One thing that we’ve learned from interior design is to always expect the unexpected. And in this case, it’s the gradual adaptation of graffiti in our homes!

In a matter of decades, graffiti has shifted in the public eye from being an unspeakable eyesore, to becoming a valid and desirable kind of street art. And for those of us looking to give our homes a fresh and funky makeover, it’s a great place to get inspiration.

This graffiti styled accent wall below works beautifully in contrast to the clean whites, beige’s and browns to create a memorable feature in a way that is contemporary, yet somehow not overwhelming. The clever use of the tiling effect and soft colour palette help give the graffiti a defined and controlled feel.

And this hotel room in Budapest creates a much more rich and sumptuous atmosphere through the clever use of neon lighting, and the playful and iconic use of the clear white lines in the wall art.

As graffiti has an innate anarchic spirit, you can have great fun with it by contrasting it with some more traditional items such as a vase of flowers or a wooden writing desk. It’s all about creating a modern and non-fussy atmosphere!

And this blue graffiti living room really uses graffiti in a new and innovative way. By taking away the representative aspect of graffiti art, it becomes a more abstract expression like a free-flowing mural to add a sophisticated and ethereal backdrop to this living space.

But of course, like most things in interiors, the best way to deal with feature art is to take it up a gear and maximise the impact. This work-space might be slightly weather-worn for most tastes, but the amazing ‘love’ graffiti as a backdrop creates a very modern backdrop to the room.
