Decorating Ideas: Large Clocks
Let’s talk about Clocks! I am OBSESSED with large clocks and couldn’t WAIT to share this blog post with you.
And while every home suits a small clock here and there, not every home suits a large clock, which can look out of place and awkward if not hung in the right spot.
Large Clock Decor Idea #1
The Piece de Resistance or Focal Point
When my E-design client was looking for the perfect paint colour for her dining room, it was Agreeable Gray that set the perfect tone for this GORGEOUS large clock display!

I love the rustic wood backdrop of that clock and how it picks up on the stain of the buffet top.
Large Clock Decor Idea #2
Complement a Focal Point
So you already have a fireplace or something else equally as exciting? Well, guaranteed there is a clock out there that will not compete with your focal point, but rather it will complement it…

If you picture the space without the clock, you’ll see a focal point that is at half of its potential. The soft contrast of the clock colour sits perfectly on the rustic wood and picks up on the lighter tones in the furnishings without being ‘punchy’.
This fireplace looks GORGEOUS with the low contrast, but striking clock…
This covers a whole range of walls including entryways, bare walls, bedroom walls and more!
The dining room. A large clock in a dining room is a nice alternative to a traditional buffet and hutch.

In the bedroom: If your headboard is low enough, consider a large clock as a way to keep track of quality ‘time’ in the bedroom!
The entryway: With a console or sofa style table, an oversized clock can be a great way to add style to an entryway. Check out this gorgeous farmhouse country entryway!
Going Commando: You can also hang a clock on a wall with nothing around it. A wall like this can’t be too long otherwise even a large clock will look out of place (because let’s face it, most large clocks need a little support…)
