Quilts make great gifts - they’re cozy enough to keep mom warm during chilly winter nights but still stylish enough to be used as a decorative piece when not in use. We also have several styles of woven coverlets for a vintage colonial touch. 


Curtains are another essential part of primitive country decorating and can really complete the look. Our curtains come in various plaid and check fabrics as well as neutral solids.

We actually have over 80 curtains options!

Next time you're visiting your mom, take a quick survey of her curtains. It's easy to forget about the need to update our windows. A fresh look can be so much fun.

Several years ago when our parents were away on a trip, my sisters and I surprised them with a little bathroom redo.

Fresh paint, a new shower curtain, better cabinet knobs and different curtains completely transformed the room. That was a fun reveal! We couldn't wait for them to arrive home.


Rugs are another great way to incorporate primitive country style into your home design. 

  • Braided Jute Rugs: Made from eco-friendly jute fibers; these rugs provide excellent durability without sacrificing style or comfort.
  • Cotton Woven Rugs: Made from cotton for durability and softness. 
  • Bone Shaped Rugs: Made from recycled polyester material, these rugs are perfect for your dog's water and food dishes.
