Decor spotlight: Clocks

By: Cindy Jacobelli

Nowadays, those who wear a watch are rare and more often than not, asking someone for the time, results in a frantic search for their phone. Although traditional timepieces may seem a thing of the past, they’re not. In a home, they’re immensely useful gadgets and vary so much in style, that there are lots of options available to match your design sense. No matter what room you’re decorating, consider dressing it up with a timepiece. Whether it's a traditional grandfather clock or something ultra-modern, they offer as much form as function to your chic living space.

Big and bold
There’s no missing this clock. It makes a statement on any blank wall. But more than that, it’s an elegant substitution for framed prints and photographs.  Ikea, $49.99. accessories-clocks-industrial.jpg
Traditional timing
If you lean towards a more old-world sense of style, then this timepiece may appeal to you. The black and gold oversized face blends nicely in a more traditional room filled with antiques and collectibles. Horchow, $435 - $485. accessories-clock-green.jpg
Contemporary classic
This clock makes an immediate impression despite its simplicity. The chartreuse colour is arresting but not overwhelming. The modern font makes for clean numbers that are easily read. And the aluminium hands give it an edge. Uncommon on Etsy, $68.11. accessories-clocks-octogon.jpg
Striking face
This clock’s strong lines and industrial chic look may be vintage-inspired, but they’re perfect for modern loft spaces that are bright and airy. Restoration Hardware, $379. accessories-clocks-grandfather.jpg
Not your grandfather's clock
This sleek number offers a modern take on the grandfather clock (perfect for an industrial chic look) … and takes up a lot less room. The contemporary glass and metal design married with a traditional pendulum gives you the best of all worlds. Crate and Barrel, $178.30. accessories-clocks-550.jpg
Works like a charm
Forgo today’s digital alarm clocks in favour of this pendant clock. It blends rather than stands out, and adds a little luxe to your dream home. Pottery Barn, $65.89.
