Gone are the days of blackboards and clapping erasers after class. Today, chalkboards have become a thing of art. So, we’ve found 12 of the most beautiful and inspiring pieces of chalkboard expression. Go ahead and chalk these all up to stellar inspiration for your own masterpiece.
1. People Matter: We found this chalkboard at the Sevenly offices. What’s Sevenly, you ask? Each week their crew teams up with a different non-profit to raise funds for a particular cause over seven days. If that in and of itself isn’t inspiring, we don’t know what is. (via The Curated Life)
3. We Fit So Well Together: This installation showed up at the Ace Hotel during New York Fashion Week. The multiple fonts, the sewing needles, and the classic Yankees symbol – everything about this chalk art just screams classic New York. We approve. (via Tanamachi Studio)
4. Abi-Haus: Pass the smoked chicken, please. We totally agree with the sentiment and are head-over-heels for the intricate detailing in this piece that lives in a restaurant in Abilene, Texas. (via Ryan Feerer Design & Illustration)
5. Our Beautiful Home: This stairwell full of beautiful chalk art in the Andaz 5th Ave Hotel is mesmerizing. We recommend raiding the mini bar and munching on Macadamias while soaking it all in. (via Tanamachi Studio)
7. The Fondest Memories: What makes any meal better? Hand-lettered chalk inspiration to spruce up the table, of course. You can buy your own piece in Valerie McKeehan’s Etsy shop. (via Bliss in Images)
11. From Bean to Beverage: Such an extensive piece surely required a few lattes. Plus, all the coffee knowledge pouring out of this board in a Starbucks in Toronto makes us want to say, extra hot double shot! (via Behance)
