Last Call: Everything Leaving Netflix in April 2016
Spring has finally (finally!) sprung, and with its arrival comes everyone’s favorite task — spring cleaning. But it’s not just bedrooms and closets that are getting a makeover this month, as Netflix prepares to do the whole out with the old, in with the new thang, too. Now that you know what you have to look forward to, these are the old friends you’ll have to say goodbye to to make room for more awesome flicks. Ah, c’est la vie. Arrivederci, babes!
Those looking for a laugh will want to get their kicks before 4/1, when Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, Along Came Polly, Nine to Five, Rock Star and The Whole Ten Yards hit the bricks, followed by Half Baked (4/20) later in the month.
Netflix and chill with rom-coms and dramas like Jennifer Beal’s classic stint in Flashdance (4/1), the all-too beloved Pride and Prejudice (4/1), R. Patz in Remember Me (4/1), or New York, I Love You (4/15), or cuddle up for scary flicks/thrillers like 2 Fast 2 Furious (4/1) (we’ll miss you, Paul! L), House of Wax (4/1) — who knew Paris could act? —, The Rundown (4/1) and Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassin’s Ball (4/1). Doc junkies won’t want to miss Craiglist Joe (4/1), The Inexplicable Universe with Neil deGrasse Tyson (4/1) or Bill Cunningham New York (4/15).
And for the kiddies? There are our childhood faves, 101 Dalmations (4/1) and Hook (“RUFIO!) (4/1), as well as new classics, like Nanny McPhee (4/1), Space Dogs (4/3) and Mr. Bean’s Holiday (4/16).
On the TV side of things, weird gets the boot (sorry, Robert van Winkle), saying goodbye to Vanilla Ice Goes Amish: Season 1 and the entire series of The Vanilla Ice Project (4/1) along with Venice Beach’s Freakshow: Season 1 (4/22).
Also on the chopping block (pun intended), Throwdown With Bobby Flay Collection: Collection 1 (4/1) and all seasons of ‘70s favorite M*A*S*H (4/1).
Are you sad to see these titles go? Let us know at @BritandCo!
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!
