This Neat Faucet Cleans Itself So You Don’t Have to
No matter how efficient your cleanliness habits may be, you probably still have to turn that faucet with dirty hands. And that means that you have to wash the handle down afterwards, or risk being left with lots of accumulated bacteria, stains, and germs clinging to your sink that no fancy soap will ever wash away. Blech.
Before you run off screaming and become a complete germaphobe, there are a few solutions out there. One is called Little Twist. Created by industrial designer Sarang Sheth, the faucet is built directly under the water source to give it a nice, refreshing rinse every time you wash your hands.
Genius isn’t it? While you wash your hands, your faucet also gets clean, keeping it in great condition and saving you time once your hands are scrubbed. No more having to wipe down the faucet, no more having to stress over your dirty hands. Just turn the sink on, wash and dry easy knowing your faucet is getting clean, too.
Beyond the practical, let’s talk design, another area the faucet earns major cool points. It’s seamlessly designed to look like a splash of water, and it’s made from ceramic to avoid hard water stains. Turn the handle ninety degrees to get the water flowing, then back to stop. Simple, easy and, don’t forget, clean.
While Little Twist is just a concept for now, we hope this project will eventually come to fruition. Our clean hands and clean sinks will definitely be a testament to whoever makes this dream a reality.

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!
