A timepiece is essential in most homes, whether to time how
long a dish cooks in the kitchen, to tell the time when a favorite soap starts
on tele in the lounge or when to expect the kids back home. Putting up any
boring old clock will do the job, but why not include it in the interior decor
and make it a conversation piece.
These ideas are easy and adaptable but off beat enough to give your style quotient a fillip.
