Re: Primitive Country

[ Edited ]

While I wouldn't want a house full of it, I like the primitive look when it either is or looks genuine. I less enjoy the more 'cutesey' version, which is actually more faux 'Early American', so often found in some magazines...

Really not my thing at all.  However, the room pictured in the OP isn't bad.

I am not a fan of the look.

Re: Primitive Country

I love it!  When I lived in Pa. my house looked like that, so so cozy and welcoming.

Re: Primitive Country

When we got married almost 40 years ago, my husband built our home.  It was a log cabin.  We really had fun decorating it and loved the primitive look.  Flash forward all these years, and we still enjoy touches of the primitive look.  A lot of the antique furniture that we bought way back still looks great in our present home.  I still subscribe to Country Living!

Re: Primitive Country

For years I decorated our home with primitives and country decor.  One of my favorites was Gooseberry Patch.  I can still remember my dear Mom and I combining our orders to save a bit on shipping... Unfortunately they no longer sell anything other than their cookbooks. Try  eBay ~ you will be pleasantly surprised at  what you will find on there.  So much to choose from and I think much better prices than catalogs.  Happy shopping!

Re: Primitive Country

I also receive the Sturbridge Yankee Workshop catalogue and like many of the items .  I especially like the art work and some of the furniture and decor.  I do   not have this style in my home but it is appealing .

Re: Primitive Country

Just checked the site. They have some unique things. My favorite is a door sign that says ring the doorbell and win a dog. My son and family have a new puppy and she is one tough cookie. She just may be training them.

Re: Primitive Country

NOPE

dark & colors & style aren't appealing to me.

Yes, that's a nice store.  Haven't been in it a couple of years.  Sturbridge has a Primitive Store on the opposite side of Rte. 20.  Have you been there?  I haven't checked it out because that style doesn't appeal to me.  I know of someone who did primitive crafts as a living .. nope.
