So you’ve seen Coastal Grandmother—that breezy, Nancy Meyers-inspired aesthetic—*blowing up* on your TikTok feed this summer. Yet, as much as we adore loose linen textiles and blue-striped-finished everything, there’s a new home trend on the horizon—and it all started with BTS photos of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling filming Barbie (which hits theaters July 21, 2023). Indeed, Barbiecore has arrived, and it’s the bold, bubblegum-pink-inspired trend that’s picking up the Coastal Grandmother look, and spinning it on its head.

“We’ve seen trends start with fashion and evolve to home décor, like [with] Coastal Grandmother, and [Barbiecore] will be the same,” explains Mark Feldman, chief home officer of Riverbend Home. Think: candy-colored accents, bold patterns, luxe Lucite and '80s style furnishings, and of course, lots of Barbie-inspired artwork.“You can go with an all-pink room, but sprinkling in accents like acrylic chairs, groovy pink lamps [or an] eye-catching pink rug [will] create a Barbie Mansion-inspired room full of nostalgia and fun,” Feldman adds.
