Primitive country home décor is basically decorating using the most basic things that you can find in nature. Based on how our primitive ancestors lived, primitive country is the use of materials such as earth, plants, water, fire and air. Every single material is important in creating this primitive look in your home and you will be surprised how relaxing, cozy and impressive this decorating style is, despite the primitive look.
When you say primitive country home décor there are only a few wonderful colors to choose from for your walls. Colors such as green, brown, red, white, orange and black are the most common hues. These colors may be mixed and matched or may be used individually. Primitive designs are also about texture and this is evident in rough walls, walls decorated with fabrics, walls with unique tribal décor and so on.
Furniture pieces with the primitive country flair are all about using textured prints over sofas and armchairs. It is also about using carved wood, wooden furniture pieces and also wrought iron elements too. You can therefore find beds made of wonderfully-detailed wrought iron or sofas with intricate carvings on the arms and legs. Expect wonderful dining sets too, also loaded with terrific tribal designs, carvings and accents.
The different accents and ornaments that you have in your room will make it evident if you are using primitive country décor. In this theme you can find interesting accents with amazing details such as dried twigs on tall vases, ceramics with tribal or natural designs, intricately-carved idols, wooden artifacts, and accents made from teeth, ivory, bone and stones and so on. Lighting is a very important factor in primitive country designs and large windows or patio doors are never underestimated during the day time. But at night, the room is lit with the use of pendant lighting or mood lighting placed strategically in the room. These could be placed in the middle or along the sides of the room to illuminate an interesting piece or artifact. Illuminating valuable treasures and finds are also an option and therefore track lighting or spot lighting is a really great option.
Another alternative in the evening, is to light the space with numerous candles placed in various areas of the room. This creates a wonderful glow over your primitive country home décor.
