Writing On The Walls

Writing On The Walls

With the decal craze, the chalkboard wall crush (don't get us started…), and the current obsession with typography, we've grown somewhat accustomed to seeing words and letters gracing interiors. But what about actually writing on the walls — cool or taboo? You tell us.

One of my greatest feelings of artistic freedom came the day that I penned my favorite poem and accompanying sketch directly on the wall without being scolded by my dad. However, the thought of scrawling away on my walls now that I'm the homeowner doesn't have the same appeal somehow…

Is it ever acceptable, fashionable, or cool? What's your take?
