The search is over! I’ve finally found a large wall clock with WOW factor!
Ever since we finished our extension two years ago, we’ve been looking for a large wall clock to hang above the folding doors that lead from the lounge into the extension living/dining area. The blank space was crying out for a gorgeous oversize clock.
I trawled Pinterest, Google, high street stores, online stores and visited HomeSense most weeks in search of the perfect wall clock.
In an earlier post, I told you about my quest for the perfect large wall clock and listed some of my top picks: Searching for a wall clock with ‘WOW’ factor: My Top 5 picks. Although the clocks in my top 5 were lovely, they weren’t quite what I was looking for, so I continued my search.
I’ve finally found the perfect large wall clock!
Last week I popped into HomeSense for a quick look around. It’s a regular stop-off when I have a few minutes to spare on my way to my voluntary debt advice job. As usual, I wandered over to the clocks, in the hope I’d find the perfect wall clock. Over the past few years, I’ve sent mobile phone pictures of suitable contenders to Mr T, usually agreeing they weren’t quite right. However, this time I spotted a clock that stopped me in my tracks. A large yellow wall clock by the English Electric Clock Company.
It took me by surprise because it wasn’t the clock I’d imagined in my head. The surround was yellow, rather than the polished chrome or black I’d envisioned. It had a more ‘industrial’ feel than the modern or contemporary style I’d had in mind. Furthermore, instead of a pure white clock face, it had a slightly mottled, aged appearance. At 50cm diameter, it was smaller than the one I’d imagined, too.
Nevertheless, despite it being different to the large wall clock of my imagination, I loved it. It was bold. It was colourful. Even better, it was only £29.99, an absolute bargain for a gloriously sturdy, metal clock of such generous proportions.
I hastily pinged a picture of the clock to Mr T, hoping he’d like it too. He did like it! However, being a cautious chap, he wanted to see it in ‘real life’ just to be sure the yellow matched the colour of the scatter cushions in the extension. I bought the clock, kept the receipt, and brought it home.
I’m delighted to report the yellow surround of the clock does indeed match our cushions. Whoop!
Mr T loves it.
I love it.
