A grandfather’s watch is a statement that has been a classic for many years, and I would say centuries. You may think that it is a bit old fashioned and cannot be incorporated into modern interiors, but you are wrong! A beautiful vintage piece, whether it is a piece of furniture, a decoration or an accessory, can add a chic feel to any interior, and sometimes a contrast that it creates is the most noticeable thing in the room. Let’s take a look at how to incorporate a grandfather’s clock into your interior.
Grandfather clocks in the decor
If you have a cool grandfather clock from your grandparents or a flea market, you can use it to easily make a stylish statement. Such a piece can be incorporated into a rustic, vintage, Scandinavian, art deco, shabby chic or eclectic space. If it doesn’t match the color, just paint or redesign it and voila – a cool statement is ready! In the case of rooms, the grandfather clock can be set up in entrance areas, living rooms, dining rooms and even in kitchens and bathrooms. It all depends on what effect you want to achieve.
Converted grandfather clocks
You can repaint the clock or add a pattern to make it more eye-catching. You can use the watch for other purposes as well. For example, a living room can be complemented with a shelf from a grandfather’s clock – paint it, add brightly colored wallpaper, and possibly some drawers. If it’s a dining room, you can leave the clock and store dishes. The clock face can be replaced with a painting or mirror, or you can leave it as it is.
Modern grandfather clocks
There are bold versions of traditional grandfather clocks that make a beautiful statement anywhere. It can be a clock with an aquarium, a piece of marble with brass – such a luxurious item! A state-of-the-art piece of smoked glass and an electronic dial clock will blow your mind!
