2. Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom: The adorable newlyweds definitely balanced each other out — with the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star sporting a black quilted tuxedo jacket and Joanna looking all sorts of gorg in a pink gown that stood out with its salmon-colored tulle and bold embroidered chest piece.

3. Heidi Klum: The former supermodel and current host of Project Runway went bold with a light yellow Versace gown. We’re mesmerized by the sheer, glittering fabric and the abstract, floral-inspired appliques. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
4. Sarah Hyland: This simple, perfectly maroon gown by Zac Posen not only hugs every curve perfectly, but the color couldn’t be more flawless for fall. We’re also loving those matching gems and that fierce manicure. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
5. Ariel Winter: Another Modern Family fave, Ariel looked fresh-faced and fab in a gown that was brighter red than the red carpet itself. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
6. Aubrey Plaza: She may play socially awkward characters, but Aubrey proves in this glittery gown that she is no wallflower. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)

16. Christina Hendricks: Though we’ll miss tuning in to see this bombshell boss around all the boys on Mad Men, she still looks every part the bombshell #GirlBoss in this studded and sequined Naeem Khan gown. (Photo via Mark Davis/Getty)
17. Lady Gaga: Sporting a simple black one-shoulder Brandon Maxwell (Spring ’16) gown and minimal makeup (compared to some of her regular looks), Gaga’s mere presence on the red carpet (in support of her new #AHS costars) is getting us excited for this upcoming season.
18. Amy Poehler: We’re seriously obsessed with this comedy powerhouse’s new hair color, made even bolder with the help of her black cutout dress. Later in the evening, she surprised everyone by pulling out a gray hoodie and gold-hued shades, which she equally rocked. (Photo via Frazer Harrison/Getty)
19. Taryn Manning: This stunning actress took the classic LBD and blew it out of the water with a floor-length, vampy update. Taryn went minimal-chic with her accessories, letting her gown’s sultry cutout and fantastic silhouette speak for itself. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
20. Maggie Gyllenhaal: When Maggie Gyllenhaal stepped out on the red carpet, our bright color-loving hearts were beaming. Not only was her voluminous skirt and simple-yet-sweet bodice totally glam, but her choice accessory — a bright gold cuff — was also brilliant. (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
21. Emma Roberts: We’re definitely feeling the old Hollywood-glam vibes from this little Scream Queen, as she stuns in a low V-neck Jenny Packham gown and boxy clutch. (Photo via Mark Davis/Getty)
22. Sofia Vergara: Not sure if it’s the wedding glow or just the glow of an A-lister on the top of her game, but Sofia definitely found her dress shape in a very form-fitting metallic number — made only better when on the arm of her ruggedly handsome fiance, Magic Mike‘s Joe Manganiello.

23. Elizabeth Moss: We’re loving the simple, clean lines of Elizabeth’s Oscar de la Renta gown, balanced out by Beladora Art Deco diamonds and freshwater pearls. (Photo via Mark Davis/Getty)

What’s your favorite part of the Emmys thus far?
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!
