Time For Clocks
My mom and I visited Sundance today and were given miniature vintage clocks with our purchases. They were so small, so simple, and integrated so well with the look of Sundance's home decorating merchandise. I started thinking about clocks. Often annoying when not done right, clocks can be a useful and creative addition to a space. I need to get a beautiful and funky classy vintage individual clock for my kitchen. I need to. I should soon. Time is ticking.
Clocks like this become a piece of art to contribute to the room. William Morris said that an item should be either useful or beautiful. A clock like this can easily be both.
Collections of small clocks not only keep time but also provide a non-cluttered and useful collection. Keep the clocks on the same time or put them on different times around the world with a note or card attractively attached to designate the city. Make the clocks different but suggest a collection by keeping an element the same between them: the face color, the size, the shape, the frame material, etc.
Another collection with organized descending size. Creative. Unusual. Streamlined.
Low and small, this clock integrates into the many elements of this beautiful kitchen area.
Placed in a high-trafficked area visible from many areas of the house, yet slim and discreet, this is a sleeker take on a grandfather hall clock.
I love how this clock isn't traditionally hung, but melds well with the shelved materials in this fantastically minimalist and functional kitchen.
A classic warm wooden touch to this streamlined kitchen.
Placed on the wall, yes, but placed low and in matching material for a great continuity. I love the cream and chrome.
A fun cuckoo goes well with the individuality of this room. Look for clocks to add character not just the time.
A wonderful touch of elegance to this beautiful room. The clock provides the opportunity to draw together the dark accents.
Simple. Basic. Classy.
Unusual square shape--a modern take on a classic shape. Love how exactly it fits into the bookshelf.
Discreet, especially when hung with another piece of art.
Hanging a clock high and isolated showcases it and can be beautiful with an especially unusual clock.
Countertop clock. Pottery Barn has always had a classic round option in several finishes.
Even clocks love a breath of fresh air, for a fresh (and convenient) look.
