Timepieces are 'instrumental in decor' as well as fashion

First published: 05-01-2010

Watch lovers may not want to limit timepieces to just their wrists, with a new outlook on interior design emphasising just how important it is for individuals to embrace them elsewhere in the home.

One interior design expert asserts that they should never be overlooked by people aiming to give their home that added edge; Elaine Markoutsas has emphasised how clocks can be great accessories or even better focal points of a room, especially those which are oversized.

Ty Pennington, the host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, speaks highly of timepieces in the home and said: "They're the ultimate in functional room decor."

"Coordinating design and function is very important when creating home furnishings. I love clocks."

Another great investment which homeowners may want to make as a means of getting a return in later years is a limited edition watch, with George Somlo - an expert in watches - recommending to GQ readers that if they buy one, they should make sure they keep both the box and paperwork it comes with.
