Decorating wall with clocks, mirrors & photos

Decorating tips for your perfect unique wall

Is the sight of your walls more depressing than inspiring? Bare walls and stark colours as far as the eye can see? Luckily, this is a quick and easy fix! There are many beautiful ways in which you can create your own perfect unique wall with clocks, mirrors and pictures!

Who turned back time?

When you hear the word clock do you think of your grandmother’s dusty cuckoo clock? Those times are long gone. You can now choose from a huge selection of clocks in different shapes, colours and sizes. Not only will they chime the hour, but they are also very decorative. No matter if you prefer a simple clock to serve the purpose of telling time, or a splash of colour for your wall - you are sure to find it.

Is your clock a missed opportunity for decoration? Time to change that!

Different materials are especially popular. Why not pick a concrete clock with hands made of brass? Designers can make materials like marble, copper, wood and plastic into true works of art. Black and white clocks create great contrast, while replicas of models from the 50s and 60s lend a retro touch to your wall. And if you are longing for the warm atmosphere at your grandmother’s house, you can choose a cuckoo clock in a modern design. Rather than the usual wooden house, an architectural masterpiece will be home to a little bird that will delight you every hour with its chirping. Models that have a calendar function are very modern. In addition to the time, they display the year, the day of the week and the date - a great idea for that wall in your office!

Think about where and how you want to place your clock

A clock above your desk would be especially helpful alongside a magnetic memo board. If you want to be part of the typography trend, you can expand your typo-collection to a clock, which shows a typographical display instead of a dial and will literally show what time it is. There are also clocks that consist of dials without a display. These are either made of plastic or copper, and look especially elegant in streamlined, modern rooms. You wall can also serve as a projection screen for a digital time display.

Combining different clocks is a wonderful idea. Multiple clocks in a row let you see different time zones at a glance. Maybe Berlin, New York and Tokyo? You will always know what time it is in your favourite city! Our DIY tip: Make your clock unique by inserting your favourite picture as the clock face.

Mirror, Mirror on the wall

While mirrors are mostly used in bathrooms and hallways, there is no reason you can’t decorate your living room walls with one or more beautiful mirrors. There are many different types available if you want to spruce up your living room. There are wall, standing and full length mirrors which you can hang up or lean against your wall, as well as nostalgic hand mirrors. The latter look especially romantic on a wall and complement a country house or vintage style very well.

Mirrors of any size are a great decoration in your living room

A mirror’s effect is just one reason to use it as a decorative element: small rooms immediately appear bigger with the use of mirrors. Place or hang your mirror in a way that it reflects your window and you will feel your room become brighter and more spacious. You can lengthen low rooms by hanging a mirror vertically.

You can find mirrors with and without frames and there are many options available for frames. Would you prefer a subtle gold frame, or rather a magnificent Baroque model? Simple wood or adventurous-looking driftwood? Perhaps you would prefer to give your mirror a more individual touch. Our DIY tip: Any kind of mirror can be easily spiced up with wallpaper stickers, wall tattoos or glass paint. You can craft an edge or write a motivational saying on the mirror.

Pictures tell the best stories

Of course, beautiful pictures should not be missing from your wall decorations. They make your home feel like your own personal retreat and reflect your taste, your emotions and your lifestyle. Whether you want to use your own photos, or if you’d rather hang a stunning art print, a typography poster or an heirloom on your wall: with us you will find the right frame and material to put your pictures perfectly into the scene.

From Forex® to aluminium, canvas or acrylic: everything is available in our shop. If you choose to have one of your photos framed, we recommend a frame with a mat. A mat will keep your picture in the focal point and is especially preferable for subjects that are important to you. If you order your framed photo in gallery quality from us, you will not only benefit from the sharpness and colour brilliance of lab quality, but also from the high quality museum board that we use for the mat. Your photo will have even more depth and will be excellently presented. You can choose a frame that fits to your home. Once you decide, we print the image, place it under acrylic to protect it perfectly and then frame it. This means you can hang your picture as soon as it arrives in the post!

The mix makes it: combine your favourite pieces

You can try out various combinations of clocks, mirrors and pictures and create a unique decorative wall. Just get started and find your personal favourite pieces to decorate your walls! Do you like it to be more harmonious? Then choose materials, shapes and colours that match and complement each other. If you prefer strong contrasts, you can deliberately create breaks in styles and lend your room more excitement. Note, however, that sometimes less is more. A collection of many small decorative objects can be unsettling, especially in small spaces. To make your wall a real statement choose key pieces and meaningful photos!
