There are those of us who are lucky enough to own a home and then those of us who are lucky enough to own a home in which we reside and a home in which we vacation. A vacation home is very similar to our primary residence in that it should reflect those things that are most important to us; and we make sure that we are able to communicate this through our décor. Just as we put significant effort into decorating our homes, so do we put equal effort into decorating our vacation homes. This is the space where we can truly let our imaginations run wild and where our greatest design desires can be played out on a blank canvas.
Grandfather clocks – while thought of as more traditional elements used in classic homes – can be a wonderful addition to a vacation home. With the use of grandfather clocks in hallways, entranceways, dining rooms, family rooms, and even in enclosed outdoor rooms, a vacation home goes from being a transient, temporary space to a home that has the lived in, much loved feel of a primary residence.
When looking for the perfect accessories for a vacation home, consider the purchase of a grandfather clock that reflects the design you have set forth for this special retreat. Not all grandfather clocks must have traditional designs. Today’s clock manufacturers create a variety of grandfather clocks in more contemporary – and even unusual – styles; perfect for the vacation home.
