If "rainbow" brings to mind loud tie-dyed shirts of the 70's or gaudy cartoon characters of the 80's, you might want to rethink those associations. Check out this sophisticated take on a rainbow (almost an ombre effect) in a little girl's room.

This bedroom is part of a fabulous "Sneak Peek" feature of Joy Thigpen's home at Design*Sponge and we hope you'll check out the rest (including another unique wall treatment in her son's room). Although this would be a time-consuming project, Joy reports that it wasn't costly as she was able to use inexpensive paint samples. Just lovely.
