Barbiecore home decor: Get the pink dream house look

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.

Then, when it comes to patterns, anything goes – from florals and gingham to stripes and dots. For a retro Barbie scheme, also opt for plush furniture and curved appliances.

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…

Barbiecore bedroom decor

Pink bed linen is an easy and effortless starting point for achieving this stylish aesthetic. From painted furniture and lamps to mirrors and cushions, there’s plenty of Barbiecore home decor to choose from and get the look right in your bedroom.

Plus, an emerging trend this year is focused on painted ceilings. So, why not decorate yours using a bright fuchsia shade to get that calming, cocooning feeling? Or, if you’re feeling ambitious, opt for pink patterned wallpaper.

In your dressing room, have fun with your design by adding a rug or carpet in a pared-back leopard print and LED lights for a glamorous look.

Barbiecore home decor for your bathroom

Picture pink tiles, a matching bath and basin, complete with pastel finishing touches such as towels and toiletries. This colour palette oozes a calming feeling, which is ideal for a boutique bathroom. Pair these pops of pink with gold or brass finishes and marble surfaces for a luxurious look.

The great thing about Barbiecore is that you can create a pared-back design using muted, pastel hues or a more daring scheme with a mix of magenta, aqua, and periwinkle – both aesthetics boasting a dream house feel.
