Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry Are Sparking SERIOUS Engagement Talk
Forget “Teenage Dream” — since Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry started dating back in January, they’ve been a tabloid media one! (To be fair, that steamy Italian holiday — complete with nude pictures — probbbbabbblyyyyy didn’t help matters any.)
Despite exciting reports that Katy has written a ton of new music (with a bunch of songs allegedly throwing shade at Taylor Swift) and about Orlando’s recent trip to Tokyo for a cool British Airways event, there’s only one thing anyone can talk about re: these two, and it’s whether or not Katy will be taking a cue from ex Russell Brand and making a trip down the aisle anytime soon.
That’s the million-dollar question. According to People, a source close to Orlando revealed that the couple is “not engaged yet, but seem to be heading that way.” And that’s not all! “He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids,” the source added. “He hasn’t been this serious about a girl since Miranda.”

Meanwhile, others are turning to photos of Orlando snapped in Tokyo for proof that Katy will soon be wearing a ring on her finger. The paparazzi pics show the 39-year-old looking absolutely glowing as he exits a shop, with a huge smile plastered across his face. While this could defs be the look of someone who’s smitten and in love, it could also just be someone who’s having an amazing holiday — he is in Tokyo, after all!
Katy’s friends told the same mag that, regardless of ring status, it will likely be a while before she says “I do.” “She’s not going to make a huge committment like marriage again unless she thinks it’s absolutely right,” the source said.
Guess we’ll play it safe and wait for some more clues before making any solid guesses for now… We will, however, keep all of our fingers crossed for a Tamagotchi engagement ring!

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!
