The new “Barbiecore” trend has officially hit interior design since it recently made an appearance in celebrity fashion and pop culture.

Blog writer Melissa Dittman Tracey, a contributor to Realtor Magazine, wrote about the aesthetic and how it features playful designs, lots of color and all things pink.
