Is the sight of your walls more depressing than inspiring? Bare walls and stark colours as far as the eye can see? Luckily for you, there's a quick and easy fix! There are many beautiful ways to 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, they’re also very attractive. Whether you’re looking for a simple clock to tell the time or you want a splash of colour for your wall, you’re sure to find it.

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

Combinations of 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 of your grandmother’s house, you can choose a cuckoo clock in a modern design. Rather than the usual wooden house, these days you can find a little architectural masterpiece that’s home to a little bird which will delight you every hour with its chirping. There are modern models that have a calendar display. In addition to the time, they show 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 can be especially helpful alongside a magnetic memo board. If you want to be part of the typography trend, there are clocks available which show a typographical display instead of a dial and will tell you the time in words. There are also clocks that consist of hands without a dial. These are either made of plastic or copper, and look especially elegant in streamlined, modern rooms. Your 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'll 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's 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 mirrors which you can hang up or lean against your wall, as well as traditional 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 reflective quality can itself have a decorative effect: small rooms immediately appear bigger with the use of mirrors. Place or hang your mirror in such a way that it reflects your window and you‘ll notice your room feels brighter and more spacious. You can lengthen low rooms by hanging a long 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 a magnificent Baroque model? Simple wood or adventurous-looking driftwood? Perhaps you'd prefer to give your mirror a more individual touch. Our DIY tip: any kind of mirror can easily be spiced up with wallpaper stickers, wall tattoos or glass paint. You can craft a border or write a motivational quote 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 you’d rather hang a stunning art print, a typography poster or an heirloom on your wall, at My-Picture.co.uk you’ll find the right frame and material to display your pictures to best effect.

Your house will only become a home with pictures - and the best ones are yours

From photo board to aluminium, canvas and acrylic, everything is available at our shop. If you choose to have one of your photos framed, we recommend a frame with a mount. A mount will focus attention on your picture and is especially suitable for subjects that are important to you. If you order your framed photo from My-Picture.co.uk, you’ll benefit not only from lab-quality sharpness and colour brilliance, but also from the gallery-quality card-stock that we use for the mount. Your photo will take on even more depth and will be presented for maximum impact. You can choose a frame that suits your home. Once you’ve chosen, we print your image, place it under acrylic to protect it, 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 soon you'll find your personal favourites for wall decoration! Do you prefer your decor 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 flavour. 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!
