Rain, Rain go away…come inside today!

Sydney has  been robbed of a summer – it has rained…continuously. From drizzle to downpour, the heavens have refused to close over. a few years ago our concern was the drought, now it is the floods – it is like Sydney has developed a monsoonal tendendancy.

Nevertheless, over the ‘summer’ I have slowly come to accept the rain – or rather accept it as a source of inspiration.

Heavy clouds, steel grey sky, colourful umbrella’s, drips of water running down a window …from a visual perspective rain is a beautiful thing (ofcourse, when viewing it from inside or undercover).

See below for some ways rain can be a source of inspiration within the interior…

A wonderful tropical outdoor rain shower attached to the master bath – I guess the weather man doesn’t call rain ‘showers’ for nothing!

I love this rain pendent light – creates the downward movement of the rain…

How cool is  this Cloud Silver Rain Lamp, designed by Tadao Shimizu. It is an interesting lamp which takes the shape of a cloud with rain. I love how it is so delicate  & with the soft light coming through the natural paper, it sense of feeling refreshed.

Cloud paper couch – This couch by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka uses paper to exprexx the texture of clouds through industrial material. I believe it is reminiscent of clouds in the sky and flow of water!

However…upon waking up something strange was outside my window…the sun! Better get my washing out quick….
