You Can Turn Your Home Into a Barbiecore Dreamhouse With These 12 Items
Elle Woods is freaking out RN.
While Barbie’s iconic head-to-toe pink lewk has been around since the doll first hit shelves in the late ‘50s, her bubblegum-hued wardrobe and attitude has had a recent resurgence. In part, this can all be traced back to those behind-the-scenes photos of Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken’s blonde bombshell doppelgänger in Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie movie. Simultaneously, fashion-forward celebs like Vanessa Hudgens and Lizzo have had a hand in spreading barbiecore like wildfire, too. Now, the barbiecore trend is taking over home decor.
If you had a Barbie dreamhouse growing up, your obsession with styling a home probably began at the wee age of 4. And if you had a little brother like moi, you know how frustrating it was to come home from kindergarten to find Barbie’s mansion in ruins. Who said Barbie was done in the kitchen or watching TV? In the words of Kelly Kapoor (who we all very well know would appreciate the heck out of barbicore), how dare you?!
Well, now’s your chance as an adult to barbiecore your space for real! From monochromatic pink martini glasses and accent wallpaper, to pink statement furniture and Barbie-inspired art work, these items will turn your home into an actual Barbie dreamhouse.
