Considered nature's most perfect food, would you believe milk can also fuel inspiring interior design ideas? I'm looking to dairy for delicious home inspiration, with an emphasis on rich tones of cream that will tempt even the most lactose-intolerant to add a little lusciousness to their surroundings. — Lori from automatism
Inspired by Scandinavian milking stools, this table light, by Danish Norm architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, adds warm mood lighting to your home. I love the fusion of old and new design.
Originally designed by Kaj Franck in 1952, the Teema Milk Jar has a timeless design that would look just as good holding oil or balsamic vinegar as it would milk and cream. I love its sleek simplicity.
Dating back to the 1930s, this lovely vintage milk truck is made of die-cast metal with white rubber tires, and comes complete with two milk cans in silver. This would make an original baby shower gift, or it would look good as part of your home decor, tucked onto a bookshelf.
The design of this elegant chair by Hiromichi Konno reminds me of milk splashed into a glass — the shape evocative of movement and bubbles. It is available in six colors and it's designed to be fully recyclable too.
This lovely 19th century salt-glazed milk crock is a little time worn, but that just adds to its charm. Its warm patina would look wonderful contrasted with a leafy green plant. It would also work for organizing your wooden spoons in the kitchen.
Designed by UM Project as a complement to their very popular Milking Stool, the Candy Table retains the classic structure of the stool, but broadens it for a playful take on an accent table. I love this one.
Made from stainless steel, this milk frother is not only a snap to clean, it's ecofriendly too as no batteries are needed. You'll be whipping up a delicious cappuccino, mocha, latte or hot chocolate in no time!
Can't sleep? Sip your nighttime hot milk from one of these delightful mugs and you'll be having sweet dreams in no time. Made in the Oroshi region of Japan, you can choose from four designs: Giraffe, Koala, Owl or Panda.
Inspired by vintage milk packaging and midcentury Finnish design, this charming hand-screened tea towel by illustrator Maria Tolvanen (in collaboration with Mjölk and Finnish company Kauniste) would perk up the gloomiest of kitchens.
Originally used as a perfume decanter, this tiny 5-inch-tall milk glass piece would look great as a bud vase or simply used for display. I can see it as part of a pretty still life on a table or mantelpiece.
Add a little Old Master kitsch to your decor with this playful Milkmaid Pullover, designed to work as a slipcover for the original Fatboy bean bag. It's perfect for art lovers who don't take themselves too seriously.
If the change in seasons has thrown your skin for a loop, give yourself a luxurious home spa treatment with this lovely milk soap. Unscented and handmade by cold process, it's designed to be beneficial to those with skin inflammations. And it'll look pretty in the soap dish too!
