Design Motif Spotlight: Clouds

Today we’re celebrating the power of clouds! Outside they just might bring rain, but indoors, they’re a much needed dose of whimsy and style for your interior. In fact, clouds are one of the top design motifs for children’s bedrooms, including nurseries. Yet clouds are also fun for grown-up spaces, and they represent a variety of styles, from the retro to the Scandinavian. Check out some of the latest cloud decor finds as you browse the images below…

Clouds for Floors and Walls

Deck the walls, deck the floor. Cloud-themed rugs and wall decor can set the stage for a space that doesn’t take itself too seriously. How can you not smile when you see this Rain and Shine Rug from The Land of Nod? Designed by artist Colin Walsh, the rug is available in two sizes.

A soft yet striking addition to a child’s bedroom, this Cloud Wallpaper from ferm LIVING is printed on WallSmart wallpaper, which consists of non-woven fleece. WallSmart wallpaper makes the process of covering your walls easier and faster, especially when you use the ready-mixed wallpaper paste. Below we see the cloud pattern (designed by Ingela P Arrhenius) in mint and white, but you can also purchase it in rose and white.

If you’d like to cover your wall in clouds but you’re not up for a wallpapering job, consider this retro-meets-modern Clouds Tapestry from Urban Outfitters. Created by Debbie Carlos, this cotton piece can also double as a beach or picnic blanket. The design evokes the dreamy magic of ’70s and ’80s cloud motifs, don’t you think?!

Cloud-Motif Bedding

We now shift our focus from that which surrounds us to that which we sleep on! The Cloud Bedding below from ferm LIVING is shown in rose, but it’s also available in mint. The set includes a duvet cover and a pillowcase, and the fact that the bedding is 100% organic cotton makes it perfect for a child’s room. Another reason it works for little ones: the whimsical pattern. As with the wallpaper in the previous section, this bedding features an illustration by Ingela P Arrhenius.
