Smudgy Framed Chalkboards + Nudes in the Living Room

This interior by designer and stylist Carlos Mota jumpstarted two great ideas for our space. We wondered:  Is that a painting or a framed chalkboard, wiped out in the most purposely smudgy way, with nude drawn on it? We love the idea of a chalkboard framed to be a constantly changing artwork. And especially a nude smack in the middle of a living space, which can’t help but cool it out.

We thought of Carlo Mollino’s nudie mirror
