Time to change the clocks. Literally.

I was SO super happy this past Sunday when we changed our clocks for Daylight Savings!  One of the toughest things for me each winter is the darkness, and I relish each additional minute of light as we move towards spring and summer.

This year in addition to changing the time, I changed the whole clock.  I’ve had the digital clock in the photo above since I was in college.  Of course I am slightly sentimental about it for that reason and it still works, but it’s just not that stylish and doesn’t do much for the overall look of my room.

So when I saw this clock at West Elm I pounced on it.  I’m a big fan of form and function; practical things can be designed well and stylish.  I like this clock because it’s retro and modern at the same time.  It’s also silent, so I’m not kept awake by any annoying ticking.  If you look at the before and after pictures you can see it makes a big difference to my room by kicking up the style factor and making it look more cohesive.  Next on the list to change is the lamp, which also needs a style update.

Of course you probably noticed the vase of flowers that was added in the after pic.  I’ve been practicing flower arranging and plan to do a post about that in the future.  And if you’ve got really keen eyes, you probably noticed the book of my namesake on the nightstand.  You can look forward to a post about that too!  In the meantime enjoy the ever increasing light!

  1. Saw the flowers and liked the clock, but missed “Jonica’s Island”! /then I saw it was in the pre-clock change pic, too. 🙂
