8 of the Most Swoon-Worthy Things Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Have Said About Each Other
This week, after almost a decade of being together, Hollywood power couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt announced they would FINALLY be working together. John is directing a table-read of the Matt Damon and Ben Affleck classic Good Will Hunting, and he’s cast Emily in the role of Skylar (originally played by Minnie Driver).
“So I’m casting this #LiveReadNY of Good Will Hunting, then ran into this #girlonthetrain and thought… yeah it’s time to work together!,” he captioned an adorbs pic of the two on Instagram, before capping it off with an ULTRA dorky Jim Halpert joke of “Howdaya like THEM apples?” Frankly, John, we love them.
We’re not surprised John cast his wife in this project — these two are very publicly very in love with each other, and if their previous collaborations — um, yes, we’re talking about their growing family and their insanely nice home — are any indication, we’re in for something good. Here are eight times we couldn’t get enough of John and Emily’s love.
1. “[Marrying Emily] is legitimately my greatest achievement, and I’m OK saying that,” John told the Huffington Post. (Photo via John Shearer/Getty)
2. “[Director] Rob Marshall did the slowest double take of all time and then queued a 125-piece orchestra and she started singing and I just wept,” John told the Huffington Post about hearing Emily sing during rehearsals for Into the Woods. (Photo via Christopher Polk/Getty)
3. “All I can say is that it’s an effing blast,” Emily told Modern Luxury magazine about being married to John. “It’s just great, and I’m so happy.” It’s the simple things. (Photo via Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty)
4. “I met her and I was so nervous,” John told Ellen on their love at first sight. “I was like, ‘Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.'” (Photo via Christopher Polk/Getty)
5. “The truth is, she really is that person who would like me any way,” John said to Elle about Emily enjoying his new ripped physique but not caring either way. “But I don’t think she’s going to kick the eight-pack abs out of bed.” (Photo via Alexandra Wyman/Getty)
6. Emily told InStyle that John has changed her life. “When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible. There’s someone behind you on your good days, and someone in front of you on your bad days.” (Photo via Paul Hiffmeyer/Getty)
7. John told People that he thinks his wife is “hilarious, extremely talented and I’m definitely her number-one fan.” (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
8. He also told People that he’s “so proud to know that my daughters are going to grow up knowing that their mom is an incredibly hardworking, wonderful woman.” Annnnd cue the tears. (Photo via Jamie McCarthy/Getty)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
