INSPIRATION: Blackboard walls

I’ve had a thing for blackboard walls for a while now.

And I’ve had an idea for one in our flat which was inspired by, of all people, Ben Fogle. I know, right? But seriously, his house is pretty cool. His kitchen has a supporting column, one side of which they’ve painted with blackboard paint. It creates a cool visual feature out of a fairly boring architectural detail and is potentially handy for scrawling notes on… if you can handle the fingernail factor.

Just the thought of a blackboard is enough to make my boyfriend wince but I’m convinced he’d like the effect. We have a small wall space which is actually the end of the dividing wall between the kitchen and living room. It’s just over a foot wide and I reckon it’d look ace painted black.

Like white, black provides a fantastic backdrop for art and accessories. As a result, not all of these are blackboard walls but the impact of the dark background enlivened with bright pictures, postcards and lettering, is much the same…

Cool, right? So what do you think? Should I do it?
