What is Barbiecore?

With the new Barbie movie set to hit our screens in 2023, we are more inspired than ever by our iconic childhood playmate. Embracing a pink Y2K aesthetic is all the rage. Think hot pink, candy pink and all things glitter and feathers. Try turning a corner of your home into a slice of escapism that gives you that Elle Woods-inspired trend moment where less is not more!

Think Pink!

You can never have too much pink! Create the kitsch look by layering pink tones on more pink. Incorporating a fluffy rug with a hot pink ottoman perfectly complements each other to give a sophisticated yet fun Barbie world look. With no rules to break, allow yourself to be led by your pink dreams!

No need to revamp your home completely; adding subtle nods to Barbiecore is enough; try popping a retro table lamp on a bedside table, paired with a funky pink mirror bringing an effortless touch of the Barbie House effect to any bedroom!

Flirty textures

The more textures, the better! Get the dramatic Barbie look by combining a variety of textures in tones of pink, crushed velvet, silk, satin, glitter and, of course, feathers! Try layering a soft pink throw with deep pink crushed velvet cushions, for a perfectly paired flirty fun space to start living in a Barbie World.
