Art Nouveau Chalkboard

Why leave a wall alone when you can transform it with chalkboard paint? And why make a regular rectangular chalkboard when you can make it super snazzy and inspired by a turn of the century art era?

Art Nouveau in Brief

Centered around Paris in the early 1900s, Art Nouveau was a reaction against the stiff academic art of the 19th century.

In this new wave of art and architecture (and furniture), nature played the leading role with sensual organic forms and structures, including but not limited to curved lines.

What began as a conglomerative sketch of Siena’s whimsical aesthetic is now a beautiful (and practical) addition to one of the walls in the house. We enjoyed several evenings painting together in the nook-of-a-cranny space, and although the time-lapse experiment was not worthy of a nickelodeon,

may we present our latest endeavor as a smashing success.
