Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton Reunited at Christmas and the Photo Is Everything
The early 2000s were a much simpler time. Sure, fashion was questionable at best, but it was the dawning of the reality show era heralded by Paris Hilton. In the time of Juicy tracksuits (which have finally been laid to rest), all eyes were on the Paris and her then-BFF Kim Kardashian-West, but the two have since stopped talking to each other, and Paris eventually left the spotlight while Kim became the most famous-for-being-famous person in Hollywood. Now, the pair have been reunited, and the photo is everything we could have imagined.
Paris attended Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve party, where the reunion happened. Kim has been slowly sneaking back on to social media and the pose with former pal Paris has us taking a trip down memory lane. While the former pals haven’t always had nice things to say about each other in the press (Paris famously insulted Kim’s famous rear in an interview in 2008), the two appear to have let their past stay there and are forgiving and forgetting.
Kim and Paris were inseparable in the late ’90s and early 2000s, with Kim “playing” Paris’s stylist and assistant on The Simple Life. Kim was obviously taking notes, and while social media was in its early days, she took hold of everything she learned from Paris and Kim’s star rose while Paris’s fell. Paris regularly has spoken about how she “made” Kim famous, but we’re sure that Kim just took what Paris taught her and did it better.
With Kim having been out of the spotlight for the last few months post-robbery, maybe she’ll lean on her former friend again to learn how to live outside the spotlight after being the most famous non-celebrity around. Or, maybe she’s just getting back into her regular Kim self and jumping in again the way she started: with Paris Hilton by her side.

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!
