A Primitive Place magazine, also known as A Primitive Place & Country Journal, is a home and garden magazine that covers various rustic styles, including primitive, colonial and country, and includes images and articles on cooking, decorating and gardening in the rustic style. The magazine is published four times per year in the spring, summer, fall and winter/holiday and provides inspirational pictures, designs and articles for recipients to consider adopting or adapting to their needs.
In each issue of A Primitive Place, readers see five meticulously decorated primitive, colonial and country style homes. For each home, the magazine walks through specific elements that the decorator has chosen in an attempt to inspire the readers to adopt a similar element. The same is true for the images of the country style gardens that the magazine includes. For many of these styles, readers peruse in-depth articles that provide the historical basis and development of the style or a specific element.
Each issue of A Primitive Place features simple recipes and crafting tutorials for do-it-yourself projects. Specifically, the magazine has a section dedicated to the designs and ideas of cabinet- and pottery-maker David Smith.
As of 2016, Kristine Doss owns and edits the magazine. Her husband, Jeremy, is a writer and editor for the magazine.
