Rainbow Decor to Deck out Your Pride Bash With Style
"Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links."
With Pride coming up (it’s the whole month of June!), we’re swapping all of our neutral, quiet pieces for rainbow home decor. Hear us out: We are big supporters of all things Pride all 12 months of the year, but we like to go big in June, so we spent quite a bit of time hunting around the Internet for the most colorful blankets, magazine organizers, towels, and more to make our homes a place of, well, love.
There’s no need to redo your entire space, but if you want to get in the spirit, consider accenting a few rooms that could use a little bit of spice with some of our finds ahead. From a mirrored wall installation to a cheeky decorative vase, there are a lot of options to consider. The best part? We stayed away from the kitschy stuff that could skew tacky or juvenile, so rest assured, your home won’t lose any of its sophistication in the process of its Pride makeover. Think of it as a little refresh that you’ll be trying on for a month. After all, everyone loves a rainbow, right? Ahead, we’re sharing 18 rainbow-centric finds that will surely spruce up your space, so now isn’t the time to hold back and prioritize neutrals. Go big, people!
Plus, with Memorial Day mere days away, quite a few of our picks are on sale. One of our favorites? A Jonathan Adler catch-all tray that’s 20 percent off for only a few more days. So go ahead, and snag a few pieces of rainbow decor you’ll want to leave up all year long.
Rainbow LED Light
It's our personal opinion that everyone loves a neon sign—especially a small one that fits perfectly on a desk or nightstand. This one is also not so bright that you'll be nearly blinded by it if you gaze its way. If you're looking for a good gift, we think you've found it.
Rainbow Towels, Set of 6
There are a lot of rainbow-printed towels out there, but we are partial to this set because the rainbow isn't so in-your-face. It's more about a broad spectrum of colors than it is an actual rainbow, which makes this set feel more every day than a special occasion. Also, these towels are as much about the pattern as they are the comfort. They're plush, soft, and absorbent.
Pride Rainbow Wreath
We love a wreath and will use pretty much any occasion—Christmas, Easter, summer—to hang one on our front doors. So with Pride month coming up, you can bet we'll be snagging this beautiful Williams Sonoma wreath that's made of naturally air-dried integrifolia leaves.
Absida Rainbow Premium Rug
An area rug is the perfect opportunity to add a bit of personality to your space without having to do too much. So if you're looking to add a rainbow to your space, you can't go wrong with this rug. It feels a bit more grownup than what you may expect from a rainbow rug. Plus, all Ruggable rugs are machine washable, so if you're worried about the white background, don't be!
If you want to go a bit bolder and brighter with your rainbow decor, keep the pieces small. This vase offers a perfect example of how to decorate with rainbows: It's sophisticated, fun, and cheeky in all the right ways.
Abstract Multicolor Blob Wall Art
We know we just advised against decorating with large-scale rainbow pieces, but we'll make an exception for this cool wall art. It comprises mirrored blobs, if you will, which makes it feel a bit less kitschy than it would if it were in the shape of a traditional rainbow. We'd suggest hanging this piece in a room with mostly neutral or quiet-toned furniture.
Rainbow Snow Globe
We have a weakness for snow globes. There's something sweetly nostalgic about them that really does warm out hearts—no matter how cliche they may be. This one also feels season-less, so there's no need to put it away after Christmas.
Rainbow Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper
This kind of wallpaper works best in a nursery or child's room, so order a few rolls of this peel-and-stick pattern and behold as your kid's room completely changes. "I have this paper in another pattern," Associate Shopping Editor Jessica Cherner says. "and I can attest that it is really easy to apply and lasts for at least a few years."
Stainless Steel Slotted Turner
Home chefs, this one is for you. It may not be the slotted turner you break out for your fanciest dishes, but if you want to spice up your kitchen essentials collection, we can't recommend this one enough. We can promise you'll get compliments as soon as your guests see it.
Dripping Rainbow Trinket Tray
If there is one creative who knows how to have fun with design, it's Jonathan Adler. Just look at these rainbow catch-all trays! They may seem a bit expensive, but you can score 25% off using the code "HELLOSUMMER" at checkout.
Colorful Coasters, Set of 4
Technically, these cute coasters aren't rainbow patterned, but each one is a different color of the rainbow, so we think this set counts. Break them out at your summer parties and just wait for the compliments to start pouring in.
Albers Checkerboard Throw Blanket
Similar to the Anthropologie towels earlier on our list, this oversized throw blanket works for all months of the year, not just Pride. Plus, Verloop is a sustainably minded brand, so there's no guilt draping this super cozy throw across the back of your couch.
Art Deco Magazine Organizer
Like the vase we mentioned earlier, this Homary magazine organizer (which you can use for anything) works because it's small, so it doesn't feel juvenile. Plus, there's no reason you can't have a little fun in your home office, right?
Rainbow Lumbar Pillow
This may look like a typical lumbar pillow you'd place in the front of your bed or across your sofa, but it's actually a full body pillow filled with memory foam. As for the rainbow cover, it's 100% microfiber, so it's not nearly as itchy as it may look.
Rainbow Chevron Quilt
This chevron-patterned quilt may be from Pottery Barn Teen, but there's something very sophisticated about it. You can use it any room—even the aduts's. If you want to keep it feeling a bit more grown-up, though, maybe skip the matching shams.
Taya Storage Basket
Available in three sizes, this hand-woven storage basket is great for anyone without a lot of closet space. Whether you use it for your kids's toys, your dirty clothes, or anything in between, you'll surely become just as obsessed with this unique find as we are. Did we mention that it's crafted by Senegalese artists using elephant grass and recycled plastic?
Aloha Outdoor Doormat
Your front door is the first thing people see when they approach your home, so making sure they're greeted with style is paramount. Enter this rainbow doormat from AllModern. Your guests will definitely feel welcome here.
Boho Sun Shower Curtain
Like an area rug, a shower curtain is perhaps the easiest way to add color (and a little bit of fun) to your space without having to spend more than a few dollars. There's no need to paint your walls or retile your floors. Just swap your current shower curtain for one that's a bit, well, louder.
