Barbie Kennedy grew up surrounded by her father’s passion for the family tile business and her mother’s love for creating beautiful artwork. She has shaped her career by using the tools she was given by her parents to blend her tile knowledge and artistic skills to develop unique designs that push the boundaries—infusing unexpected materials in expected patterns.
The Garden Party collection derives from Barbie’s life in Florida, surrounded by tropical gardens, elaborate iron gates, and creative landscape architecture—supplemented by a mom who gave her a green thumb. While inspired by Mother Nature, this collection also displays how Barbie’s unique perception of shapes can be interpreted into tile patterns and art. Using multiple hues of natural materials, the Garden Party comes alive with the precise attention to every detail.
