Is there an expanded view where I could see the complete stripe attern on the ceiling? I love the idea - Curious how asymmetrical you went with the width between stripes across the whole ceiling.

At this time we don't have a picture that showcases the ceiling in it's entirety. You can get a glimpse of more of it on the the picture we have posted here:

Is there a particular brank of chalkboard paint that you would use? - I have some for a smaller project, but don't know if the quality is good enough for entire wall?

Benjamin Moore's Universal black, Provence Creme and Dark Lime are a similar color combination.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to 14 Bedrooms That Grow With Kids
A black wall makes for a very sophisticated nursery (with lot of opportunity for bright pops of color). Use chalkboard paint and this becomes the perfect graffiti wall for ages 2 to 18.
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: The Ecofriendly Nursery
Green tip: Fake a cowhide rug with the DIY Faux Hide rug set from Flor, made with recycled content; shown here in green.Nursery style notes: Scoop up an armful of empty picture frames on the cheap at local yard sales, then paint them cheerful hues to add dimension to an artful display.
Fake TaxidermyThis is another big one in eclectic modern design. It's funny and winking and ironic — very much a product of the time.
