We’ve seen a lot of celebrity homes we love, but we’ve clearly found a new favorite. The hottest new home in Malibu belongs to @barbiestyle, and she has stellar taste. Inspired by California Cool (obviously), Babs’ new mid-century modern spot boasts geometric lines, bright accents, and tons of natural light. You’ll notice how easily Barbie has mastered Cali-essential indoor/outdoor living, giving herself ample opportunities to entertain indoors as well as out, flawlessly. Join us on a photo tour of Barbie’s latest real estate moment, and maybe even steal a style tip or two from an icon.
Above, the home’s open-beam architecture and large glass windows allow Barbie to welcome guests into an airy, light-filled space. Her living room has ample seating, and Girls Night In is always comfy and stylish.
Barbie’s breakfast nook connects to a modern kitchen equipped with energy-efficient appliances and an open, see-through countertop design. Prior to beginning a busy morning, she can enjoy a cup of coffee while catching up on the news of the day
Downtime is always a breeze at Barbie’s house. Her outside space features a pool, of course, for enjoying the abundant sunshine Malibu offers up. She was certain to include plenty of nature’s accents in her outside space through desert-style landscaping, including succulents, cacti, and native cliffside palms. But if she isn’t in the mood for the pool, Barbie has a back staircase that leads her directly down to the ocean!
Barbie’s hammock is perfect for relaxing after a long day, or perhaps reading the paper on a Saturday morning. There’s a grill nearby for impromptu dinners at home with friends, and Barbie’s dog, Ms. Honey, enjoys the grassy areas outside very much.
Barbie’s living area is the perfect blend of cozy and chic modernity. Her lucite coffee table, posh mid-century floor lamp, and gallery wall are all pages out of our favorite decor playbooks. Lighting a candle and relaxing on the couch with her favorite magazine (hint, hint) is an ideal way to unwind after a long day.
