Barbie Dreamhouse however make it Jungalow


As a baby, I used to construct worlds for my Barbies. I’d spend countless hours with my sisterReligion, crafting intricate realms, stitching tiny clothes from vibrant materials, and fashioning furnishings from corks, toothpicks, and bottle caps! Early experiences like these launched me to the magic of design and impressed me to change into a designer and artist. So you’ll be able to think about how excited I used to be when @BarbieStyle  reached out about what appeared like a dream collab: Jungalow designing a room in Barbie’s dreamhouse !!!

We had our first name with the Mattel staff (the kindest, most artistic bunch!) on a Friday and the next Monday we have been at their places of work perusing their classic Barbie furnishings archives, purchasing for our dreamhouse! I even received to carry Ida! It was unbelievable. The artistry and a spotlight to element that goes into constructing (or in some instances sourcing) all issues Barbie is admittedly inspiring.

We received to select completely different doll heads, physique sorts, and CLOTHES – oh the garments!

So very cool to see all of the Barbie doll heads! Their hair and make up is all the time on level!

How enjoyable is that this wardrobe choice?! We couldn’t cease oohing and awwing once we have been making our selects. Too enjoyable!

After that, we headed again to the Jungalow studio and I began concepting. I gathered inspiration photos and rendered a room that I might see Barbie and her buddies having a celebration in. The superb Mattel staff introduced my idea to life (the photograph on the very high of this weblog publish is NOT photoshopped! It was really constructed to Barbie scale–the material and textiles have been really made with our prints, and so they even created teeny tiny variations of my books! ahhh!) and now I simply wish to chill with Barbie there all day lengthy!

My hope was to create an area the place Barbie might embrace her individuality and be surrounded by a kaleidoscope of textures, hues, and flora. We recovered the classic furnishings, and upcycled and reinvented them, simply as Religion and I did as children. However, this dreamhouse isn’t only a play area; it’s an invite for Barbie, her buddies, and for all of us to nurture our personal creativity, have fun our personal uniqueness, and revel within the magic and the enjoyable of unbridled self-expression.

Come on in, let’s play, create, and have fun our internal wild little one on this jungalicious Barbie dreamhouse!
