finish used on the piece, it can look bright and bold or subtle – more like a muted olive.  Boxwood is named for the preserved boxwood wreaths and topiaries Marian uses in her interiors.

Boxwood mixes well with Grain Sack to create a pale aqua.  Layer under Lucketts Green for a two-toned, monochromatic look.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Kitchen Scale

Kitchen Scale is a rich teal, named after an antique scale Marian once owned in her kitchen.  The scale has since been passed along to Jennylyn, the president of Homestead House Paint Co.

Kitchen Scale can be mixed with Linen to achieve a soft, robin’s egg blue.  It pairs well with Grain Sack.

Gray WhiteSoft Off-White


Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Shutter Gray

Shutter Gray is another one of Marian’s favorites.  It’s a French blue/gray that has a faded quality about it.  It’s named for a pair of antique gray shutters Marian found at an antique store.

For a pale blue gray, mix Shutter Gray with Grain Sack.  It pairs well with Linen and Mustard Seed Yellow.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Flow Blue

Flow Blue is a rich blue that’s deeper than French Enamel, but not as dark as Artissimo.  It’s named after the blues found on antique “flow blue” china.

Marian loves Flow Blue layered under French Enamel for a two-toned finish.  It pairs well with Boxwood.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Typewriter

Typewriter is the black in our line.  Marian describes it as an off-black or soft black.  It is named for the black color traditionally found on antique typewriters.

Mix Typewriter with any of the colors in the line to make them darker and more muted.  For example, when mixed with Boxwood, a deep olive green can be achieved.  Mix it with Grain Sack to make a perfect charcoal gray.

Soft Beige

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Grain Sack

Grain Sack is one of Marian’s favorite colors, named for the color of antique European grain sacks.  It’s a chameleon color, meaning it looks different depending on what is around it.  Sometimes it looks white, sometimes gray and sometimes more beige.

Grain Sack is a great color to mix in order to lighten without making the color too pastel.  It pairs well with the other grays in the line – Shutter Gray and Trophy.


Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Trophy

Trophy is a warm, rich gray with yellow undertones.  Unlike Shutter Gray, which is very blue, Trophy is a truer gray reminiscent of tarnished silver found on antique trophies.

Marian loves to layer Trophy under Grain Sack and Ironstone for a faded, Swedish finish.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Curio

Curio is a rich, walnut brown that is perfect to use as a glaze or stain.  It’s also a great color to use for mixing with other colors.  It was named for the rich wood on a curio Marian inherited from her aunt.

Pair Curio with a lightened version of Apron Strings for a classic brown and pink pairing.


Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Artissimo

Artissimo is our navy/midnight blue named for the blue and white fabric Marian used in her master suite. Depending on the finish, it can look like a brighter royal blue or almost black.

Artissimo pairs well with Boxwood and the other blues in our line.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Farmhouse White

So, what’s the big deal with this color? It’s a beautiful white and better coverage. It’s a win-win.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Arabesque

Think ballet tights, dusty pink tutus and pale tea roses and you’ll have a good idea what to expect from Arabesque.  This decidedly feminine color is also surprisingly neutral, making this pink one that goes beyond nurseries.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Mora

Mora is named for the famous curvy clocks made in Mora, Sweden.  It is a whisper of a color – a neutral with gray, blue and green undertones.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Marzipan

Named for the delicious almond paste famous in Germany, Marzipan is an equally delicious warm neutral.  It’s an off-white with beige and warm gray undertones. It pairs beautifully with Ironstone for a subtle contrast.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Bergere

This smokey blue gray inspired by the painted frames of a pair of antique French Bergere chairs.  This blue is more subtle than the other blues in our line, but still makes a statement.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Layla’s mint

A version of this warm, minty green was originally custom-mixed for Layla of The Lettered Cottage.  It ended up being the perfect green to add to our subtle European colour collection.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint: Schloss

This rich, stone color is named Schloss, the German word for castle.  It’s warmer and richer than Trophy, making it the “greige” that our customers have been asking for!
