Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Colors - Maine Country Home

Beautiful, mixable, chippy, fun! See all 24 of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colors. Made with pure pigment so mixing up new colors is so easy.

Colors may vary slightly depending on your screen settings.

Outback Petticoat was created with the Australian and New Zealand retailers. Marian (Miss Mustard Seed) felt that an orange would be a great color to feature in the line. It is named after the orange outback soil that would stain the hem of white petticoats of early settler women. Great imagery, isn’t it?

It’s an intense orange, but not too bright. This beautiful color gives lots of options for mixing and waxing. Deepen with Antiquing Wax, or soften with White Wax. This color would look great chipping off of a dark stained wood.

This fresh color captures the feel of a classic farmhouse with white painted wood siding, that’s nestled in a bucolic valley. Farmhouse White really is a perfect white. Not too cool, not too warm, and covers better than the other whites in the line (Linen and Ironstone).

Think ballet tights, dusty pink tutus, and pale tea roses and you’ll have a good idea what to expect from this color. Decided feminine, it is also surprisingly neutral and can go way beyond nurseries. Lighten with Linen to make a barely-there pink, or mix with Grain Sack to make it more muted.

This smokey blue-grey was inspired by the painted frames of a pair of  antique French Bergere chairs. This blue is more subtle than the other blues in the Milk Paint line, and because of that it can pair nicely with any other them. Comfortable in any style from modern to country to seaside.

A version of this warm, minty green was originally mixed for one of Miss Mustard Seed’s blogging friends. The perfect pastel green, it would go well in a retro kitchen or a romantic country bedroom. Brighten with Boxwood, or mix with French Enamel to make it more of a seafoam.

Named for the delicious almond paste found in Germany, Marzipan is an equally delicious warm neutral. It’s an off-white with beige and warm grey undertones. Pair it with Ironstone for a subtle contrast. Use this color to lighten and bring in more tan tones to a color.

Mora is named for the iconic curvy clocks made in Mora, Sweden. It is a whisper of a color – neutral, with grey, blue, and green undertones. Accent with grey, green, or blue to bring those undertones out.

This rich, stone color is named for the German word for castle. It’s warmer and richer than Trophy making it the perfect griege.

Ironstone is the closest in the Milk Paint line to a bright white. It is a slightly cooler off-white and pulls a little grey. If you want white-white, this is your color! A great contrast color that goes well with everything.

Linen is the cream in the Milk Paint line. Named for linen fabric that have slightly yellowed with age, this color has warm undertones and is a nice, creamy white. Lighten colors with Linen to keep them warm. It pairs well with Apron Strings and Kitchen Scale (and every other color in the line too!)

Named for the color of European grain sacks, it’s a chameleon color that sometimes looks more white, grey, or beige depending on the light and what it’s near. Mix Grain Sack with any color to lighten it without making it look too pastel. It also pairs well with the other greys in the line, Trophy, Shutter Grey, and Schloss.

Kitchen Scale is a rich teal. Mix with Linen to create a warm robin’s egg blue. A good color for country or coastal rooms.

A pale greenish-blue that pairs well with Linen and Kitchen Scale. Mix with either a green or blue to bring one of those colors out.

Dried Lavender is a soft, smokey purple with grey undertones. Mix with Linen to create the perfect pastel. Pairs nicely with Luckett’s Green.

A French blue-grey that has a faded quality about it. For a paler blue-grey mix with Grain Sack. Pairs excellently with Mustard Seed Yellow and Linen.

This color is named for French enamelware pitchers, and is a vibrant, mid-tone blue. Mix it with Tricycle for a bright purple, or darken with Typewriter for a more muted dark blue. It pairs beautifully with Mustard Seed Yellow or Flow Blue.

Flow Blue is a rich blue that’s deeper than French Enamel, but lighter than Artissimo. It’s named after the blues found on antique flow blue china. Layer under French Enamel for a subtle contrast, it also pairs well with Boxwood.

Artissimo is a navy/midnight blue that depending on how you finish it can look like a brighter, royal blue, or almost black. Pair with any of the other blues or Boxwood.

Boxwood is a rich, grassy green. Depending on how you finish it, it can look bright and bold, or subtle – more like a muted olive. Mix with Grain Sack to make a pale aqua. Layer under Luckett’s Green for a monochromatic look.

Trophy is a warm, rich grey with yellow undertones. Unlike Shutter Grey which is very blue, this is a truer grey reminiscent of the tarnish found on antique trophies. Layer under Grain Sack or Ironstone for a faded Swedish look.

Curio is a rich, walnut brown that is perfect to use as a glaze or a stain. Pair with a lightened Apron Strings for a classic brown and pink pairing.

Typewriter is the black in the Milk Paint line. It can look like a soft black, or a more modern black depending on how it’s finished. It’s named for the black traditionally found on antique typewriters. Mix with any color to make it darker and more muted. For instance, mix with Boxwood to make a deep olive green, or with Grain Sack for the perfect charcoal grey.

Luckett’s Green is named after the shingled siding on The Old Luckett’s Store in Lucketts, Virginia. It’s a soft, spring green with yellow undertones. It’s very close to the color found on furniture from the 1930s and 1940s making it the perfect vintage green. Mix with Boxwood to make a bright, grassy green, or Linen for a pale pastel. For a nice contrast pair with Artissimo or Dried Lavender.

Mustard Seed Yellow is warm and buttery. It’s bright without being too bold, the perfect “happy” yellow. Mix with Tricycle for varying shades of coral, or with any of the blues to make green. Pairs well with Shutter Grey and Luckett’s Green.

Apron Strings is a raspberry/coral color. When mixed with Ironstone you can make varying shades of coral.

Tricycle is the perfect red. It’s bold and bright, but still warm and classic. Mix with Ironstone to make pinks, or with Curio to make a deeper, barn red.
