Create the Ultimate Rainbow Themed Kids Room

“Sooomewheeere, over the rainbow…” is the room your little one has been dreaming of!

While some kids might have a favourite colour they want for their bedroom (and their clothes, toys, and everything else!), other children might struggle to pick just one. Why not design them a bright and bold room using all the colours of the rainbow!

Colours can influence how kids relate to the world. Colour psychology means that each shade of the rainbow may provoke certain feelings in your child. Yellow, for example, is the colour of happiness, while blue and purple are calming. Red is stimulating and orange is said to provoke critical thinking. A rainbow-themed room can do it all!

So, whether you want to go all out and paint a rainbow mural on their wall, or simply add a few colourful accessories, here’s how to create a room they’ll be ‘over the rainbow’ with!
