I’m kicking off with one of my favourites, the Karlsson Minimal Flip Clock. It’s been on my wish list for my office space for like forever! Perfect for those of you that love a minimalistic look with its stripped back caseless design. It’d look great for keeping check of time in the home office or kitchen. I’d probably be staring at this rather than getting work done waiting for the flip motion but I think you’ll agree it would be a nice distraction. It can be wall mounted or free stand on your favourite shelf. It’s currently on sale at the time of writing £89 (£100 original price).

Although the description stipulates copper on Wilko’s website this classic clock alludes to being more rose gold and the online reviews back this up.  It’s also an absolute BARGAIN at £6 so you have no excuse for running late.

Diamantini & Domeniconi Puntinipuntini Wall Clock – Amara

This Puntinipuntini wall clock from Diamantini & Domeniconi just puts a smile on my face. It’s such a fun way to keep track of time. In a world where we take everything so seriously, maybe by adding the unexpected and injecting some fun into our homes can we help take the edge off the crazy world around us. If you’re not sure of the vivid pink there are other colours to choose from including a white and a black version which will suit most decor.

You don’t need to worry about the cuckoo sounding at an unreasonable hour either as it only functions when it detects light. It’d definitely have the kids entranced if not yourselves! Price: £190

 

MOVEMENT

ZUIVER MINIMAL WALL CLOCK in Black

Minimal Wall Clock from Zuiver – Cuckooland

Designed by Rik van Mierlo, the Minimal Wall Clock from Zuiver was inspired by an antique wooden pendulum clock. I personally think there’s something reassuring with pendulum clocks with their rhythmic movement going backwards and forwards. They have got a habit of making us slow down a little don’t you think?  It’s available in a choice of 3 colours it would make an eye-catching addition to any living room, hallway or kitchen! Price: £49

 

INDUSTRIAL VIBES

Karlsson Mini Flip Clock – Wood – Redcandy

I don’t know about you but I could definitely do with one of these in my life. Especially during school holidays when the days blur into one and you forget what day of the week it is let alone the date!. All three of my offspring have had to experience what I like to call practice days, which basically means I’ve sent them back to school a whole day too early!

The Mini Flip Clock also has some eco credentials with its bamboo case, as well as a clear and informative face. This stylish design would look fantastic in any home office or kitchen. A brilliantly informative and very cool timepiece, this classic timekeeper is a must-have gadget for the super organised! And fear not – this stylish square clock won’t be duped by irregular days in the month or leap years! Price Currently on sale at £140.

 

So which one would you choose? Or maybe you already own one of these. Either way, I hope I’ve inspired you with some stylish timekeepers.

 

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
