If you haven’t already heard the news, HGTV is here to remind us all that there’s a new “Barbie” movie coming out next year, complete with an A-list cast and plenty of pink. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will be leading as Barbie and Ken respectively, and America Ferrera, Simu Liu, and Will Ferrell also star in the upcoming romantic comedy film based on the iconic Mattel toys.

Earlier this week, the HGTV Instagram account shared a photo collage that featured Robbie and Gosling in movie stills, along with a snap of a neon kitchen that really makes a bold statement.

“Adding Barbie, Ken, and their kitchen to our summer mood board,” the caption reads.

The kitchen in question features neon green cabinetry, neon pink countertops, and a neon orange feature wall. Basically, it’s straight out of a Barbie wonderland. And while you may think it’s a still from a set of the upcoming movie, you’d be mistaken. The space is actually a real kitchen in someone’s house.

The eye-catching space, according to Star Tribune, was designed by Elina Katsioula-Beall of DeWitt Designer Kitchens. Katsioula-Beall worked with the property’s owners in 2015 to create a bright and colorful kitchen that looks like it’s straight out of a Crayola box (or, you know, a Barbie movie starring Robbie and Gosling). The owners envisioned an Alice in Wonderland-esque space for their Pasadena home, as well as wanting to bring in a touch of the outdoors. To achieve this, Katsioula-Beall incorporated iridescent tiles and a silver painted backsplash, in addition to the neon color palette.

HGTV fans were quick to comment on the vibrant space that certainly grabbed a bunch of attention.

“Oh my gosh! Wow!” one person wrote.

“So much fun!!!” another added.

A third commented: “Love this!! Thank you for sharing!!”

“Barbie” is set to be released in theaters in July 2023.
