Best Bet: Flip It


When it comes to interior design, we have a soft spot (usually coupled with a streak of envy) for rooms that seamlessly blend modern and retro elements: record players, dated photos, refurbished vintage furniture. This heavy-duty acrylic clock from A&G Merch is a slick little accent piece, with oversize, flipping numbers and a bold black-and-white display. (It's also battery-operated, so you can prop it on a shelf without worrying about hiding dangling cords.) Best of all, it fits into our limited decorating budget: originally $39, it's now on sale for $29.
