How do you tastefully welcome a bevy of colors? Is it really doable? The most successful rainbow spaces limit clutter, reserve some areas of the room for neutral tones, and favor modern design over “cutesy” motifs. Rainbow rooms can quickly take a turn for the tacky.  There are various ways by which you can implement the concept of multiple colors of VIBGYOR theory which stands for violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange and red respectively. By making some elements of the space minimalist, this rainbow feature stands out in a meaningful way, rather than overwhelming the room’s inhabitants.  After all, when you’re using rainbow as your base-color, everything you choose matches! You can enrich your home with lovely colors and make them look pretty by nurturing these rainbow inspired home decor styles:  

Paint your own rainbow wall:

If you want to paint your wall in a rainbow accent, first you need to mix the colours well together. You can buy pre-mixed colours as well.  Next you have to choose the design. Vertical lines are going to be less busy and easier to decorate a room around. The only thing that would have been cooler about the diagonal lines is that you’d be able to see more colors in a frame. If you love to take photos in your home, you should definitely think about your room’s aesthetic.

As many people love chalk paint for wall colour, there are many vibrant Colours, to name Henrietta, Antoinette, Barcelona Orange, Arles, English Yellow, Antibes Green, Provence, Giverny and many more! You just need a paint brush or roller, a painter’s tape and ruler for the entire process. 

Colourful Kitchens:

Rainbow kitchens are an interesting design prospect, as an abundance of counters and storage cabinets provide plenty of surface space for a touch of colour. In fact, one of the most striking ways to add colour to the room is to install a wide variety of bright cabinet doors. Whether you order cabinet doors in the colours of your choice or you take a paintbrush to the cabinets you already have, note that once again, white walls are an ideal backdrop choice. You can order various sets of bright kitchen furniture pieces and personalize your kitchen design with a creative and unique colour combination. In your rainbow kitchen, mini-blinds, cabinets and chairs in an array of colors can bring personality to a contemporary space. What keeps it from looking circus-y? A wide variety of shades, and the fact that each surface is solid rather than patterned. Even if you want, a rainbow effect can be achieved by accessories alone.

Colourful Bedrooms

Is a rainbow bedroom for adults possible? We say “yes,” but the image below says it all! How about a rainbow house, with its band of looping rainbow border paint? In the bedroom of the same space, the rainbow can be presented on a colourful canvas hanging over the bed. Green, orange and gold are other standout colours in your room. A rainbow statement wall complements modern floral bedding. Why does it all work? Yes, an abundance of white paint and fabric always counteracts the vibrancy. Another way to enrich the walls is painting rainbow wall murals that will give a new look to the homes where the entire walls can be painted in colourful murals.

We just couldn’t talk about rainbow rooms without bringing the kids into it! After all, there’s something whimsical about an abundance of colour, and what better place to show whim than in a space for children? In the shared brother and sister room, rainbow polka dots can take center stage. Sometimes adding a touch of a rainbow is as easy as buying some colourful paper! For a hanging art piece that works well in children’s and adults’ rooms alike, you can craft your own Leprechaun Rainbow Mobile. The Modern Striped Rainbow Cotton Bedding Set below is effective not only in its use of varying thin lines, but in the gradient effect that results. Contemporary and colorful!

Colourful Living Rooms with rainbow rugs

Your living room is the next space for a rainbow feast for your eyes.  A pixel wall with rotating tiles can allow you to create patterns and words, constantly evolving your style. You can keep the rest of the space white with black accents, it tastefully stands out all the more.  The colourful wooden flooring may as well be a work of art! A rainbow rug is a great way to bring colour to a space without the use of paint.  If you keep the rainbow border as a thin band and the background wall color white, there’ll be room for an abundance of vibrant accessories.

Rainbow-themed Bathroom

Rainbow-themed bathrooms are fun spaces, because their smaller size allows for a complete saturation of color. Not to mention, people are often willing to take more creative chances with bathroom spaces. You can hand-paint the tiles and then install it. Sometimes rainbow tiles can be subdued, especially for yellow and orange squares, which are to be tamed by a variety of “off shades,” such a burgundy, powder blue and forest green.

Bring on the stripes! Arrange your rainbow bathroom counter with just the pattern needed for a room featuring eggplant walls and a lime green sink! You may go for abstract swirling instead of clean stripes. Your backsplash can bring out the orange and green tones of the patterned surface, and a blue sink can make another powerful statement.

If you’re tempted to bring rainbow colours into your home, remember that a little goes a long way. At the same time, you can’t embrace this motif halfway. Whatever you decide, go all out. As you’ve read above, some rooms prefer to keep it simple with one rainbow feature in the midst of neutral surfaces, while others involve bringing as many colourful touches into the space as possible. Yet even in these rainbow-tastic spaces, some restraint is used. Add one detail at a time, and don’t be afraid to call it quits when the room has reached its colour limit. Follow these pointers, and you’re sure to find a pot of gold at the end of your design rainbow!
