Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake Are the Dream Team We Never Knew We Needed
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake have been making the rounds promoting their upcoming movie Trolls, and it’s given us an opportunity to see just how amazing of a comedic duo they really make. It’s certainly no secret that both Anna and Justin are hilarious on their own (have you seen Justin in one of his many SNL appearances? COME ON), but together, we can’t help but think they’re the next best thing to a dream Anna and Channing match-up.
When everything went terribly wrong at this press event and they had the BEST reaction. As part of the Trolls press tour, Anna and Justin made a stop to ceremoniously light up the famous London Eye ferris wheel, but it went NOWHERE near as planned. After the big countdown, the two finally pushed the button and… nothing happened. They instantly broke down laughing, with Justin continuing to try to get it to work — which it eventually did. This was literally how you and your BFF would have reacted.
When they made a DREAM of a duet. Justin’s song of the summer that was conveniently (and confusingly!) marketed at having anything at all to do with Trolls wasn’t a fair shake at seeing these two in a song together. But their cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors?” NO, YOU’RE CRYING!
When Justin was right there by Anna’s side as she grieved over recent Great British Bake Off drama. On a recent Graham Norton Show appearance together, Anna dished her recent sadness over the hosts and judge Mary Berry not returning to the hit baking competition show. “It immediately turned [hosts] Mel and Sue into folk heroes, and we’re all so proud of Mary for following suit,” she gushed, with her bestie right by her side supporting her obsession — and her sadness.
When they were literally the teenage version of you and your bestie — aka they TOTALLY geeked out over Gwen Stefani together. While at Comic Con together, Justin and Anna described what it was like when Gwen Stefani (who also appears in Trolls) was on set. “She’s like the raddest chick on the planet,” Justin said, with Anna adding, “We were both pretty geeky the day that she was there. I came in for a recording session and just caught the tail end of Gwen’s session, and I was like full-on saucer-eyed.”
When they spent all of Cannes hanging out and goofing around. These two make long days of interviews and press look like SO MUCH FUN, as evidenced by their time at Cannes back in the spring. Every red carpet and photo shoot looked like the best time ever. They even made a point of befriending the photographers, because of course they did.

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!
