Ironstone is the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint color of the month, and it is so well named.

The name brings to your mind images of lovely white china in a variety of styles.

Here at The Maine Country Home we have plenty of ironstone.

Some is new white ware

And some are antiques, like this soup tureen.

The red bowls are not ironstone they are French latte cups. That would be an extra jolt in the morning!

The step back cupboard is 17th century so no new paint will ever cover it!
