This indoor graffiti lets you take urban cityscapes home with you. Interior designers are increasingly getting inspired by urban street art, recreating that edgy vibe indoors.

With indoor graffiti, walls take on a splash of green, blue, gold and pink. If you're not ready for a full wall commitment, experiment with smaller household items--think lampshades, a toothbrush holder or even a pillow. Indoor graffiti gives a pop of color to any room.

Implications - In the last few years, graffiti and street art have moved from shunned subculture to celebrated genre of the art world. Thanks to artists like Banksy, graffiti and street art are moving from the underground and into the mainstream. A company can establish it's 'cool credibility' by commissioning a piece from a famous artist or creating a co-branded product. Both show a commitment to the arts and a willingness to think outside of the box. Both will attract attention from interesting consumers.
