    New Milk Paint Colors: MMSMP European Color Line!

    New colors for the New Year! Miss Mustard Seed, aka Marian, has created a whole new line of colors for the European retailers that carry her paint. Lucky for us, she's also allowing select US retailers to carry the new colors as well, and we should have them in stock in late January, early February. She's releasing the colors one at a time via posts on her blog, so we're sharing as they are available! The most recent release is called Arabesque, and it's a "soft, dusty pink." Pink is a tough color - it certainly doesn't go in every room, or with every style, but in typical Miss Mustard Seed fashion, it's really a fantastic shade that complements the other colors in the line! While it may seem a natural fit for a baby girl's nursery, I wouldn't pigeon-hole it into girly-themed decor just yet. Here's a look at the dresser Marian created for the color launch. I'm a big fan of the before & after shot, and that gorgeous quilt! Arabesque Dresser |Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint | Dusty Soft Pink | Carver Junk Company   Introduced in October {not available in stores until Jan/Feb}, Bergere is yet another blue in the MMSMP line of colors. Clearly, she's a huge fan of blue, and who can blame her, when they look this good? It's no secret that blue is not a personal favorite for me, though I am completely in love with Artissimo, the deep navy in the MMS line. Pronounced "bear-zhair," Bergere is described as a "smokey blue/gray" that may look a bit more of one or the other, depending on the light.

Four more colors are yet to be announced/released, but you know we'll share them as soon as we're able!  In the meantime, we've also created a couple of Pinterest boards inspired by each of these colors- some examples below, but you can access the full board for Arabesque here, and Bergere here.
