Writing on the Wall

Writing on the Wall

We live in an era where literature has taken a turn towards dystopia, utopia, urban fantasy and so many more genres that were only just a distant forethought in the past. An entire community of bloggers call themselves ‘book nerds’ and convene for Lit Clubs and online communities where fandoms ship their one true pairings and register for fan events. It is an entire subculture of the internet genre, and of course there must be some reflection of that in the interiors that they live in. Recently, a woman painted the entire first page of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone onto her feature wall, and that is the kind of interior scape that we’ll be discussing today. Writing on the wall may have been considered a childish execution of an artistic form back in the past, but today, it has become a huge trend. Not only does it give a distinct vibe to the interior ambiance, it also gives the person an opportunity to add a bit of a personal flair to their space in the most intimate of ways. Today, we’ll be looking at a few interiors that have managed to execute this expression pretty well.
