Is Your Home Ready for a Barbie Party?

With the Barbie movie doing great business in cinemas, pink is in – but how can you turn your home and garden into the perfect venue for a Barbie party?

With the hit movie starring Margot Robbie playing our favourite retro doll, and Ryan Gosling her plastic boyfriend Ken, everyone will be planning a Barbie home or garden party.

The ‘barbiecore’ movement has already taken root in interior design, with the pink-coloured Y2K aesthetic all the rage. Nadia McCowan Hill, style advisor for Wayfair, says: “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 inspired trend moment where less is not more!”

Think Pink

You can never have too much pink for a Barbie theme. Create the kitsch look by layering pink tones on more pink. Indoors, 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!

There’s 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!


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.

For your Barbie-themed summer barbecue, try Wayfair’s Aadhvika Bistro set at £153.99, available in a range of colours including Barbie pink. The set includes a dining table and two chairs, all for practical storage when not in use. Check out the rest of Wayfair’s garden range at
