Barbiecore in Kitchen and Design
July 20, 2023 by Big Chill
Barbie, the iconic fashion doll we all know, has everyone thinking pink with the Barbiecore trend. What is Barbiecore? A fashion trend and movement defined by pink. But Barbiecore does not stop with all pink fashion, it has also inspired home design.
HGTV’s Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge is a show featuring eight teams of HGTV design stars transforming a Southern California home into a real-life Barbie Dreamhouse! It is hosted by supermodel, designer, and entrepreneur Ashley Graham. Design teams transform a space inspired by a Barbie decade, and a winner is chosen each week. The show premiered Sunday, July 16th. It is a four-part series, airing every Sunday, with the finale on August 6 where one design will be declared the “Dreamiest” of them all
We were so excited to see our 30” Retropolitan Fridge, 36” Retro Gas Stove, 36” Retro Bungalow Vent Hood, 30” Electric Wall oven, and 24” Retro Dishwasher in Light Ivory on the Barbie Dreamhouse Challenge! Designers Jasmine Roth and Antonia Lofaso won week one with their 60s inspired kitchen and family room. Their winning design showed they didn’t have to use all pink to stay with the Barbiecore trend.
The designers did not shy away from pink! They used it in the most creative and fun way with Big Chill’s countertop kitchen appliances - Retro Blender and Retro Toaster in Pink Lemonade, and 22” Pro Microwave in Premium Orange. The Lemonade Pink Retro Blender and Retro Toaster were showcased beautifully with Jasmine and Antonia’s design of a hidden compartment in the kitchen countertop.
