All of Your Fave Celebs Are Wearing This Jewelry Line
We’re on to their secret — the secret of how some of our favorite celebs always look so on point and put together. That secret is a line of blinged-out jewelry, created by engineer-turned-epic-jewelry-designer Melissa Kaye. The reason these pieces have everyone seeing stars might be because they were perfectly engineered and directly inspired by math. Yes, math — but we’re not talking eighth-grade algebra. Kaye worked for Goldman Sachs for 10 years before getting into design. A position well earned, considering her resume boasts an MIT undergrad in science and engineering. Oh, and then there is her degree from Carnegie Mellon University, where she studied computational finance.
Margo Earrings ($3,520): In a recent interview with W Magazine, Kaye said, “Given my mathematical background, I find beauty and inspiration in geometric and natural patterns.” Jessica Alba took note and wore a pair of Margo earrings to the Independent School Alliance for Minority Affairs Impacts Awards dinner.

Zoe Marie Ring ($3,630): While the ring is a little hard to spot, Jordana Brewster was definitely holding the mic with Kaye’s Melissa ring while talking about Furious 7 at AOL Studios in NYC. (Photo via Dimitrios Kambouris / Getty)

Rhonda Ring ($3,410) + Naomi Ring ($1,650) + Isabella Ring ($1,430): We spy three little rings on Miss Kerry Washington’s digits. Apparently, like us, she can’t get enough of the effortless simplicity of this collection. (Photo via Jason Kempin / Getty)
Tori Ring ($3,190): In the interview with W, Melissa went on to say, “I’m driven by the notion that function must be part of the design, not an afterthought. Pieces are engineered to cleverly capture form and function, highlighted by many subtle and unexpected details.” (Photo via Michael Buckner / Getty)

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!
