Just because clocks are functional doesn't mean there aren't cool ideas for decorating with them, and the diversity of clock design ensures that they can fit into any decor. Whether your home is a rustic lodge or a modern loft, you can find a way to incorporate clocks into its design.
Who says clocks have to be relegated to the bedside table? Make a clock the focal point of your office, kitchen or entryway. The key to pulling this look off is finding a well-designed, visually interesting wall clock and basing the rest of the room's design around it. For example, you can highlight an antique clock in your entryway by placing it above a hallway table and framing it with various other accessories, such as a table lamp, flower arrangement or vintage photos.
If you have a cherished collection of clocks, you should hang them together as a single grouping rather than spacing them around the entire house. Part of the beauty of any collection is the sheer number of pieces it includes. If you want your clocks to make a statement, group your collection together in the kitchen or above the living room couch to create a unique and high-impact piece of art.
One of the best ways to dress up a boring bookshelf is by incorporating interesting accessories, such as clocks. Use larger, heavier pieces as bookends. To accommodate smaller or daintier clocks, stack several books on their sides and place the clocks on top. This will ensure that even the tiniest timepieces can be seen.
Keep up with friends around the world by turning several clocks into a stylish and functional piece of wall art. Purchase three or more identical clocks; set one to your home time zone and the others to time zones around the world where friends live. Hang them on the wall and create a label to correspond to each clock. The label can list the name of the city, the name of your loved one who lives there or both. This simple decorating idea will not only enhance your space but also your friendships.
