Demi Moore may be a fan of LBDs as far as fashion goes (see: her sequined, black & white gown for the premiere of Feud: Capote vs. The Swans), but when it comes to interiors, the actor likes to play with Barbie pink.
In a series of photos posted before the premiere of Feud, Demi posed in front of a rose-colored door, complemented by dark wood floors and matching pink decals on the white walls.
It's no secret that decorating with pink has been on our minds over the last several months; between Barbie-core and the recent Mean Girls release, we are embracing pink in all its forms, from flowers to home decor. Painted walls are, naturally, the next step.

'If you’re going to use pink to paint your walls, it should be the main feature,' says interior and paint expert Sarah Lloyd. 'As it’s such an eye-catching statement color, keep your furniture low key and minimal with clean lines to draw attention to your walls.'
Color and paint expert Sarah Lloyd is a senior brand manager at Valspar and has worked for the paint brand over the last three years.
Pink is most definitely the new black in that the color combination options are endless. Sarah recommends starting with an equally opulent choice.
'Create a luxurious and decadent vibe with pink’s best friend – gold! Gold trim or accessories add touches of glamour and can work especially well with a darker, duskier pink,' she says. 'Just as Barbie would accessorize her pink outfits with gold jewelry, follow this color combination in the house. '
If mattes are preferable over shimmer, Sarah suggests dark greens and deep navy blues to create an interesting color palette and balance out the punchiness of pink.
'Try finding a painting or cushions that have subtle hues of pink and a shade that ‘pops’ against the background color. Let the pink subtly work itself around the house for a soft touch of Barbie-core rather than a full redecoration.'
Finally, though it's easy to infuse pink behind closed doors, such as in the bathroom or bedroom, Sarah encourages us to go bold and display the color right where visitors can see it.
'As pink is naturally a very playful color, there is so much scope to go a little wild if that’s where your personality takes you,' she says. 'Your entryway is a great place to showcase a more creative side, as it’s a space that everyone will see as soon as they enter your home. Why not have a play around with different color combinations of pink all the way up your staircase, or how about pink spindles to guide you up to your next level?'
We're taking notes. Below, find some inspiring pink home picks.
