How to Get the Look of Adrienne Moore’s Uber Chic Living Room
Decorating your first apartment is a huge deal and one that even celebs like Adrienne Moore — better known as “Black Cindy” from Orange Is the New Black — get to experience. After getting her first solo apartment, Adrienne got to redesign her entire space exactly how she wanted: A living room that was comfortable, but still sophisticated. Even if you rent (like Adrienne does!), there are tons of easy ways to #adult your space without investing too much. Check out Adrienne’s chic space on Domino to see how the living room came together, then scroll down to see how to get the same look in your home.
When it came to picking out a sofa, Adrienne knew exactly what she wanted: mid-century theme with a touch of glam. Since Adrienne is renting, she couldn’t paint or change anything too much, so she chose a neutral color palette and then brought in vibrant colors to make the space feel warm and alive.
Get the same mid-century vibes in your living room with a sleek couch and a glass-topped coffee table. If you’re renting like Adrienne, bring in color with a bright blue ottoman, hot pink throw blanket and kilim throw pillows.

Every gal knows the key to making your apartment look all grown up is a chic bar cart, and Adrienne nailed it. She wanted her living room to make people feel “comfortable and relaxed,” and there’s no better way to do that than with a gorgeous bar cart that tells your guests they’re always welcome.
If you’re looking for one way to instantly upgrade your living room, it’s as easy as bringing in a bar cart and filling it up with colorful glassware. Hang a chic piece of artwork over the cart and incorporate some sort of plant to bring the whole vignette to life.

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!
