During the graffiti boom, where new, more complex styles of this novel art form were being expressed by 'writers' in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, the 'writing' took on a competitive vibe where the scale of the words morphed into 'masterpieces' and exclusive designs were now known as 'tags'.
Fast forward to today, and we know graffiti as an amazing expression of self in urban art; what better way to make a nondescript bedroom space your very own than to appoint graffiti comforters and other bedding that sport such a fascinating written art form?
Scroll down for a glimpse of uber-urban graffiti bed sets at their very best along with cool ideas to take your room up a notch--or ten. And I've included some great examples of graffiti bedding and related accessories and wall art you're gonna love along with tips on how to use them for a jaw-dropping result.
Getting Started with Your Graffiti Theme Bedroom: Go for the Bold in Graffiti Bedding
Ideally, you want to begin your decor scheme with the room's focal point (the space's largest decorative element).
Beds make the ultimate show-stopper in bedrooms: they're often the space's largest piece, so your bedding has quite a job of setting the stage, introducing your theme and anchoring all other supporting decorative pieces.
Your Space's Voice: Your Own Graffiti Bedding Style Speaks Out
Decide what ''voice' you want your bedding to betray. Will it be a splash of loud color? Or, will you be going dark and mysterious? Obviously, color brings an uplifting air about it, while the black and white bedding is the serious version of 'cool'.
There's no wrong choice; it's all very personal. Go with your passion in making your space truly yours. Here's a selection of bedding that will support your graffiti theme. Some of the bed sets here are obviously full-on graffiti but don't limit yourself to graffiti-or-bust pieces. I explain more about this below.

A Bit About Graffiti's Beginning
Graffiti: An Enduring Art Form
Graffiti was born in the 1960s at a time of free love and expression, so it makes sense to pair up the decade's trademark styles with the likes of tie dye, peace signs and other groovy art. As I mentioned, everything in your room needn't be graffiti. Unique decor depends on melding your favorite interests into one broad spectrum. I know, I've made that idea seem complicated but really, just mix and match to your hearts content but try and keep things related in color, design or other elements you find a great match.
The bed sets here are just the cusp of what's available in 60's theme if that's where you're going. Notice that while these bed sets aren't graffiti, the graffiti wall art I show below go quite well when paired with the hues in these bedding sets. They both (the art and bedding) complement each other without being overdone.
What Graffiti Themed Bedroom Pieces are You Looking For: Girls' or Boys' Bedding & Decor?
Using Rugs in Your Space Rugs can do more than feel great underfoot; they can create the illusion of more floor space, ground the room's other pieces and transform the look of cold, hard floors into a warm ambiance. That's a lot to expect from a single decor element but rugs really earn their keep in any space they occupy if your floor space could use a few more feet here and there, consider placing the rug on the diagonal or semi-sharp angle tucked just under the bed a bit. Stand back and watch your room grow! Well, not really but the illusion is there and I'm a big-time fan of instant results. Bare, hard floors can leave a room looking cold and unfinished. Rugs tie the room's decor while creating a cohesive, finished look you'll love.This graffiti rug will tie in perfectly with your new theme without draining all the attention away from your focal point. Isn't it quite the unique piece?
I recommend using a comforter set like this one or those few below that'll work in your graffiti space quite nicely. This comforter set, while skater related, can lose most of its skateboard spirit when paired with graffiti wall art (I've some fabulous wall art, below) and accessories.Don't go overboard, just include enough of the graffiti theme to overshadow your bedding's original non-graffiti voice.
