malibu dream house

i'm not ashamed to say that i LOOOVED playing with barbies when i was a kid. my sister and i played for hours, and i entered her into a contest that won her the barbie dream house when she was about 5. once that house came into the mix, it was all about which one of us would use that, and which one of us would use the fold-n-fun house, the "loser" settling for the latter. i often "won" the dream house simply by virtue of being the oldest.

now this is a bit over-the-top, but a giant handwoven rug with an inital "B" stamped in the center? the mid-mod sunurst mirror? jonathan adler? i'm all over it.

my video pick of the week: barbie's maliu dream house.

(via retro renovation)


  1. love it!!! From a fellow barbie lover

  2. B...I had the dreamhouse also. Santa brought it with all the details, food, silverware, toilet. Anyway, i used to get a small piece of tan bark and put it in the toilet to make it more realistic. What a strange and kind of gross kid I was. Paula
