zzof. Clock. October 31st , 2017.
In the living room, traditional styles rule the day, but traditional styles have been taken to all new levels. With an array of natural and man made materials all types. styles from the past, present and future can be echoed with ease, and at reasonable prices. Very large clocks with roman numeral faces can make a dramatic statement over the fireplace or fill a huge undecorated space on a wall that needs breaking up. Mirrored backgrounds clocks are also popular for the living room. A tall, elegant wall clock with chimes and a pendulum is also a popular choice.
The tick. No, I`m not being silly here. Does it tick? how loud? An amazing number of people have complained to me that they had to get rid of their new clock because the tick drove them mad! Have a careful listen, and actually tip the clock onto its side, the way it will hang on the wall. It sounds trivial but the weight of the hands and mechanism can make the tick a lot more pronounced when side loaded.
We are all familiar with the indoor wall-clock as decorative and useful addition to virtual any room in our homes and offices. What we may not realize is that clocks make great outdoor decorative pieces too. The minimum requirement for a worthy clock is that it is weather proof, or at least water resistant. Water resistant clocks are better suited to dryer climates, or on a sheltered patio. If you live in a climate like the Northwestern United states, or the UK you will want to have a fully water proof weather resistant outdoor-clock. They are not hard to find.
Color. In my experience decorating, it is best to stick to traditional colors for traditional objects. Plain colors or natural tones are generally safe, or otherwise ensure that at least one color area of the clock matches one of the dominant colors in the room (i.e. white walls will blend smoothly with a white face, even if the clock surround is another color).
A wall clock will be quite striking and will catch every guest`s attention, however remember that if the room is already overloaded, this is not a good option. If you have plenty of space, a clear and simple wall clock to match the rest of the decoration can be a unique piece.
