Stormy Styles: An Indoor Thunderstorm

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

‘Cloud’ by Richard Clarkson for $3,360

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.

Cocoon yourself inside by painting the walls, ceiling and woodwork of a small room in moody blue tones.

Alternatively, you could try using a dark grey colour on your walls will also help to create a truly stormy interior.

A deep charcoal grey will help to create a thunderous space to relax in.

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?

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
