a little bit of chalkboard paint…

i keep noticing the growing theme of chalkboard walls and think it is such an inventive way of gaining a little character and personality in a room. i’m very tempted to follow this trend…i wonder how many coats of white it would take if you changed your mind t?! here are a few of my favourites…

i’ve had this image in a folder on my desktop for a while now and finally managed to track down where i found it…apartment therapy. Close Up! Tracey Falk’s Key Hook. I love this personalized style it appears so effortless but judging by the rest of Tracey’s beautiful apartment that was covered in a post by the guys at apartment therapy everything in this amazing apartment is totally thought out and each little detail implicitly considered.

on the top of my wish list is an orange smeg fridge, however i think for the time being i’d be happy to settle for this awesome idea of painting a regular fridge with some chalkboard paint…inspired. the rest of this apartment really caught my eye too. i have a small or rather large obsession with red brick walls…discovered at design sponge the following pics are taken from the home of Amanda Orcutt of the beautiful online shop Amandromeda…i adore the industrial piping on the ceilings and mismatched modern/vintage style.

i like the idea of having an entire wall in your office or studio space totally painted in chalkboard paint, it would save all the hassle of post-it notes and be much more personal…i’d probably end up doodling way too much though and forgetting to actually write stuff down! oh well nice idea…

the wallpaper on the left hand wall is pretty nice too…
