Barbie dream garden

“More than anything, I want a Barbie dream garden (forget the house!). So of course, I am obsessed with Haldane’s range of outdoor furniture. This subtle shade on the ‘Papa Sun’ chair blends just enough pink and apricot to make it a colour for all seasons,” - Edwain Steenkamp, Decor and Features Editor

Pink palace

“This gorgeous contemporary 70's abode was completely transformed by cosmetics giant Lancôme as a laboratory (of all things) and I'm obsessed. It's giving clinical minimalism in equal measure.” - Walter Hayward, Managing & Syndication Editor

Pretty in pink

“I am obsessing over everything PINK right now, not just because of the Barbie movie but because it is a stunning vibrant colour. And having 90% of my tattoos in pink ink helps with my loyalty to the colour. The best way to end a long day at work is a relaxing bubble bath and a glass of wine. What better way to do it in a crystalised bathtub.” - Vine Lucas, Digital Campaign Manager

Pull up a chair

“A luxe pink velvet couch has always been at the top of my wish list, but I never knew I needed a set of armchairs to match. Paired with scatter cushions in a different shade of pink, Roll and Hill prove there’s no such thing as too much pink!” - Kimberley Schoeman, Online Content Producer
