Passion for Primitives: Folk Décor for Interior Design
By Franklin and Esther Schmidt, Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. • http://www.schifferbooks.com
Primitives are all about simplicity and function. True primitive pieces were ones that were mainly designed to be used, though some were constructed to add a little special touch to a room as well. To those who are in love with them, however, they could most certainly be called “accidental art.”
The authors traveled all over the United States, vising prim homes and photographing the owners’ most prized pieces. In a world where everything is moving so quickly, many are trying hard to simplify, both in lifestyle and in decorating. From double wides to McMansions, anything goes for a prim decorating style. The outside doesn’t matter at all—it really is what’s inside that counts.
An up-to-date kitchen can have a decidedly prim feel with rustic cabinetry and bench seating; a contemporary bathroom can feel historic with a cleverly-designed old-fashioned sink; and a set of bunk beds created with distressed wood and covered in quilts can send a child’s bedroom back in time. And prim decorating can fit any budget; real antiques or recreated pieces will look equally lovely.
Whether you want an all-out 1800’s house or want to simply add a primitive accent to a contemporary home, the beautiful photography and informative chapters will leave you feeling inspired.
