zzof. Clock. October 31st , 2017.
The first antique wall clocks were called lanterns. They were made out of brass, very heavy and were hung on walls. The concept of personal clocks was introduced in the 17th century.
Another type of clock that can be a bit more discreet is the wooden wall clock. This type of clock is ideal for any room that is decorated around natural materials. Within wooden clocks, there are several types of different kinds of woods, colors, shapes and textures. It all depends on your preferences and budget to go for one or the other. But, please, avoid buying imitation wood. A clock attracts plenty of attention, and you don`t want your visitors looking at a piece of plastic, do you? You are left to choose the one you like, and combine it with the rest of the decoration at home.
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).
These outdoor clocks are an interesting and unique gift for the outdoorsmen and people who are active outdoors. They are useful when placed out in your work shed, your patio, or your garage. A nautical design is useful and ads a nice decorative touch to any boat. If you know someone who owns a boat a nautical wall-clocks makes an awesome gift. Don`t forget about poolside wall-clocks. A nice back lit weather proof clock can really add a decorative accent to your backyard pool. The possibilities for these large weather proof time pieces are endless.
How to Choose a Wall Clock. When people go shopping to choose a clock for their home, most people immediately think about functionality, and another additional factor at the time of purchase, which is the price. However, that is mostly a wrong approach regarding wall clocks. Wall clocks are more a piece of decoration than a useful clock, especially antique ones.
