April 2012


Happy April! This month we're headed to Malibu, CA, to visit Barbie's adorable dream home...

Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there?

Malibu, CA. Our home was originally built in 1962, two years before my little sister Skipper was born. This house has gone through several major renovations throughout the years.
What is your favorite decorating style?
Since I live so close to the beach, in Malibu, I'm inspired by dolphins and seashells, and love all things monogrammed and pink!

Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?

Actually, my husband Ken is the one who loves to decorate. Besides being fantastically fashionable, he has great decorating style. It's curious how open he is to all the glam furnishings in our dream home.
In 5 words of less, your home is?

Pink, Sparkly, Plastic and Dreamy!
What is your favorite store to shop at?
FAO Schwarz

Share one of your favorite decorating tips or ideas:

I love our elevator! It's the perfect accessory for hoisting all my furniture up to our second floor.
Your favorite paint color, name and brand:

What are your favorite things to collect right now?

I love collecting tons of accessories, particularly shoes. But when it comes to our home, I love to collect anything with pink hearts on it.

What is your favorite room in your house, and why?
I love our kitchen. Our pans never get dirty, and our fridge is always stocked. Come to think of it, the milk and eggs never seem to go bad!
Your next project is:
Ken and I have big plans! Instead of going pink, we're going green: solar panels on the roof, bamboo flooring, zero-VOC paint, EnergyStar appliances and low-flow toilets.
April Fools!!!
