Black and Pink House meme format depicting a pink and purple house contrasted by a black house next door.


Black and Pink Meme Houses, also known as the Sherbet Homes, Barbie's House IRL or the Santa Monica Meme Houses, refers to a pair of neighboring beach houses in Santa Monica, California in which one is painted black and the other is painted in a pink and purple color scheme. Multiple photos of the homes have been used as an object-labeling meme and in image macros since as early as 2016, usually to make comparisons between two things due to their contrasting appearances.


The homes, located on Palisades Beach Road in Santa Monica, California, are known as the "Sherbet Homes." Zillow[2] estimates the "Barbie house" at around $6 million (additional photos of the pink house shown below).


On September 7th, 2015, Redditor u/zenaidnog90 posted a photograph of the Sherbet Homes to /r/pics[1] captioned, "Voldemort and Barbie are neighbors!," garnering over 11,400 upvotes in six years. This is one of the earliest popular memes using the Sherbet homes.


On August 4th, 2018, Twitter[3] user @divermylove posted an image of the homes captioned, "the sexual tension between these two beach houses???? lmao," gaining over 79,600 likes and 15,000 retweets in three years (shown below).

On September 3rd, Redditor u/lookaroundewe posted a photoshop of the image to /r/pics,[4] making it resemble the Piper Perri Surrounded meme, gaining over 1,000 upvotes in three years (shown below, left). On April 17th, 2020, Tumblr[5] user webskylar posted a meme using the image to compare Kingdom Hearts' plot (black house) to its character design (pink house), gaining over 6,000 notes in a year (shown below, right).
