Primitive

Hello! We’ve just returned from a Spring Break road trip to visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park and its neighbor, Dollywood! I learned pretty quickly that this part of the world doesn’t have too many modern Design Finds to share, but what it does have is an endless supply of beautiful primitive barns (many of which are fighting a losing battle with time and gravity), log cabins, mills, fences and churches. Their beautiful simplicity and the stories they hold really spoke to me. My dream house is a modern barn – maybe something like this:

While the structures I saw in Tennessee were a far cry from the one above, they were lovely in their own quiet way. Their age becomes them – and some things just never go out of style.
