Barbie or Oppenheimer? The choice is yours!

Posted underBlog

Two contrasting trends have captured the imagination of designers: the vibrant and lively Barbie aesthetic versus the moody and introspective Oppenheimer aesthetic. 

Whilst there may be debate over their respective box office results, at Styled Interior Design we know these two design styles both have their own unique charm.

We must mention the iconic Malibu Barbie Airbnb, designed by Ken himself. It includes enough Pantone 219 C to keep the shelves cleared for a few years, bold pops of colour, and plenty of fun. It’s a celebration of youth, energy, and joy, making it the perfect choice for those who want a holiday where playtime is never over!

Styled Interior Design has breathed new life into countless spaces, by incorporating playful colours, bold patterns, and creative design elements. From these designs clients have witnessed a surge in bookings and occupancy rates, proving that a vibrant interior can be a powerful tool in attracting guests seeking a memorable holiday experience.

In contrast, the Oppenheimer aesthetic delves into the profound realms of darkness and introspection. This trend embraces deeper shades, muted tones, and a sense of mystery. The allure of Oppenheimer lies in its ability to evoke emotions, create an intimate atmosphere, and provide a sanctuary for contemplation amidst the chaos of the world.

Darker colours aren’t the villains they’re made out to be. Contrary to the misconception that darker spaces feel gloomy, the right use of darker hues can add depth and sophistication to any room. It provides an ideal backdrop for showcasing artwork, intricate details, and statement pieces, allowing them to stand out brilliantly. Moreover, darker colours can create a sense of warmth and intimacy, making it perfect for cosy living areas or bedrooms.

In the end the choice between Barbie vs Oppenheimer boils down to personal preference. Interior design is a form of self-expression, and each person’s home should reflect their unique taste and personality. It’s not about following the trend; it’s about being true to yourself, whether that be in your interior design choices or your box office choices.  

So, what’s it going to be? Barbie’s bright and bubbly world or Oppenheimer’s captivating embrace of darkness? The choice is yours.
