It might seem that Barbiecore is all about pink. Just take a look at furniture designer Sophie Colle’s and content creator Hannah Dahl’s homes and you may be swayed to think so. But the aesthetic is more than that. It taps into freewheeling joy, nostalgia, bursting-at-the-seams creativity—and purple and teal, too. Backdrop’s new Barbie paint collection, out today, gives the three punchy hues their due, all in celebration of the Barbie Dreamhouse’s 60th anniversary.
The cool-kid paint and wall coverings brand teamed up with Barbie to release three new colors: Barbie Dreamhouse Pink, Barbie Dreamhouse Purple, and Barbie Dreamhouse Blue (our favorite). Each shade is available exclusively on Backdrop and retails for $45 for a half gallon and $69 for a gallon.
This collaboration is Barbie’s first with an American paint brand, and ahead of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling Rollerblading onto the scene in the forthcoming Barbie film, it seems very well timed. So if you—or your 7-year-old self—are inspired, break out your brushes and painter’s tape, throw on a jumpsuit, and add one or all three of these shades to your walls, ceiling, floors, doors, or pool slide (joking; don’t try that last one). You might just end up with your own Dreamhouse.
