Chalkboard panels are now derigeuer in kitchens, playrooms, kids bedrooms, cafes and shops - but sometimes a black board doesnt quite work. Recently I redid the blinds in my sons room and wanted to put in a big chalkboard to cover a dodgy looking old wardrobe door. I ended up using one of Porters Paints great range of chalkboard paints. I particularly like the darker shades and used Sea Monster - an inky navy blue to tie in with the blind fabric LiguriaAzul from KA International shown on the sofa below.
I am a Sydney based Interior Designer. I started this blog in 2008 while I was at home with my two boys. Time pressure has meant that the Folder of Ideas has taken a backseat to my Interior Design business O'Meara Jones which I run with my business partner Andrea Jones. I still refer to the Folder of Ideas as a source of inspiration and hope that you will continue to do so too !
