The Chalkboard Revolution
For years now, the contemporary style of interior designing has been striving for a basic structure in homeliness. The sleek glossy outlook along with cutting edge technology makes for an intimidating effect of futurist modernism. Most small interiors build in the image of contemporary modern take refuge in the organ stylistic expression of industrialist and rustic architecture. The shabby chic outlook of such styles takes a bit of the edge off the sleek gloss of modern style. These spaces, on a very inherent level, lack warmth and a personal flair. While the intimate coziness can be effectively integrated with the help of strategic texturing, the personal flair is a bit more idealistic to enact. What you can do is take the chalk board revolution a la industrial style interiors, and make it an inherent part of your design – whatever you draw, whatever you might write, and whatever you decide to deliver will become a very small piece of you inside the ambiance of that space. Let’s take a look at a few such examples.
The chalkboard can be both a picture representation as well as a literary representation of your mood. You can always combine the both to create a homely feeling inside the space. The placement would completely depend on you – whichever rom you choose needs to embrace the essence of whatever you plan to write on the board. This one combines dining and ambiance; therefore the quote and fixtures have a meaningful effective combination.
