Creating a rainbow-themed bedroom is a brilliant way to inject colour into your room decor, but it’s particularly effective in a kid’s room or nursery.
The rainbow as a symbol has always been associated with children and learning. After all, the colours of the rainbow is one of the first educational songs we learn; there’s something irresistible about adding these primary colours to a room.
To create your very own sky-inspired interiors, there’s just so much you can do but it’s got to include the perfect rainbow wall…
APPLY RAINBOW WALLPAPER
Create a calming, whimsical feel with one rainbow or go for a patterned cluster to truly bring the theme alive. The trick here is to keep your furniture simple against the bright colours of the walls.
paint a rainbow wall
Whether you’re looking to create one feature wall or extend your rainbow across the room, London-based interior designer Melanie Lissack has designed the most perfect mural.
You can DIY your very own rainbow wall with decorators tape and tester pots!
add rainbow wall stickers
For a subtle take on rainbow interiors, rainbow stickers are a great way to create interest in modern nursery. Think: muted, gender-neutral shades complemented by small hints of bright colour.
Alternatively, add just one wall decal to a painted, block colour wall.
Or go off the usual track and add coloured spots as an interesting alternative!
Go bold with your walls
Providing you keep furniture and accessories simple with just a few pastel colours, the sky’s the limit on what you can do with your walls.
OR Use soft wall colours
For a calming rainbow room instead, you could opt for a traditional sky effect with a sky blue but pink, grey, cream or light green shades, such as mint, can work just as well.
The key is not to overpower the room with too much colour!
get playful with rainbow accessories
If you’re looking to quickly update a plain room into a rainbow haven without too much fuss, adding rainbow themed accessories can transform a room just as easily as a new lick of paint.
Candy coloured walls can instantly become rainbow-themed with a mix of hanging cloud pendants and mobiles, coloured pom pom strings or string flags, rainbow headboards and cushions, and pastel doll houses.

Consider adding rainbow stairs
This room, designed by Andy Martin Architecture, is a perfect example of creating an unconventional rainbow room that’s not necessarily all about bright colours.
A mostly white play area received a pop of fun colour from some rainbow stairs, where each stair is a different colour.
