I really liked this idea of having the walls of the coffee shop be the blackboard. However, Camino is a coffee shop with a wooden interior, so it wouldn't work for my brief, but it's definitely interesting. It's funky and different and eye catching.
i think it would be adorable to do something like this in a kitchen. have a chalkboard wall for kids, notes, to-do lists etc. add some cute lights and make a focal wall. probably on the side of the kitchen
