Nick Lachey Helping Vanessa With Her “Honey Do” List Is #RelationshipGoals
Know what’s even better than reveling in an awesome creation of something you made with your own two hands? Sharing that creation with someone you love. Take Nick Lachey, for example, who worked super hard this week to help wife Vanessa check one off the “honey do” list. Or Ashley Greene, who whipped up a home-cooked meal to share with her man. You can also share with friends, like Krysten Ritter does when she knitsbaby goods for her new mommy pals. Check out all the ways celebs are creating for others this week in our roundup below.
1. Vanessa Lachey: Vanessa Lachey (who’s mid-garage renovation before baby number three arrives) put her husband, 98 degrees boy bander Nick Lachey, to work on her “#honeydolist,” writing “That’s right, honey! Werk werk werk werk werk!”
2. Lucy Liu: Lucy made making art look like… well, art. “Quality studio time,”she wrote of this fashionable snap.
3. Jenni “JWoww” Farley: Jenni went over painting basics like colors with daughter Meilani before delving into some painted potted plant crafts.
4. Molly Sims: Molly took #meatlessmonday into her own hands with this noodle bowl she prepared with healthy dressing, and wants you to do the same with this Vegan Monkey recipe.

8. Alicia Silverstone: DIY dinner doesn’t have to be complex, as Alicia proved with this delectable-looking salad. “My #LaborDay salad fresh from our garden — melon, tomatoes, cucumbers, arugula lettuce, kale, broccoli leaves, chives and parsley…Yum!!!” Yum, indeed!

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!
