I’ve shared my love for graffiti and street art on the blog before, because I love the impact it can make in a neighbourhood when executed properly. Living on the border of Newtown has exposed me to so much amazing street style, and I’m so glad it’s finally coming indoors so we can benefit from its edginess. Let’s take a look at some amazing graffiti interiors!
I think graffiti looks stunning sprayed across a feature wall. Not only does it look incredibly modern (it’s certainly not a trend that’s been brought back), but it allows lovers of simple furniture design to still have some wow factor in their space. Given that the New York warehouse trend is still quite prominent in interior design, a graffiti wall only elevates this aesthetic – giving it an edginess you won’t find in most homes.
You’ll notice below the style is far more minimal, with tagging taking prominence on the wall below. This look would play quite nicely in a paired-back, Scandi space, where a relaxed vibe is required. By using just a few paint colours in similar shades, it also allows you to play with more interesting furniture pieces and allow them to dominate the room.
Of course, if you’re not bold enough to go all out with a feature wall laden with graffiti, consider spray painting some of your own furniture pieces or investing in some store-bought ones. There are companies locally that’ll do this for you (Tomo & Coach created the crates above), but I also like the idea of getting some spray paint and doing over a second-hand piece of furniture yourself.
Personally I like that street art is making a name for itself and moving away from the negative connotations graffiti has fallen prey to in the past. There is a difference between the two, and I think most people can recognise stunning street art when they see it!
