Back in the 1960s, this beautiful vacation home was the very picture of country-style warmth and elegance.

From the wood finishes on the walls and ceilings, to the rustic red brick floors, to the window walls made of up dozens of tiny panes of glass, this house in Connecticut offered its owners a peaceful retreat from the daily hustle and bustle.

The comforts of this scene from the sixties were by no means an accident: the charm was enhanced by the thoughtful placement of furniture to fit with the space, instead of simply fitting within it.

For example, in this gorgeous country-style dining room, the long angular trestle table and ladderback chairs played up the architectural importance of a mullioned window.

The window, in turn, took advantage of a beautiful garden view, presenting it as if seen through a hundred small picture frames.

All the parts worked together perfectly to create a relaxing room the whole family — and any guests — could enjoy.
