We’re on Snapchat Discover All December Long!
Are you dreaming of a Brit + Co Christmas? Well then, you’re in for a real festive treat! In addition to opening a holiday pop-up shop in San Francisco for the second year in a row, we’re also back on Snapchat Discover all month long.
To guarantee you have a merry little Christmas — or any holiday you celebrate this time of the year — we’re sleighing Snapchat with a different Discover edition each weekend leading up to Christmas.
First up, we’re on the app THIS weekend providing you with a glam guide to the holiday season. Searching for unique looks for your office holiday party? We’ve got ‘em! From DIY candy cane makeup to a how-to on holographic beauty and gold leaf body art IRL, we’ve got all your looks picked out for every festive fête you’ll be attending until 2017. We’re not just stopping there though… this first holiday edition also includes a how-to on achieving Selena Gomez’s signature red lips, a DIY peppermint lip balm guide, ugly Christmas sweater nail art inspo and — best of all — glitter beards! ‘Tis the season!
After this weekend we’ll be popping back up on Snapchat two more times. Our second edition, launching December 10, will focus on all things gift-giving. We’ll cover everything from creative present wrapping tricks to White Elephant ideas, a zodiac gift guide and inspo for what you should be gifting based on popular presents from the past and present.
We’ll be back on December 16 with a sleigh full of home for the holidays ideas. Everything from decorating — Christmas light hacks, anyone? — to tree decorating inspo and DIY dreidels, latkes and menorahs, you’re sure to have more than enough ideas to deck the halls for the holidays (and maybe even longer).
Oh, and you better believe we’ll have a stocking full of last-minute holiday DIYs for Christmas Day itself. Stay tuned for more info on that.
So… don’t be a cotton-headed ninny muggins! Open up your Snapchat app right now — just scan our Snapcode above or head HERE — and start spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear from now until 2017. Trust me; all you’ll really want for Christmas is this.
Hi, I'm Brit, the founder and CEO of Brit + Co. I'm a young mom of two, tech nerd and design-inclined lady who has a zillion hobbies and curious about... just about everything! My mission from the beginning has been to unlock women's creativity and courage to try new things so that they can find the path to their true passions.
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!
