Good or bad idea? A provocative graffiti in the stairwell

There are many ways to make a house unique, something we are increasingly in need of, now that the design has been democratized and many people seem to live in a catalog, but I'm not sure if painting provocative graffiti in the stairwell is the best idea.

The graffiti in question is located on the stairs in a "prefabricated" house in Venice, California. I say prefabricated in quotes, because it is a lady house, designed by Marmol Radziner Prefab, some architects who make houses from modules, but, as you can see in the image with an aspect far removed from what the prefabricated word evokes in these places.

Thus, in a design environment, where dark wood, black steel and glass predominate, we find this great punk style graffiti, with strident colors (electric blue, pink, red, yellow, black) and large figures that occupy the entire stairwell.

I like the unique touch that graffiti gives to the house, if it is something exclusive to the owners, it denotes his great personality, something that is not seen in the rest of the house, where everything seems to fit harmonically. Without a doubt, I prefer it to an empty hollow or decorated with some photographs, but I would have opted for something less provocative, if only for my grandmother not to pass out downstairs when she saw him.

A modern and sustainable house in Surrey

Behind every house, every work, there is a story. A story full of dreams, of desires ... as the case of this house that we bring you today. Tony and Nicky Maude wanted a custom-made house.
