In the last post we talked about how all of us at one time or another have been struck by the monotony of our home design – especially if we have lived in the home for an extended period of time; and how every so often it becomes necessary to make some changes to update and liven up the rooms in a home.
As also previously discussed it is not necessary to break the bank in order to transform a home. Often just the changing of a color on the walls or the substitution of one accessory for another can make all the difference in the world. To that end, we talked about how smaller accessories – those that are inexpensive but carry a significant decorative punch – can give a room new life and enliven décor that had been seeming out of date and stale. In this role as transformative accessories, clocks have long been able to add a touch of uniqueness to a room without breaking a budget.
Some of the ways in which we can add clocks to a room and help further a design goal without going financially overboard, include:
* Using a mantel clock in a variety of creative ways. Forget the mantel. Try a mantel clock on a desk, a table, even a countertop and see how easy it is to add a touch of sophistication or whimsy to a room.
* Perch an atomic clock in areas of the room that are lacking color or design depth. There are a variety of atomic clocks on the market that are fun and fresh or classic and traditional.
* Wall clocks are great no matter what room you hang them. Don’t be led to believe that wall clocks have to be traditional pieces that hang in a living room; they come in a variety of styles (as many modern as traditional) and are at home no matter where you put them.
