It isn’t healthy to put ourselves into boxes or to give ourselves labels. However ‘Home Obssesed’ is one label I have to admit sticks well for me. (I also kinda like it)
The process of selling our house has been tough for such a variety of reasons all of which are completely boring and obvious. Yet the desire to improve our home has been the hardest reason of them all. I just want to paint all the walls and buy a new rug for the lounge so badly.
Completely unable to curb that desire I have been making small additions here and there. I am mainly talking about cushions, candles and the odd strategically placed pumpkin. My most recent (and arguably most exciting) has been the Bramwell Brown weather clock. Initially it was going to be kept in its box until we finally found a house and moved. When our house sale fell through I felt it would be the tonic to make me feel better again and got Si to hang it for me.
If you haven’t seen one of these clocks before then not only do they tell the time but also they forecast the weather due the changes in air pressure. Which means the little clouds spin around to show you sunshine or thunderstorms and anything in-between. I am so in love with it. When I chose the clock it was with the idea that we would be living in a more contemporary style of house however I think it works so well in this house too. Our dining room has always had a mixture of modern and cottage feel to it and it was calling out for a clock (after I managed to break the last one)
Clock by Bramwell Brown
The dining room is still firmly one of my favourite rooms in the house and now the boys are at school it is where I spend most of my day. I turn the table into one big desk with cameras, notepads and pens sprawled everywhere. Having the clock means I can plug my phone in to charge in another room and fully concentrate on the work I need to do. Otherwise my excuse is that I’m checking the time but in reality I spent 20 minutes scrolling instagram and get absolutely nothing done. I am sure I am not alone in doing this! Instagram is such a time thief!
I am so pleased with the new clock. We have it in Cloudy grey but it also come in a few other colours too. Ours is the large clock. I think it makes a perfect and fun addiction to the house. The boys absolutely love checking the weather on it too!
*I was very Kindly gifted this clock from Bramwell Brown. However I have been lusting after one for ages and it absolutely didn’t disappoint. All words and opinions are my own.
