The Half Graffiti Hotel Room

Imagine walking into your hotel room and experiencing this! Artist Tilt has created Panic Room inside the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. The unique hotel has five rooms which are redone annually by a different artist. In essence, they invite artists, graphic designers and painters into their rooms to create amazing and distinct atmospheres.

Though there isn’t much information about this particular room yet (we’re still searching), the photos, taken just last month by designer and photographer Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin), speak for themselves. While one side of the room is decorated in stark white, the other has Tilt’s colorful graffiti spray painted all over, including the walls, the floor, and even the bed!

Talk about messing with your mind…

Update: We got in touch with a representative from the hotel to find out more. Read more about this unique experience, here.
