The range is a BlueStar. They have an obscene number of color options.

Navy walls look great with gold.
Greige + honeysuckle pink + gold.

Matte finish only. The shiny plastic "brass" has ruined shiny gold finishes for a looong time to come.

I'm sticking with polished nickel and chrome, but I could say "yes" to that modern faucet in a navy powder room.

I just don't think the oak cabinets can stand up to that strong red. I would choose terra cotta for the walls. Paint the hutch blue-grey, or dark green, or just use one or both of those colors as accents. Tin ceiling tiles for a backsplash or metallic tiles, nothing too shiny. Grey cork flooring. And this is one of the few times that I would vote for stainless steel appliances. The cabinets are mellow, and all the white is a lot of contrast.

Call it "sophisticated old French country." The pics in this link have the general flavor: http://zeospot.com/natural-material-19th-century-country-house-design-in-france/

I've been fantasizing about a tiling cool mosaic stripe in our to-be-renovated bathroom. Some of my inspirations:
