Barbie-inspired home decor isn’t anything new. In fact, ever since the doll debuted in the late ’50s her hot pink style and girly girl persona have made their way into manner — both in home decor and fashion. It’s without a doubt that Barbie has been an icon from the start, and with the leaked photos of Greta Gerwig’s new “Barbie” movie taking over the internet, Barbiecore — alongside Y2K and ’90s style — is back. Whether it be subconscious or not, there’s something about Barbie’s colorful style and playful manner that feels familiar. Don’t get it twisted though — this doesn’t mean you should decorate your home in head-to-toe hot pink.
There are plenty of ways to introduce the Barbiecore trend into your home without feeling overwhelmed by its valor. Instead of going for big-ticket items like bright couches and bold chairs, it’s best to start with small decor items, like candles or vases, that feel less harsh and more like a nod to the trend. Remember: a Barbie dream house can be anything you want it to be. Barbie was everything after all — a surfer, a doctor, a pilot, and therefore, her style can be interpreted as anything you want.
