Graffiti wallpaper and chalkboard trends
Chalkboard drawings, graffiti wallpaper, typography trend, calligraphy wallpaper, whichever way it’s written, the graffiti and the chalking trend is all over interiors right now.
Wallpaper prints featuring distinctive scrawled design bring a raw, stylishly reckless energy to a room. The look is edgy and modern with options to introduce colour or stick to classic black and white typography. Street style meets wallpaper.
Graffiti has not always been confined to walls. In keeping with its breakout spirit and rebel reputation, creative types and designers have long since been drawn to the concept of scrawled art. Remember the Louis Vuitton graffiti speedy 30, inspired by Stephen Sprouse and designed by Marc Jacobs? This standout collaboration (around 2001 and 2009) celebrated street vibes, fashion, and art in strikingly memorable designs. Graffiti love endures and Louis Vuitton has re-issued the graffiti collections over the years.
When it comes to chalkboard inspiration, you can buy wallpaper pre-designed with mock chalk prints. Alternatively, choose chalkboard paint, which allows you to add your own chalk marks or encourage house guests and family members to leave comments (at your own risk).
