Preparing Your Country Primitive Home for Fall

Here at The Red Brick Cottage our End-of-Summer Sale is in full swing and we could not be more excited! As much as we love this sunny season, we are really looking forward to the cool fall months. Why? Because there are so many incredible country primitive interior design trends we can’t wait to incorporate into our homes!

Lanterns & Candles

An accent piece that can fit into any room of your home, rustic-inspired lanterns add to the warm, hospitable atmosphere that you want your home to provide as the weather gets chilly. This cozy, primitive accent piece can be emphasized even further with the addition of a flameless candle.

A lovely way to add the comforting flicker of candlelight to your space without having to worry about kids and pets bumping into a real flame, flameless candles are a safer and easier-to-enjoy option than their flamed counterparts. No longer will you have to worry about blowing out candles before you go to bed; just accent your rustic lanterns with flameless candles that you love and enjoy their comforting beauty.

Seasonal Flowers

The fastest and cheeriest way to add a seasonal touch to your home is with updated flower arrangements! To inspire fall feelings in your space, we especially love the look of mums in hues of orange, red and yellow. And while fresh flowers are absolutely breathtaking, it can be time consuming to constantly have to update your arrangements. Instead, stop by The Red Brick Cottage to pick up some of our beautiful, realistic artificial arrangements. Our mums were recently featured in Country Sampler Magazine and we have a variety of different colors available.

Three Ways to Add Primitive Style to Your Home

A decorating style that fills your home with a cozy aura, rustic style allows you experiment with texture, mixing vintage finds with bold woodwork and earthy hues. For individuals looking to add more primitive style to their space, there are many different options to consider – from bold furniture finds to warm throw blankets and vases of wildflowers.

Mix and Match

One of our favorite things about rustic style is the way it allows you to mix and match different colors, textures and materials. If you are having trouble deciding where you want to play with colors and textures, we recommend starting with your dining room table. A sturdy wood table can be paired with all types of chairs, creating a unique, collected look.

Whether you choose similar styles in all different colors or different designs all made from a similar material, a little bit of diversity goes a long way in creating a collected, primitive look.

Repurpose Vintage Finds

Another primitive decorating technique we love is repurposing. A wet sink converted into a functional bathroom sink, wooden crates hung on the walls as shadow boxes and pallets turned into coffee tables make for lovely rustic additions.

Focus on Texture

Once you have updated your furniture to create a more rustic appearance, texture is an important factor to consider when adding smaller decorative pieces into your space. We love the look of patchwork quilts in the bedroom, copper pots hanging in the kitchen and rusty iron light fixtures.

The best thing about primitive style is the way it allows your home to evolve as you find unique new items. No two rustic homes are quite the same, and it is this collected and completely one-of-a-kind look that makes them so home-y.

As you are searching for unique furniture finds and primitive accent pieces to fill your home with, shop with The Red Brick Cottage for one-of-a-kind treasures. See something you love on our Facebook page? Just give us a call at 270-351-1224 to place your order!
