 Country Details

HOMEMADE is the key word in creating the "Primitive Country Look" within your home. Years ago a man made what he needed because his ingenuity was his only source. His creations could range from a complete hand-built house to the doors, cupboards and shelves. A sense of pride remained in his home years after his labors.

Today our sources for building materials are unlimited. Therefore, to incorporate a country fancy, rustic or primitive décor in your home, I would suggest that you carefully select appropriate materials that look less machine-made. Finishing materials, which appear to have been handled by man and not machines, will do much to create the look of yesteryear.

This collection of details has been compiled to assist you in creating the homemade effect. The particular home that is shown is my personal residence. My goal was to produce a primitive home with as little of today's ready-made finishing materials as possible.

Unexpected treatments of special areas and the interplay of lines excite the visual senses. Setbacks of window seats produce those interesting shadows; angled door openings catch the eye and unfilled holes remind you of the man not the machine. Use techniques from the past as often as possible.

Decide on your style. Your taste may lean toward country fancy or primitive. Then select finishing materials and colors accordingly; do not be afraid for your instinct will guide you if you relax and allow it to flow. Remember your natural ability is to create.

No effort has been to be completely authentic - only to capture from the past the down to earth - peaceful way of LIFE.

Enjoy your home!
