“Barbiecore” is a hot trend characterized by vivid pink hues, based on the aesthetic of the iconic Mattel doll that has been an indelible part of pop culture since 1952. And while primarily seen in fashion, Barbiecore can also be incorporated into home decor.
If the aesthetic speaks to you and you’re looking for a late summer holiday spot (or want to plan for next year), Vrbo has several fun pink rental properties all around the U.S. that have a total Barbie vibe.
In sunny Scottsdale, you can enjoy a dip in the pool even in early fall, especially when it’s a heated pool like the one at this luxury rental.

The backyard, with views of Camelback Mountain, has a private bar, grill, covered patio, hot pink mural, and neon sign. There is also a photo booth room just off the kitchen with a life-size pink “doll” box where you can pose in your Barbiecore glam.
