You might have Barbie to blame if you were recently unable to pick up pink paint at your local home improvement store.

“I wanted to capture what was so ridiculously fun about the Dreamhouses,” she told Architectural Digest.

“Maintaining the ‘kid-ness’ was paramount,” she added. “I wanted the pinks to be very bright, and everything to be almost too much.”

Production designer Sarah Greenwood chimed in, saying that “the world ran out of pink” as they rushed to create hand-painted sets that brought the fantasy world to life.

Fan’s wont have to wait too long to see the hot pink Dreamhouse. Barbie premieres in theaters on July 21. Press play on the trailer below!
