This country double wide found on HGTV Rate My Space is perfect for all you country and primitive loving readers!
Nature is front and center with this Georgian Mountain manufactured homestead.
The kitchen shows some great creativity. The wooden spoons used as a garland is a great feature for the country-primitive style.
The back splash is old fence boards painted. A nature inspired color palette makes a statement.
If you look closely you can see the stove vent is wrapped in copper sheeting.
Small details really make a space. Look for places you can add texture or color in your own home.
The living room is another great example of using textures and color with lots of primitive decor to make the room comfy and stylish.
The “Long Guns Made Good” sign is handmade by the homeowners. The owner told us that her husband cut the letters and mounted the antique gun on the vintage board. The feathers are from a relative’s Tennessee farm.
The owner writes that this photo was taken before the molding was added to the top of the golden-yellow wall. I’m sure it matches the wood wall stain and gives the eye a continuous line the makes the 2 separate wall colors cohesive.
The guest bathroom has all the makings of a country-primitive setting.
The owners made the mirror frame, the twig tissue box cover, and the outhouse.
Primitive handmade items truly capture the country style. Using what is available is big part of being ‘country’. Twigs and branches are everywhere in the country – use them in your decor!
The owners didn’t just stop with the interior of their home. They added special one-of-a-kind features on the outside, too.
The fence and gate was made with natural materials. The pathway is made with cement forms which is an affordable way to make stepping-stones, rock formations and large pebbles for all your outdoor decor needs.
A pathway with creeping thyme grow.
The gate is awesome!
I love this home!
I just came from a weekend in Gatlinburg, TN and the country – primitive style is what the Smoky Mountains are all about.
Unfortunately, the handmade look is expensive but you can save money buy making elements yourself. Using what you have around you, just like the owners did here, is the best way to get this look at an affordable price. Plus, it’s fun to make!
