A grandfather clock is a statement that has been a classic for many years, and I would say centuries. You may think that it’s a bit dated and can’t be integrated into modern interiors, but you’re wrong! A beautiful vintage piece, whether it’s a piece of furniture, a decoration or an accessory, can add a chic feel to any interior and sometimes a contrast it creates is the most striking thing in the room. Let’s take a look at how you can incorporate a grandfather’s clock into your interior.
Grandfather clocks in decor
If you got a cool grandfather clock from your grandparents or a flea market, this is an easy way to 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 done! For rooms, the grandfather clock can be placed 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 also use the watch for other purposes. For example, a living room can be complemented with a shelf made from a grandfather’s clock – paint it, add colorful wallpaper and maybe some drawers. If it is a dining room, you can leave the clock and store dishes. The dial can be replaced with a painting or a mirror, or you can leave it as 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 watch will blow your mind!
