A Modern Double Wide Goes Primitive with Country Decor
I’m excited to get to feature this beautiful manufactured home today and tell the story of new manufactured homeowners, Rachael and Bradford Boyer. They were kind enough to share their gorgeous home, what I’ve deemed ‘modern double wide goes primitive with country decor.’
This home is a 2012 Fleetwood Coronado 28 by 60.
Rachael says the house is deceiving because it looks small from the outside but once you walk in you’re amazed at all the room. Even the contractors installing the house said he was impressed with the space.
Primitive country decor in manufactured homes is popular. We’ve been fortunate to get to share several over the years but this 2012 Fleetwood is one of the newest models (this article was originally published in November 2013).
How A Modern Double Wide Went Primitive with Country Decor
Let’s start in the kitchen. The neutral walls with wide architectural trim allow the decor, appliances, and furnishings to take center stage.
Spacious and open, this kitchen has all the modern amenities anyone could need.
The wall color is called honey mustard and was picked out when the home was ordered. Being able to order a home exactly how you want it is one of the best things about buying a manufactured home.
The dining room is a perfect layout for family dinners and large holiday feasts.
Farmhouse seating and a primitive candle chandelier topped with red adds color and function. The flooring is a low maintenance vinyl that blends well with the color in the room. It’s not overpowering and allows the oak cabinets to be the center of attention.
The oven has a glass tiled backsplash that was also added when the Boyer’s ordered the home.

The door beside the stove leads to the laundry area. This home has a very convenient layout with ample room. Most manufactured homes will have the kitchen, laundry area and master bedroom within the same area of the home to allow for more efficiency for the water heater and pressure. This layout is superb as if allows that efficiency but keeps the areas separated. The door was added by the Boyer’s a few months ago and has been a great way to dampen the laundry activities from the main living areas. Smart and beautiful!
Primitive Country Manufactured Home Decorating Ideas for Your Laundry Room
Here you can see the layout of the laundry room a bit better. The back door is directly behind the photographer. This layout is optimal for living on a farm and with the Boyers’ many acres, they use the mudroom to keep the mud and hay out of the home.
Beautiful Primitive Living Rooms
This home is spacious and has both a living room and family room. The ample space gives Rachael plenty of room to test out her creative Primitive Country Manufactured Home Decorating Ideas and she does a superb job of it.
Built-ins are a great feature for any home. The neutral tan wall color is used throughout the home which makes a great canvas for whatever decor you desire.
This home also has the TV on a power lift and with a push of a button can be hidden behind the gas fireplace! All of these are great manufactured home decorating ideas.
Notice the chair railing?
Chair rails are a great way to break up a wall and adds extra dimension and texture in a room.
Primitive country manufactured home decorating is much easier if you use well-known tricks like this to help you achieve the look you’re going for.
Rachael used another trick that interior designers often use: adding a chair rail to only one room in order to differentiate rooms that may be similar in function, size or shape.
This home has wide trim, as well as the paneled doors. Both help makes a manufactured home look more like a site-built home.
The living room is a perfect example of primitive country manufactured home decorating using the primitive-country style. An accent wall in a darker brown carries the eye to the featured wall easily.
This home is gorgeous; I don’t really need to say too much about it at all. You can see for yourself all the beautiful features and the talent that Rachael has when it comes to decorating a manufactured home. She can come work her magic at my house any time she wants!
Country Style Bathroom
Even the spacious bathroom has the country motif!
The exterior of this double wide is just as nice! Manufactured home decorating should extend to the outdoors whenever possible – it provides a cohesive look and adds great curb appeal.
What is your favorite thing about the home?
Everything…but I have to say the homey feeling and its openness would be my top 2 favorite things
How did you choose the right home? Did you have to choose between 2 favorites or did you know this was the one for you immediately?
My husband and I looked for about 3 years until we found this one I knew what I wanted and I looked for 2 things when we were on the search, a big kitchen to cook in and move around in with lots of cabinets and 2 living-rooms.
I knew the moment I walked in the floor model. This house was everything I wanted and I stood in the kitchen for a long time just picturing in my head how the house would be decorated and I moved in the kitchen as if I was cooking and it fit me….. I remember walking back in the office at the lot and the receptionist asked “did you find one you like” and with a big smile on my face, I said “Yes” and I pointed at the floor model and her response was “Really? that one” with a dumbfounded look on her face and I asked “Yes, why” she replied “That is the smallest one on the lot and the least priced one” I said “Even better”… lol. I will never forget that conversation cus I knew this was my dream home and sometimes the best things come in small packages.
In your opinion, what are the benefits of a manufactured home?
There are so many benefits to a manufactured home: 1. you can design it however you want 2. They are more affordable. 3. There are so many floor plans to choose from.
As you can clearly see, this modern double wide went primitive with country decor.
The primitive country style is loved for its comfort and ability to take you back in time even while sitting in front of a flat-screen TV.
Thank you, Rachael, for sharing your home with us. It’s gorgeous!
As always, thank you for reading Mobile Home Living!
