'I love pink and I wanted a lot of it!': Kylie Jenner's Barbie pink 'glam room' has to be seen to be believed

If there’s one person who is the epitome of modern glam, it’s Kylie Jenner. Social media influencer and founder of beauty megabrand Kylie Cosmetics, Jenner is a leading figure in the beauty industry.

Known for her ultra-glam looks, her allegiance to color and loud statements doesn’t stop at her personal style; it appears her home is a reflection of this too. Her Hidden Hills home in Los Angles is unsurprisingly a playful and glam space.

Interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who designed the home with Jenner, shared on Instagram yesterday a styled snapshot of perhaps the most synonymous room to the reality star: the ‘glam room’.

Paying tribute to this year’s much-talked-about Barbie movie, the rise of pink room ideas has been all over social media. But it appears Jenner had this trend nailed long before the Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling hit movie.

The image, above, is a loud and eclectic delight: championing a bold and youthful personality. The room has a fully pink palette of different shades, as well as Barbie artwork by artist Beau Dunn.

Jenner spoke to Architectural Digest on the design of her home, saying: ‘I told Martyn I wanted a fresh, fun vibe to match the way I was feeling. Color was essential. I love pink, and I wanted a lot of it!’

The room has two candyfloss pink swivel chairs, along with a long-pile soft, cloud-like rug positioned underfoot. Making a nod to old Hollywood, the full-width mirror features traditional circular vanity lights, making for the perfect getting-ready and selfie-taking spot. 

The room is complete with a playful neon ‘Plastic’ sign, and a fully pink countertop with custom-built storage drawers for her expansive cosmetic collections underneath. 

‘My closets and glam room are very personal to me, even down to the size of each drawer, so they fit my specific products and clothes. I spend a lot of time in those rooms, so we had to make sure they were perfect,’  Jenner tells Architectural Digest

Ksenya Malina, Principal at Time & Place Interiors, shares her take on the pink-themed interiors trend: ‘For a retro look, I love the use of pink in a room. Coupled with sophisticated fixtures like matte black detailing, a pink themed room can look like an elevated twist on a vintage style.

‘Selecting pink accents like pink glass light fixtures, a pink accent chair, or a pink rug adds a whimsical touch to a room, instantly uplifting the mood.’ 

While Barbie-inspired interiors aren’t for everyone, Jenner’s commitment to having fun with interiors to create a home that is unapologetically her own is refreshing.
