In the world of interior decorating, it is commonly held that the best way to make a bold statement is with an understated overall look punctuated by bold or dramatic pieces. This means that if you want a drastic paint color, that should be the focal point of the room. Make sure the accessories complement but don’t overshadow that paint job.
Or, if you’re going to go with a more neutrally based color palette, make sure that you have some pieces that can serve as conversation starters. This can be a particularly ornate hand made grandfather clocks, or it can be a dark mahogany polished buffet. Whatever the dramatic piece, don’t go overboard with the look. Choose that one bold item and build the look of the room around it.
While telling time is certainly the primary function of a clock, this is not their sole purpose. They are also used as decorative items anywhere in your house. When clocks are purchased for the dual purposes of style and functionality, they tend to have classic designs, such as hand made cuckoo clocks.
Handmade clocks are generally crafted with painstaking detail and have intricate details. They are suited to your every need and taste. You can put these clocks in the dining room, kitchen, living room or even your bedroom. The clock you choose can say a lot about your personal style, so choose wisely.
