You don’t have to cover your walls in pink or bring in floral prints from floor to ceiling to create a feminine feeling throughout your home. Who would want to do that anyway?

The trick to creating an effortless feminine look, similar to the interiors here, is to infuse small bits here and there, while keeping the rest of the room a little more simplistic. It will make the space feel inviting, not overwhelming.

Welcome to the first look at Interior Obsessions with FormFire Glassworks.

I’m thrilled to be able to shift the work I’ve done with Room by Room into an exciting look into the world of gorgeous interiors, and I hope you enjoy my new venture! In the spirit of clearing away the old and embracing a new, more current vision, this week’s lineup centers on the use of chalkboard paint in the home.

Although I have to say I would have a hard time with the more relaxed feel of a chalkboard wall in my own home (the perfectionist tendencies really kick in here,) chalkboards are a great way to either organize schedules, keep lists or add a little temporary artwork to a space. The more matte surface that the paint provides is also a great foil to a semi-gloss or high gloss trim or cabinet paint, and gives a different type of textural look that can be a great focal point within your living space.
