12 Rainbow Home Decor Ideas

The Best Rainbow Home Decor & Craft Ideas

I’ve rounded up 12 of my favourite rainbow home decor ideas for brightening up your home. I love to decorate my home with splashes of colour and you can’t get a brighter more colourful splash than a rainbow.

When I see a rainbow, whether it’s a real one or one in the home, I can’t help but smile. I’ve even added a bit of rainbow home decor to my own home. I re-arranged the books on our bookshelves into a rainbow based on the colour of each books spine. It immediately brightened up the room and makes everyone who notices it smile. My husband had to admit it looked good even though it’s not how he’d usually sort the books.

Do you want to add a splash of colour to your home.  Here is a roundup of some great rainbow home decor ideas

The Rainbow Home Decor Ideas

1. Rainbow Chairs – Inmyownstyle
Instead of having your dining room chairs all the same, why not spray paint each one a different colour to make your own rainbow home decor.

2. Rainbow Stairs – Planete-Deco
You could always go for a dramatic rainbow in the hallway by painting a rainbow stairway. I’m in the process of revamping my own stairs and I am tempted to do this.

3. Rainbow Books – Bookymary
This must be one of the easiest ways to add a rainbow, not a spray paint in site. The books in my living room look very much like this, I think we even have the same Billy bookcase.

  6. So many great rainbow ideas! I love the chairs, clock, and shelves! Thanks for sharing at Submarine Sunday!

  7. Ooooh these are great! I love a bit of colour around the house! There are a couple here I think I can try. What kind of spray paint did you use on the lamp shade, is it a special kind for fabric?

    • Claire Armstrong

      Thanks ! i used Montana gold acrylic spay paints and it was just a normal lamp shade.

  8. Those rainbow stairs rock! Not that I’d do it, but what a bright addition to the house!

    • Claire Armstrong

      Thanks ! Yes the stairs do look amazing but you’d have to be brave to do it yourself.

  9. These are all so great, it’s almost hard to find a favorite! Makes you instantly happy! Visiting from Happiness Is Homemade party.

      Thank you ! There’s nothing like a bit of colour to bring some cheeriness to the room.

  10. Love the rainbow books! I have color coded my DVD’s and music CD before as well as the clothes hanging in my closet. My craft room has all the paper, brads, buttons and doodads color coded too.
