In an unusual twist, it has been reported that the set construction for the next live-action Barbie film was so demanding that Barbies Film Set Ran Out Of Pink Paint. According to Variety, production designer Sarah Greenwood revealed that this unexpected problem stemmed from the team's desire to properly reproduce Barbie's world, particularly the iconic Dreamhouse, with a rigorous attention to detail that extended even to the hue of the paint.

In an unusual twist, it has been reported that the set construction for the next live-action Barbie film was so demanding that there was a worldwide scarcity of pink paint. The team, which included filmmaker Greta Gerwig, set decorator Katie Spencer, and Greenwood, set out to reflect Barbie's world's unbridled pleasure and whimsicality. Gerwig stated that it was critical for them to capture the essence of "kid-ness" that distinguished Barbie for her and millions of others around the world. According to Architectural Digest, the filmmaker went on to explain the idea behind the film's distinct design aesthetics.
"Why walk down stairs when you can slide into your pool? Why trudge up stairs when you take an elevator that matches your dress?" This concept was realized by converting Barbie's world into a sea of pink and extending the color motif to props, sets, costumes, and anything else within the film's frame. Rosco provided the one-of-a-kind pink color that was essential to the project. However, demand was so great that the production team ended up exhausting the entire stock of the corporation. The surprising scarcity of the unique shade of pink surprised even Greenwood, who remarked..."The world ran out of pink."
The team had methodically built the set on Warner Brothers' London lot before provoking the pink paint problem. The set design was inspired by a variety of sources, including the Kaufmann House in Palm Springs, a Queen Anne Victorian mansion in San Francisco, Wayne Thiebaud's paintings, and well-known films such as Pee-wee's Big Adventure and An American in Paris.
Lauren Proud, Rosco's VP of global marketing, confirmed the paint shortage story, saying that they did "clean us out on paint." The company had to work extra hard to keep up with the demand, delivering the crew with as much paint as possible.
