High ceilings didn’t make this French country-style kitchen any less cozy — they just offered more space for the decor.

The colors of the paint, wallpaper and curtains — delphinium blues, high-spirited reds and sunny golds  — unified all of the design elements, and gave the room fresh impact.

On the trim around the doors and windows, the homeowners used blue paint instead of white, which kept the space from being more traditional.

The door and cabinetry came from 18th-century armoires. The flooring matched the finish of the antique cabinets perfectly. The hexagonal red tiles on the countertops offered some geometric visual interest.

French, too, were the Provincial chairs, the wine taster’s table, the spice cabinet, and even the chandelier.

Seen here in the late 1960s, this gorgeous little converted schoolhouse home was located in Brewster, New York — a tiny village just about 55 miles north of Manhattan.
