Meet AirFryer: A Healthier Way to Cook Your Food
When you think of fried foods, you think grease, fat and lots of guilt. Watching anything cook to delicious perfection in a vat of oil is bound to make you question its nutritional value. But does it have to be this way? Not according to Phillips. They’ve created the AirFryer, a creation that uses rapid air technology to fry, bake, roast or grill your food with only a tablespoon or less of oil.
This coffee pot-sized gadget circulates hot air with speed and precision to cook your favorite foods with just a few drops of oil. We’re talking French fries, vegetables, baked goods — all with less fat. By using little to no oil, the AirFryer prevents your house from smelling like a fast food joint and makes clean up a cinch. It even features a removable, nonstick drawer and a food basket that are both dishwasher safe (score!). Similar to your friend the slow cooker, this baby has an integrated timer and digital temperature control that allow you to program pre-set cooking times of up to one hour and temperatures up to 390 degrees.
Sounding delicious? If you’re digging what this little guy is selling, the AirFryer retails for $330 on Amazon right now and has a user rating of four and a half stars. Not bad for a pint-sized piece of technology that makes our favorite fried, baked and roasted foods a little bit healthier and easier to make. Now we can totally justify them as a part of our daily diet, right?

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!
