Oh so moody.

Cloud decor for moody people

Moody people need moody decor

Cloud decor is always the right choice for moody people, because clouds are endlessly mercurial, as are we.

Clouds are ever present in our meandering walks and our elusive dreams.

Clouds merit a place in our homes.

How to get clouds

Paint or wallpaper. Paintings or photographs. Lighting or mobiles. All work.

Where to put clouds

Clouds on ceilings

Ceilings. An obvious place for clouds, but an effective place.

Clouds on walls

A horizon, a sky, a frozen moment of churning gray clouds. A beautiful counterpoint to an elegant, white, and pristine dining space.

Clouds in vignettes

Here, the ethereal clouds, so faintly painted on the wall, couch the vignette in context. Suddenly, the lamp is a building in a magnificent skyscape.

Clouds as lighting

To walk into a room, and see this unexpected cloud light, would shock viewers in the most delightful fashion. Heart-stopping beauty lives here.

The light is also a speaker. Smart.

Clouds in mobiles

Clouds are not just for children’s rooms. Clouds belong everywhere. Same for mobiles.

A mobile transcends decorated surfaces and makes the magic three dimensional.

My ultimate indoor cloud choice

Cloud decor explodes onto Nuvolette wallpaper.
Nuvolette wall paper is unspeakably tasteful and available for purchase at decoratorsbest.com.

Moody, neutral, and painterly. Walls or ceilings. Eternally perfect.

Here is the Nuvolette wallpaper in action:
