Primitive can be warm and cozy with their dark country colors such as burgundy, navy, hunter, and mustard. Fabrics include plaids, homespun, and quilts - for a rustic cabin feeling. Woods are rustic such as pine, cedar and barn wood with a matte finish. Metals include iron, tin, and pewter. Accessories include game boards, samplers, sheep, crows, saltbox houses, signs, and antiques. Crafts are right at home in the primitive decor including:
