Step aside sunset lamps; there’s a new sheriff in town. If you’ve scrolled through TikTok recently, you’ve probably seen a rainbow lamp or two pop up in a creator’s home studio, bedroom or living room. Similarly to the deep-orange hued sunset lamp, the rainbow light projector lamp casts a brilliant, exuberant array of colours ranging from dazzling violets to powerful blues.
They do give off an early-00s-Disney-movie-set-in-space vibe — which is the kind of escapism and nostalgia we’re all clinging to for a little bit of hope right now (sorry to be cynical). While the sunset lamp is perfect for making every hour feel like golden hour, the rainbow lamp (with a tiny bit of imagination) could make every mundane household task feel like a celestial adventure. Sounds fun, right?
If you’ve already become accustomed to a galaxy projector or are yet to take the plunge into quirky lighting, a rainbow lamp could be the switch-up you’ve needed to brighten up your space even further.
