This country double wide found on HGTV Rate My Space is perfect for all you country and primitive loving readers. The great thing about country is the simplicity and the rustic nature of the decor. Logs, wood, stone and natural surroundings are usually the foundation and natural colors like green, maroon, brown are used in tandem. Twigs and branches are used a lot as well. Nature is front and center and it goes great with a mountain setting surrounded with trees just like this home in northern Georgia mountains.

The kitchen shows some great creativity. The wooden spoons used as a garland is wonderfully frugal but a great feature for this style. The back splash is old fence boards painted and the golden-yellow and maroon red makes a statement without saying a word.

If you look closely you can see the stove vent is wrapped in copper sheeting. Small details really make a room. Look for places you can add texture or color in your own home to really give it a special appearance that is unique and all yours.

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 writes that her husband cut the letters and mounted the antique gun on the vintage board. The feathers are from a relative’s Tennessee farm.

Great molding and red and cream plaid are beautiful features in this room. The natural elements along with the vintage really portray primitive and country.

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. Handmade is a what country is all about. Using what is available is big part of the country style. Twigs and branches are plentiful in the country so why not 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. Here is a fence and a gate that is handmade from 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.

Here’s the pathway with creeping thyme growing between the stones. It’s gorgeous!

I LOVE the gate. It really speaks volumes of the talent the homeowners have. The creativity is wonderful!

I love this home. I am a country girl and the country style really makes me feel like I’m home. I just came from a weekend in Gatlinburg, TN and the country/primitive style is what the Smoky Mountains are all about. However, anything with the handmade look is expensive so making the stuff yourself is a great way to get the look for little money. 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! Here’s a few country crafts I found on Pinterest that could help you get this same look.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. It’s a beautiful style that fits well with most any home but especially those that sit nestled in the woods.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us!!! I have a soft spot in my heart for the GA mountains and doublewides since I had one back in the mid 70's when I was young. Very fond memories. This is a beautiful example of what can be done with a MH. Although, doublewides are so much like a stick built house they do not require much challenge to look great. These folks took a gem and turned it into a diamond!

    Hi Crystal, what a great property and I LOVE that gate the homeowners made. They have put a lot of work into their home to make it their own style. I used to love the primitive look and subscribed to Country Sampler, then I got away from that look but I still find myself drawn towards it when I see pictures. It's just such a warm and comfortable look. I love log cabins so the wood walls in the home really appealed to me. Great idea wrapping the stove chimney with copper.
    Lots of great ideas. The pics are from a few years back, I wonder if they still live there.

    Have a great week!

      Hi Shirlee! I loved this home the moment I saw it, too. All the homemade goodies are awesome. I used to have my home in the country/primitive style as well and went the complete opposite to retro modern/contemporary..lol..That's what I love about home decor. It can change the whole mood of a home and make it seem like a whole new home. I hope you are enjoying your summer! Thanks for commenting!

        Crystal, we're cut from the same cloth! Although I still have a soft spot for country/primitive, I now find myself wanting a more uncluttered mix of retro/vintage and contemporary look too. We've gotten rid of so much in anticipation of downsizing and moving into a mobile home and I really like the pared down look. Less to clean too.

    VERY Country! I love it! The spoon garland tickles me. Cute cute cute.
    I noticed the reversed carsiding on the walls. We did the same thing in our "Whim" on one end of the living room.
