Margot Robbie Takes You Inside The Barbie Dreamhouse | Architectural DigestJul 17, 2023
welcome to bobby's dream house come on this is my breakfast table and my kitchen right now we are in the living room here is a fun little bar and the slide that goes from the bedroom to the pool is not very practical, but nothing is for Bobby. fun and beautiful and it's transparent so we can see all the Barbies in their own dream houses Barbie wake up in the morning and can greet each other so many references and I can't even tell you the meetings we had. I've had about pink, we like it, we sat with all these different types of roses and we wondered what pink is and how pinks interact because I didn't want it to be so fancy that I didn't like it when it was a little bit.
Girl, I liked pinker, brighter things, but this is our white, this is our palest pink, that's our white. It was pretty amazing seeing this set for the first time, it was a bit surreal because you've spent so much time looking at the miniatures and models. The drawings and the design you know what it would look like and then when you see it first hand in real life it's all there and it's like I don't know, it was really exciting when we first walked onto this set. We were like we were in reality, so we don't have to imagine everything, it's just there in front of us.

How special is it that, because Barbie was invented in 1959, we felt we could base everything on that '50s look. Sound Stage Musicals Gene Kelly Vincent Minnelli likes those kinds of wonderfully fake but emotionally artificial spaces. One thing that, like Sound Stage musicals, was beautiful artificial skies. There is a kind of surrealism in the color grading that obtains a blue sky that we are painting. White clouds over it and when you turn them on, you can light them in these intense colors so you can light pink and orange from below. Blue from above, you can go a little expressionistic.
Sarah Greenwood, our production designer, Katie and her entire team. I just did the most extraordinary job putting this together. Many of the things you see are actually handmade. It's pretty amazing what they can do, how they can design things in miniatures and then replicate them. Our main time period was from the invention of Barbie to now they are timeless pieces that also have an echo of the real toys that are in Dreamhouse that Mattel made today. It's very simple, clear and beautiful and that was one of Greta's key words: it has to be beautiful, it has to be beautiful like well, walking into those environments and feeling the kind of art, the love and the joy, it was so exciting. , you are the only thing that was a surprise to all the little monkeys, if you see any monkeys around, I never saw them. in the drawings and I started to prepare it, I enjoyed it.
I love bubble bath. My favorite design feature is obviously the slide that goes into the pool and now we do a whole part on Barbie's Day where she slides down the pool to get down and have breakfast having it properly from the late 50's to the 60's was a great influence of that kind of modernist furniture that appeared in the kitchen, so we have a mixture of things that you already know are physically there, but then also adhesive because again we are playing in the world of toys and what it would look like if it were a product Mattel, our kitchen is a great example of that, so on the back you just have a sticker, you know, it's intentionally 2D and it's that thing where we want things to be obviously artificial but still very satisfying come and look at the phone there is no water in Barbie land there is no water or fire there are no elements it is actually funny to see how many people avoid walking, everyone walks around the pool although it is fake, it is really beautiful, like everything in Barbie land, let's take a look A look upstairs, we're right next to Bobby's wardrobe and this is where she brushes her hair.
Avana, our hair makeup designer, and I have had a lot of fun. In this work there have been many wigs, but all the Barbies can really change her hair in impossible and unreal magical ways. In one scene, she might have her hair up here and then in the next scene, she's a giant long ponytail. I want everyone to feel it. like they could reach up to the screen and touch everything, I mean with so much emotion, just remembering like standing in Toys R Us looking at Barbies with the plastic sheet over them and everything in you wanted to take it off, take everything apart and touch everything, just talking about aggressiveness. wanting to enter the box that is actually Barbie's wardrobe, this is the beautiful wardrobe that opens and there are all the clothes, yes, this was a design issue that we were very excited about.
We were saying that the wardrobe had no idea, as if the bar was set too high. and we would really like to make something that is as cool as that
barbieevery day her outfit is already magically here in her closet she opens the doors all she needs to do is look at it she
takesa spin and then it's on her body she walks around with no clothes on for the day next she's sitting in the closet behind her this is bobby's toothbrush this is how she brushes her teeth this is her shower of course there's no water in
barbieland but she showers anyway i would actually just watch up old redox commercials and try to replicate that good night Barbies I'm definitely not thinking about death anymore go up and see Barbie's bedroom she wakes up with perfect hair no morning breath her pajamas are incredibly ironed and she's still beautiful and feeling very full of energy for another Perfect Day in Barbie Land, so from the way Bobby gets into her car, she walks to the edge and floats impossibly inside her car.
Credit said you know no one actually carries their Barbie up the stairs to get into the car. thing and just place them on the next thing and as you can see Barbie has an amazing view of Barbie land from here and she can see where all of her friends are. Emma's Barbie House. Barbie Anna's house. Bobby Alex's house and that's where Skipper and Midge live in Skipper's little Tree House which you may have noticed was a replication of the real toy which we consider a heritage site so now Bobby is ready to start his perfect day.
This is where he receives mail from him. By the way, all the rides in Barbie land are. In reality they are just gibberish, they are just scribbles that children write infinite amounts of things that you know nothing about, but it is all very beautiful. Thank you for coming to see the house of your dreams. I have to get back to the set now, bye.
