You’d be forgiven for thinking the ‘Barbie penthouse’ might be a garishly decorated property splashed in every shade of pink. However, it couldn’t be further from the truth.
In fact, the Barbie penthouse is on sale for $9,999,888 and is the last word in glamor, boasting sumptuous finishes and statement art.
The home has picked up its moniker as it was once owned by Barbara 'Barbie' Segal, the inspiration for the original Barbie doll, whose parents were Ruth and Elliot Handler, founders of Mattel Toys. Interior designer Nicole Sassaman purchased the home from Barbie back in 2012.
The home is located on the top floor of a full-service I.M. Pei architectural masterpiece and boasts 3200 square feet of living space. Finishes are luxurious, with inviting shaggy rugs, velvet armchairs and oversized contemporary art.
The open plan lounge room boasts a 12-foot height and floor-to-ceiling windows to drink in those stunning views over the LA skyline.
An elegant piano and wine rack wall are elevated living room ideas that are perfect for consummate entertainers.
Meanwhile, the plush kitchen ideas are beautiful, with vintage modern glamor-style starburst pendants, an apothecary-style cabinet, and a full marble wall.
The posh pad is home to three bedrooms and bathrooms, all of which have received the glamor treatment. The four-poster bed in the master suite is the perfect spot to soak up your morning coffee along with the exclusive vista.
And, if you've got space, an integrated office area is a great bedroom idea, especially if the scene outside is this level of outstanding.
And, when it's time for a relaxing soak, there are three bathrooms to choose from, with the master bathroom offering a sleek yet cozy retreat, where contemporary vanity units meet luxurious soft furnishings.
