I love nothing more than a storm with raging thunder and flashes of lightening brightening up a dark sky. So, I was in my element when last week raging thunder storms swept across the UK!
However, if like me, you are always a little disappointed that they never seem to last long enough, you could always try bringing a little of the storm into your own home with this quirky little interactive light by designer, Richard Clarkson
The aptly named, ‘Cloud’, is a funky lamp that not only looks like a real life thunder cloud, but also doubles up as speaker system to mimic the sounds of a stormy night. The sound system also allows you to stream music and will flash in time to the beat – a sure way to impress guests!

However, you’ll need a suitable moody interior to house your mini thunderstorm!
Using a dark blue will help to create a natural atmosphere which is fashionably dramatic while at the same time remaining relaxed. If you have a small box bedroom or snug area, painting the walls and ceilings in a deep blue tone will transform a small boring room into a intimate space that conjure images of raging waves lashing against cliff tops.
Alternatively, you could try using a dark grey colour on your walls will also help to create a truly stormy interior.
Grey has always been a popular colour as you can accessorie with virtually any colour – why not try adding a few splashes of bright yellow into the mix like this cheerful cushion from Redbubble?
