Finally, to help the dishwasher blend in with the cabinets’ new paint job, she covered the door panel with leftover wallpaper, then painted it the same green. A few accessories, such as a rug and a plant from…

Take this inspiring retreat put together by designer Courtney Barton for her Houston home, and which is featured in the new book Carolyn Westbrook: Vintage French Style. “I don’t believe in going to a big-box retailer and buying a bunch of stuff that has no history just to fill a space,” says designer Westbrook.
