From celebrating the 17th Anniversary of Clueless to finding the perfect pair of headphones and coming up with 3 new ways to spike your sweets (Margarita Poptails, Watermelon Jello Shots, and Raspberry Pudding Bites), we've been all over the map this week at Brit HQ. Today's BritList is no exception. Get ready for wine glasses that serenade you, the most comfortable wedges ever, and boring old tweets from 2006.
: Gotta get our daily dose of. This adorable skirt is the perfect piece for summer, especially if you're hosting a watermelon-themed boozy Sunday brunch.
Musical Wine Glasses: Aka, the most amazing wine glasses in the world? Each glass is equipped with musical notations that correspond to the level of liquid in the glass and will produce the correct note when you run your finger along the rim of the glass. A full set of 12 covers an entire octave! We like to think this product was inspired by one Miss Congeniality. ;)
: A backup charger you can wear on your wrist? Yes please! This watch-like little gadget charges via USB and is there to charge up all your handheld devices. We think ais definitely in order.
: Remember doodling in one of these black and white composition books in elementary school? This charming iPad cover will bring you back and bring a smile to those around you whenever you're surfing the web,, or virtually scrapbooking.
: Long for the all American aesthetic of rippled paper plates and red solo cups but hate the waste? One of our favorite online retailers,, brings you dishwasher safe melamine "paper" plates and solo cups.
: Thought we were excited when? These strappy wedges really take things to the next level. Available in cork and espadrille, these are an instant spring, summer and early fall staple.
: Guess what. No one really knew how to "use" Twitter when they first started tweeting. In fact, people were kind of boring. The proof is in everyone's early tweets, as displayed on new Twitter search engine.
: Corn on the cob is one our favorite things to throw on the grill in the summertime, but sometimes you want to use fresh corn in non-cob form. While taking a knife to the cob is totally doable, if you're trying to get a lot of corn at once it can become tiresome. Enter this Deluxe Corn Stripper! Definitely an item for the.
s: Can't make it to the great outdoors this weekend? Bring the aroma of mountains, deserts, rivers, and valleys into your home with naturaland richly scented incense sticks.
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!
