Has the Barbie movie made you dream of your own pink paradise? The interiors world has been drenched in this lively colour, and we’re not complaining. Together with bold patterns and retro furniture, this pretty aesthetic is a guaranteed mood booster.
What does Barbiecore mean?
Barbiecore is all about embracing a vibrant pink lifestyle, be it in the way you dress or the way you decorate your home. Today, we’re exploring the latter to help you create your own Malibu dream house.
Whether you’re looking to inject subtle pops of pink into your home or want to fully recreate Barbie’s idyllic interiors, get inspired by this popular aesthetic but put your personal twist on it.
However, there are a few key elements you need to get right in order to nail this look. First is the colour palette. This will depend on your personal taste. Are you more into soft blush tones? Or are you ready to go all out with fuchsia hues? Even better, mix and match your favourite shades of pink for a fun Barbie-inspired look.
Get your shopping cart ready and let’s take a look at how you can embrace the Barbiecore aesthetic in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom…
Barbiecore home decor for your kitchen
Picture bubblegum cabinets, magenta appliances, and fuchsia crockery… sounds dreamy, right? If you’re more of a maximalist – or simply a lover of pink – dress your walls in patterned wallpaper and match your units and decor to the same hue for a cohesive scheme.
For appliances, Smeg’s pastel fridge-freezers are ideal for recreating Barbie’s dream house aesthetic. These days you can find all your kitchen must-haves in this soothing colourway – from taps and tiles to range cookers and entertaining essentials. Scroll down to shop the look…
