Westminster Wall Clock, London (UK) Edition Review + GIVEAWAY! #Homaste

We moved into our house just over 5 years ago & I will admit that I'm not the best at making decisions about home decor. I love too much stuff! So I can never decide what I want on my walls. I've got photos, artwork & wall hangings but I've never put up a clock. I've looked at a LOT of clocks but just never could decide which one was THE one. So I jumped on the opportunity to review this Westminster Wall Clock, London (UK) Edition because I loved the look of it.

I don't really know what my decorating "style" is. I just want my home to be comfortable, casual & welcoming. So I buy things that I love to look at, make me happy & at least fit with the colors that are already in the room. And I like that way this clock looks!

It has a big over-sized face with Roman numerals that are very easy to see, even from the other side of the room. It has beautiful Victorian details. The face is made of glass & the case looks like wood but is actually a very lightweight material that is painted to look like wood. I was really surprised when I unwrapped it & felt how light it really is. It looks like it would be much heavier. But that's the great part! I don't need any heavy-duty hanger to put this clock on the wall. It can be hung with just a nail & anchor if you're hanging it on sheetrock. If you're nailing it into a stud, then all you need is the nail. Hanging instructions are included in the box.

Okay. Now is when I admit that my clock is not yet on the wall. We're repainting our living room so I am waiting until that project is finished to find the perfect place to hang it. Right now it is just propped up on the top of our piano. But it still looks great!

I really love the look of the clock face (sorry, that's the reflection of our ceiling fan in the photo). It's a warm beige instead of stark white like so many clocks that I've looked at. The hands & case are nicely detailed. It runs on 1 AA battery (not included) & is easy to set with a dial on the back of the clock. It has a nice quiet "tick" that is really quite comforting but not noticeable unless the house is quiet.

So. Here is what I think about the Westminster Wall Clock, London (UK) Edition: I think this is a beautiful clock. It is a really nice size & is going to look even better once it's actually on my wall! I love the design & style even though I don't have another Victorian piece in my home. It just blends in with my colors & makes me feel happy when I look at it.
