Dianna Agron Encourages Graffiti in Her House

When Dianna Agron moved into her home, she acknowledged that her bathroom desperately needed some livening up. Instead of giving it a fresh paint job, she decided to invite all house guests to draw on the bare walls with markers, leaving quotes, little drawings, and name tags.

In a pieces for arts journal ‘AfterZine’ Agron discusses her bathroom, as well as the joy and inspiration it brings her daily.

"I find that happiness often relates to feeling child-like... My bathroom happens to be a room in which my guests can use for an escape. That sounds wrong. Let's start over. The walls in my downstairs restroom are covered in ink. It is glorious. I mean, how often are we allowed to draw on the walls? Growing up, I was told to never draw on the wall, which is why my washroom makes me smile every time I enter it. Sweet rebellion, even in its smallest form.

"The idea came to me because it was stark white when I moved in - I just had to spruce it up a little bit. I bought a ton of markers, put them in a pail, and let the games begin."
