5 Pink-Inspired Apartment Designs for Dollhouse Lovers

Barbie fascination, coral pillows and pink ribbons might suggest that you’re a Barbiecore fan. Although the famous doll has maintained her popularity throughout the years with children, Barbie has also made a true comeback with young adults, as well. In fact, many of them have chosen to turn their homes into something similar to the famous “dream house.”

Although Barbie style has evolved significantly throughout the years, adapting it to reflect current trends is not as simple. Pink is an elegant, graceful and feminine color, but if you want to paint your bedroom (or entire apartment) pink, keep in mind that it’s not an easy color to match.

Fortunately, Instagram once again provides you with the support of passionate and talented people. So, we selected some pink design influencers to guide you in redesigning your apartment into a Barbie dollhouse. If pink and shades of watermelon, bubblegum, or bright fuchsia make you excited, this article is really for you.

  1. @luvmyabode

Lizzie of @luvmyabode used pastel pink, gold, white and other powdered colors to transform her apartment into a doll’s home. Specifically, the gorgeous pastel fabric and blue glass candlestick holders give the shelves a regal appearance. Meanwhile, the little porcelain flower vases, fireplace and golden ornaments provide a chromatic balance to the pastel pink design. By combining pink hues on the walls and furniture, Lizzie manages to create a harmony of calming, complementary tones that truly give you a serene feeling.

There’s something quite comforting about all those delicate pink tones, too. So, if you fancy the idea of being surrounded by such warmth day by day, you might get just the inspiration you seek from this Instagram account.

  1. @letsgotopoppys

If you want a fresher, more dynamic look, @letsgotopoppys may inspire you to redesign your apartment! Strawberry pink and magenta are mixed with lavender purple, turquoise, and teal undertones. There are hints of salmon pink and lime green, as well.

Notably, the apartment has an air of sophistication due to its variety of hues and complex combination of patterns. While brighter tones provide a sense of purity, delicacy and softness, more saturated colors balance them out with their vibrancy. At the same time, decorative flowers refresh the decor, while mirrors make the space appear larger. This Instagram account will certainly show that different pinks give off different vibes.

Who knew that glitter and rhinestones suited pink so well? @jessysdreamhouse’s design demonstrates that it’s not just the colors that make a beautiful Barbiecore interior design, but also the materials used. In particular, velvet and silk give an air of richness to the look, and the contrasts between bubblegum pink and orchid purple truly make you feel like you’re part of the Barbie world. Plus, crystal lamps, fluffy cushions, and soft carpets create a clean and cozy atmosphere in the apartment.

And, what’s cuter than hearts and bears? This look flawlessly blends cutesy toys with grown-up decor. If you’re looking to have the iconic doll’s dream place, then this Instagram account can help you get closer to your ideal. Get inspired here and you’ll discover that “living in plastic is truly fantastic.”

Charlotte of @wiltshirewonderland is an inspiration to many DIY enthusiasts and tackles the aesthetics of vintage tea parties. If you’ve ever considered painting your fridge pink, this Instagram account will show you how to do it step by step! There are also several ideas for wall art, painted tiles and colorful wallpapers.

Here, tangerine orange, cherry pink, lilac purple, and faded red are spread in every nook and corner — from small, lidded jars to airlock cereal containers and even the egg holder. This look is then completed with some scalloped bowls and plates; floral plant pots; and statement vases. You may even get closer to Barbie’s dreamhouse by avoiding clutter and buying statement pieces or even creating them. Who would have guessed that reusing items could be so efficient?

Perhaps this article has inspired you to renovate your apartment in the pink spirit. Besides, head-to-toe fuchsia is not just girly, but also feminine, regal and comforting. And, with so many ways to play with this color, the hardest part will be choosing what works best for you!
