Nancy Fishelsons primitive styled country home Saturated Country Brights   Vibrant Can Be Country Too

Country Living featured an article on Nancy Fishelson's primitive styled country home. When she bought the 1940's home, little did she know how much renovations the house would bring.

Nancy's home is a great example of what you can do to make your home look more primitive. Nancy added plenty of unique finds to achieve her old world look.

  • She transformed her kitchen countertops from salvaged wood floors, added primitive distressed old signage as wall decor, and used a lot of weathered furniture to create that old world effect.
  • In one of the photos she used a 19th-century wooden tub as a coffee table. Don't be afraid to re-purpose something in a way that it isn't commonly used for.
  • A few hand picked antiques can go a long way. Buying a painted piece of furniture that has natural patina can go a long way in a room. In many of her rooms you can see that every knick nack fits into the primitive colonial scheme. She doesn't clutter up her home with too much. Instead she focuses on the few selected items she wants to feature.
  • Work Firkin Buckets Saturated Country Brights   Vibrant Can Be Country Too into your decor. They can be rather expensive, but you can them on ebay for less in the color you are after.
  • All Maine Bucket sells a variety of lovely primitive styled buckets from just display to full wood buckets. Their planter round wood containers can be white washed and stationed in the house with dried flowers. They come in a few sizes.
  • White Cosmos Flowers would look nice in an oversized basket. Keeping the flowers light in color looks nice with an off white /gray painted basket. The Baby's Breath Gypsophila Artificial Silk Flowers in Navy Blue would also give a country feel. Imagine it in a distressed baby blue painted container. Singapore Orchid in cream yellow can also fill up a container.

  • In many homes, space comes at a premium, so you really have think strategically about how to best use the space you have.
  • It has become trendy to have bookshelves in the dining room, and the table transformed into a work space during the day.  Invest in some bookshelves that match and create a built-in look, by adding stripes off wood that could be hammered on, unite the shelves together.  Building a built in look is easier than you think.
  • Your bedroom could also double up as a library, or reading room.  House the extra books on the wall, or place a curtain in front, which you can open and close at your will.
  • Hidden storage can be painted in bright saturated tones.  Consider painting your closets a bright color.  Housing linens has never looked so exciting.
  • Go for color inside your drawers.  If you love lilac, or yellow, paint the inside of your dresser something exciting.
  • It’s possible to find collections of furniture that match and coordinate by painting them.  Work with several shades of the same tone to give your house a vibrant appeal without it looking overboard.  If you love yellow, consider working with a canary, amber and flax.  Use a soft muted cream for your painted floors and walls.
  • If you go for a vibrant saturated wall color, consider painting a piece of furniture in a hue that is slightly darker or lighter in color.  Maybe it is a wall cabinet or an accent chair.  What ever piece you decide, it draw the two colors together and won't seem so busy.  Adding just one piece in a similar shade will blend the elements together.

Painting Inside Your China Cabinets 500x661 Saturated Country Brights   Vibrant Can Be Country Too

Antiques dealer Jim Williams spotted this vintage two-piece cupboard with zinc top and had to take it home. But as an artist with a love of eye-catching colors, he didn't hesitate to paint the back of the cupboard a honeydew-melon green.

Not only does the green better show off his collection of vintage ironstone and brown transferware, but this fresh color is a happy pair with the cupboard's warm brown wood. Though perfectly crisp lines are highly overrated, you may want to tape off the shelves and back before picking up your paintbrush.
