How to Style Your Home with the Barbiecore Aesthetic

Date: December 2nd, 2022 CTD Tiles

Think Pink! Showcasing a fun and nostalgic aesthetic, pink chromas are dancing their way into interior spaces in light of the new Barbie movie premiering in 2023. Whether you fancy the full Barbie Dream Land look or just a few pretty-in-pink accents, expect an influx of the much-welcomed pink colour palette in the new year.

If you’re ready to join the pink team, then read on to find out how you can best embrace this vibrant hue at home!

Pink in Living Rooms

Inject flamboyancy into your living room with a touch of hot pink and create a space that exudes abundant style. Whilst pink is often associated with softer more romantic interiors, it is now being applied in innovative ways to add vibrancy to neutral and conventional schemes.

For those with a bold personality, consider a pink colour drenched look to create impact and intrigue within your space – everyone will be asking to have the after party at yours! But if you’re looking for something a little more civilised, then opt for pink detailing instead. This gives you freedom when it comes to styling, allowing you to embrace a variety of other colours and patterns. As seen with our Cuban White Star Floor Tiles, the pink decorative pieces work seamlessly with the monochrome patterned floor tiles and bold green tones.

Think Pink in the Kitchen

From drab to fab, kitchen designs are becoming more and more creative by the day, transforming a once practical space into a room expressing personality and interior flair. Whether you opt for pink wall tiles, pink cabinets or pink utensils, don’t be afraid to try out something new to set the tone.

If the hot pink look isn’t for you, then why not consider a softer hue that’s easier on the eye? Our stunning Poitiers Rose Pink Gloss Tiles can inject subtle interest, especially when used in a herringbone formation. They can complement the modern farmhouse look, making them perfect for cottage-like aesthetics and traditional design schemes.

But if you don’t want the commitment of pink tiles, we recommend painting your cabinets pink so that you can switch it up down the line. Our Poitiers Bordeaux tiles work particularly well with this approach, and can be accentuated with brushed brass detailing and personal touches for the perfect finished look.

Barbiecore Bathrooms

In 2023, get ready to say goodbye to boring and hello to colour confidence and vibrant palettes! With the recent demand in creating a bathroom space that is uplifting and mood boosting, a pink bathroom will definitely bring energy back into your morning routines, with a hint of vogue!

There are multiple avenues you can take when incorporating this playful colour into the bathroom. Interior designer @dalodudesign has proved exactly this by transforming their client's bathroom with a classic metro tile look using the Poitiers Pink Rose Gloss Tiles!

For a more playful style, then our Nador Pink Gloss Tiles can add an element of comfort and warmth to the room; or for a more contemporary angle, opt for our Varadero Rose Hexagon wall tiles. The geometric design boasts contemporary flavour, and pairs exceptionally well with matt black.

Pink Bedrooms

Thinking of transforming your bedroom into the boudoir you’ve always dreamt of? Small or large, using the colour pink can enhance the look and feel of the bedroom entirely.

Embrace cohesive design with pink soft furnishings and create a clean and comforting look, allowing you to fully relax in your own space. But if you want something that really boasts self-expression, then choose an array of saturated or dark shades to contrast the innocence of the pretty pink tone. Whether you go for a more artistic approach with a feature wall or create visual interest with your quirky furniture, ensure to create a pink bedroom design that truly reflects you.
