Featured dragonfly clock review

best wall clock for great home décor accents

You know how there is always one item that catches your eye when you are shopping? This is the one I latched onto when I went browsing for a dragonfly clock to add to my kitchen. Of course this one would fit in any room.

There are several things that attracted me to this one and not just the price! I like the irregular slate material and the range of colors used on the face.

As usual the accurate quartz movement runs on AA batteries and will obviously keep good time.

I have to honest and say I would have liked this to be a bit bigger - it is only 5 inches wide by 7 inches long. But that said, it fits in very nicely.

I think what people love so much about dragonflies is how delicate they look - that and the huge range of colors they come in, makes them an ideal choice for decorating any room in the house.

A look through any natural book, or even a surf on the internet, will show you something like 5000 different type of dragonflies. If you decide you would like to create a room with this theme that is where to start. Pick out one or more that you would like to make you main focus and go from there.

Just as an example, I've chosen this gorgeous yellow-winged chaser to demonstrate what I mean.

What colors can you use?

What colors do you see there you could use?

I see - orange, pale orange, blue, green and a touch of rust red. Looking at the wings you could incorporate gray and, of course, anything echoes the flimsy, ethereal look of wings. In that respect I would probably use thin, lacey or net curtains in one of those colors.

For my ideal bedroom, I would paint the walls in the pale orange and choose a darker orange carpet. For bedding I would pick out green with blue and rust throw pillows. Around the room I would blend all of these colors together with relevant accents.
