This time last year I blogged about this stunning blue collection from Milk Farm Road and I’m thrilled to be blogging about the store’s new collection today. Milk Farm Road’s owner Heather Chontos refers to her aesthetic as ‘modern farmhouse’ – a look that comes through in the assortment of products in her latest collection. Pulling from her experiences as a prop stylist and art director on shoots for British and French Vogue, Heather’s pieces combine fine art details alongside flashes of modernity, such as the neon paint dipped antique pickling jars (a Mr. Bazaar favourite!). Personally I love how Heather combines bold hues with vintage pieces packed full of character and charm – just check out this colourful art she made from old pages inside a 1920’s Parisian magazine. Beautiful, aren’t they? A great fusion of old and new. What’s catching your eye from Milk Farm Road’s latest collection, friends?

  1. I love the hand-painted tableware pieces and the dipped spoons. Great collection!

  2. Hi Will. What a great idea, “modern farmhouse”. I love the old wooden spoons dipped…Mel x

  3. Great post Will! I love the pretty pastel colours of the wooden spoons and forks. I will be looking out for more ‘modern farmhouse’ style.

  4. Great post and beautiul pieces. It’s making feel like going to those paint your own pottery shops scattered throughout London, to create my own unique piece – if only I had time 🙂 x

  5. Vintage + colors – that’s me! I love the tableware! Will and Geraldine: Those “paint your own pottery” shops are fun, but I think supporting talanted designers and their business by purchasing their items is sometimes even the better choice. (says a passionale crafter but even more passionate supporter of small creative businesses!) Let’s leave the pottery painting to kid’s bithdays 😉

    • @Lena – Thanks for stopping by! Often the businesses running the pottery classes are also small biz owners and they need our support just as much as designers with small businesses, so I think it’s good to support lots of different areas.

  6. Thanks for replying Will, good point you’re making here, true. That’s why I’d choose it for the kid’s birthday, hehe! And I know both you and Geraldine are BIG supporters of small creative businesses, don’t get me wrong! As always – there’s not just one way to look at it, I guess…
