Today we’re talking primitive kitchen farmhouse style. It’s a fabulous combination of two complimentary design styles that we love here at Pickled Barrel. But what exactly is it, and how can you have it in your own kitchen? Stick around and we’ll show you!
What Is Primitive Farmhouse Style?
Primitive style is rustic, homey and folksy. It stresses simplicity in design and function. Primitive decor is also characterized by earthy colors and fabric choices. Farmhouse style is also simple and homey, but lighter and brighter than primitive style. However, the two work well together for a combination that is comfortable and relaxed. Take a look at ways to bring these two styles together in your kitchen.
Primitive Kitchen Farmhouse Style
You may think that you can’t get away with adding primitive decor to a modern farmhouse kitchen, but that’s not true. Using natural butcher block counters in an otherwise sleek farmhouse kitchen is one amazing way to add primitive style. We love how the natural wood adds warmth and rustic style to a kitchen that might seem a little cold otherwise.
Another way to add primitive style to your farmhouse kitchen is with rustic decor elements. Rustic corner shelves are a great place to showcase interesting primitive pottery pieces that otherwise hide inside a cabinet.
Consider the unexpected in your primitive kitchen farmhouse style. The reclaimed wood backsplash in this kitchen definitely fits the bill! It’s completely unexpected, yet provides warmth and homey charm this kitchen would lack without it. Is this backsplash going on your kitchen wish list? It’s going on ours!
As for easy ways to incorporate primitive decor in to your farmhouse style kitchen, look no further than your local antique store or thrift shop. If you learn how to shop like Joanna Gaines, your vintage kitchen finds will make the perfect primitive decor addition to your kitchen.
This kitchen is a good example of primitive kitchen farmhouse style. A primitive table makes the perfect kitchen island. Add other vintage touches like a beaded candelabra to set your kitchen apart.
