Embrace your Primitive Side

   Primitive decor is not just for Colonial Williamsburg anymore. Although we used to think of primitive decor as suitable only for clapboard farmhouses or East coast salt boxes, this simple, restful style is making its way into homes with a wide variety of interior design styles. The neutral palette of black, tan, woods and heathers of this decor is a perfect candidate for combining with many color schemes.


   A bit of primitive decor reminds us of simpler times and brings a handcrafted look to any style. As a counterpoint to sleek,modern furnishings, our primitive Beckham quilt can add a warm unpretentious element to a potentially stark space. A primitive detail, such as a forged candle holder or a linen table runner, can anchor a cottage look and keep it from being overly feminine.


   It is so fun and easy to add these rustic touches to your home. Our various baskets or Vintage White Tote will add attractive display space to any room. We like to use our Primitive Table Risers to vary the height of table top displays; simple linens and curtains in the ‘Brookstone’, “Tobacco Cloth”, or “York” checks are another way to bring that primitive look into your home.



   The uncluttered, simple lines of country primitives can bring a tranquil feel to our busy homes, no matter what our decor. The way we describe country style includes the words: comfortable, homey, warm, wholesome and homespun, evoking family and heritage. Country primitive decor is a perfect choice to bring that handcrafted, unfussy atmosphere to your personal space and Country Village Shoppe has brought together a hand picked collection of primitive home furnishings just for you.
