Decorating with clocks!

I have always love clocks. The bigger, the better. Using clocks as decor are very popular among designers and design enthusiasts because they are so dramatic and charming. Whether it is an oversized clock or a grouping of smaller clocks, they create great focal points. They also make a huge design statement especially when they are used in a living room above the fireplace mantel, on an empty wall above the sofa, above a console table in an entryway, above the bed, etc. Clocks are very versatile because they can be incorporated in many decor styles such as traditional, eclectic, country, transitional, etc. Let's check out these gorgeous clocks below for some inspirations!












Do you use any clocks as decor? Which one do you find inspirational?

  10. Beautiful post Jessie! I was just moaning about how uninspired I felt and you have just inspired me! I love the clock in the first picture the most (only problem is that the guy hates the ticking noise of clocks so we have to take the batteries out of them and just use them for decoration!)

  12. Ok, no 2! It has my name on it!

    I used to import lovely Swedish antiques but I have yet to invest in an old Swedish (simple gray) floor clock. I have always wanted one!

    Happy new week to you!

    Warm hugs,

  15. Gosh, I think the first one is quite an amazing piece. I think just one clock would do me just fine.. living in a society where our lives are ruled by time, always on the clock, I would not be able to live with an entire wall of them (even as fun decorative items). Great post!

  17. What fun this post is Jessie! And while it isn't a clock, I am rather smitten with that colourful credenza below the giant clock...so many wonderfully coloured drawers, and I bet it tells a fabulous history story too. Virginia x

  19. These are so pretty, Jessie! I went in the opposite direction and just bought an adorable old bakelite plug in clock for my guest bedroom. I just love it! I also have a vintage cuckoo clock I want to paint white!
