When our children are born – or more accurately, just prior to them being born – we spend a whole lot of time planning the design of their rooms. We plan everything down to the smallest detail in coordinating crib bedding, artwork, paint, and so forth. And the end result is a room that is a perfect in every way. As kids grow, however, their needs change – and sooner or later (more sooner than later) they begin to have very clear cut ideas on what they want their room to look like.
At this point, it may become time to embark upon a complete design renovation – turning what is more kid friendly into something that is more suitable for young adults. This is actually a perfect project to do along with kids as they choose the colors that they want, the fabrics, the furniture – and really infuse their personality and choices into what will eventually define their room.
There are many ways to bring a room to life and the use of color is certainly one of them. But beyond the color and the furniture there are accessories that can help transform a room – including clocks.
Clocks are so powerful because they carry so much design weight in such a small package. They can be everything from traditional to vibrant, classic to funky – and still they can moved from place to place in order to maximize their benefits. Everything from mantel clocks to wall clocks can be placed in a young person’s room – giving them a way to tell time (other than that computer and cell phone) and really elevating the décor of their bedroom to something that is far more grown up and sophisticated.
