If you’re counting down the days until the Barbie movie is released next month, we’ve been given a sneak peek into the world of the iconic doll thanks to a recent house tour video like no other.
The film’s star Margot Robbie showed off the real-life Barbie Dreamhouse from the movie over on Architectural Digest’s YouTube channel.
As expected, there is a lot of pink. So much pink that the movie allegedly caused a worldwide shortage of pink paint during filming. There’s everything from a pink fridge, toaster, stove and dining room table in the kitchen, to a magical Clueless-style pink wardrobe that houses all of Barbie’s clothing and accessories.
In the video, the movie’s director Greta Gerwig revealed, “I wanted to capture what was so ridiculously fun about the Dreamhouses. We sat with all these different kinds of pinks and we were like, ‘What is the pink? How do the pinks interact?’ When I was a girl, I wanted the brightest things.”
But it’s not just all about Barbie’s favorite color. Specific details bring the Dreamhouse to life while also giving a nod to the dollhouses that children the world over grew up playing with. For example, the kitchen had decals of food instead of real food. Even the hair brushes and toothbrushes are larger than life, giving viewers that true doll-like experience.
When it comes to Robbie’s favorite detail in the Dreamhouse, it is the giant twisty water slide that connects Barbie’s bedroom to the waterless pool.
Robbie recalled having that one special request when the Dreamhouse came to life. “Please, please, please can we have a Dreamhouse where she has a slide that goes from her bedroom down to her pool because that is my goal in life,” the actor asked the director.
The house itself was influenced by 1950s and early 1960s design—with the famous doll being invented in 1959—and immediately conjures up the feeling of a mid-century Palm Springs home.
Fans have taken to social media to share their excitement.
One person tweeted: “need to live in the barbie dreamhouse immediately.”
While another added: “waking up in the barbie dreamhouse would solve all of my problems.”
A third affirmed: “the barbie dreamhouse set tour on architectural digest. oh i was sat. best 7 mins and 25 seconds i’ve ever spent on youtube.”
The Dreamhouse will be up on the big screen very soon when the movie comes out on July 21.
