Ivanka Trump Was Just Totally Burned by an Indie Jewelry Company
Ouch, Ivanka, that must hurt! Yes, we’re talking about the vicious burn she just received, but no, we’re not talking about any sort of physical pain. We mean the take-down the career advice-giving, politically-minded mama-of-three just received after placing what she must have thought was a simple order from Lady Grey Jewelry. You know what they say: All’s fair in love, war and jewelry-based politics (isn’t that the saying?).
When the indie jewelry brand received an order from the daughter of Republican candidate, Donald Trump, they decided to put their money where their mouths (or, er, politics) are. The duo behind Lady Grey, Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader, sent Ivanka’s order, along with a note that explained what they intended to do with the money from the sale.

A post shared by Lady Grey Jewelry (@ladygreyjewelry) on
“Dear Ivanka, Thank you so much for your order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to The American Immigration Council, the Everytown For Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixearcuff.”
Just as Ivanka is free to have her own political leanings and express them by supporting her controversial pop, the same goes for Jill and Sabine. They explained to Refinery29, “When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals… We strongly feel that everyone and anyone can make a difference through actively supporting the causes that they believe in, no matter how big or small.”

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!
