You can't really celebrate color without celebrating that iconic representation of the multiplicity of colors, the rainbow. But while the traditional ROYGBIV rainbow reminds me of unicorns and the 80s, taking a slightly different angle on the rainbow results in some great modern decor — for kids and grown-ups alike.
Instead of following the exact pattern of the scientific rainbow, these decor items mix up order, or proportion, or tones while still maintaining the essence of a rainbow. Each of these products is colorful, playful and modern.
