Over the Rainbow

Over the Rainbow

As the rainbow trend marches on we came to wonder what it is about these riots of colour that are loved by so many?

Rainbows have always held a special significance for some and recent times have meant that they have become a little ray of light for more people than ever.
So... now that restrictions are lifting and we begin to adjust to our new normal are we 'over the rainbow'?

Here at Bear & Bloom we say NEVER! 

For one thing rainbows are actually extremely forgiving in terms of kids' interiors. 
All too often parents take time to carefully decide on a colour palette for their little ones.  interiors that they feel suits their overall interior style, only to find that once they have redecorated the reality is that children tend to own so much multicoloured paraphernalia  that the carefully planned palette is totally lost.

We believe that rainbows are for life and not just for lockdown and so we've curated a list of our favourite rainbow inspired finds from small businesses to bring a touch of magic to your life.

For your little ones

Not only is it totally gorgeous, it's tiles are extremely versatile, easy to clean and made with no toxic nasties. It's super squishy foam is 
1.4cm thick, and so it's perfect to protect from bumps, wear and tear and not forgetting tired, achy parent knees!
This one isn't strictly rainbow but as it is available in such a glorious array of mouthwatering sorbet shades we simply couldn't resist including it! 


“When I first saw these huge Nobodinoz floor cushions from Pop and Punch I actually wanted one for myself! In the end it was actually my son that I got one for and he absolutely loves snuggling up in it for story time, watching films or for sprawling on whilst he plays dinosaurs or does puzzles. It is also fortunately very easy to clean with its removable cover - an absolute must for a pet owner like me"!

This beautiful dusty pink rainbow bed linen is a perfect way to add a nod to the rainbow trend without introducing a full spectrum of colour. It was designed exclusively for Little Jagger by the amazing Ingrid Petrie. This modern rainbow design is handmade from 100% cotton and is also completely reversible featuring a star design on the back.


These organic cotton, sensory puzzle blocks make a great gift for babies and toddlers as not only do they look lovely on a nursery shelf they are designed to help encourage their cognitive development. They are also machine washable which means that you don't have to worry about them being ruined by baby gums and sticky fingers.
