Splatter Decor: Splattered Paint as Home Design Element

splatter Splash Ignazio Gardella, Digamma, for Gavina, 1956

During our obsessive rampage at AQQ Index the other day, we came across two compelling images of “splatter” decor. At top, Gavina’s display of Italian architect Ignazio Gardella‘s Digamma chair from 1956 with its beautiful splattered wall. Then, we found artist Duggie Field’s 1976 interiors where splatters become the unifying element in his colorful multi-patterned rooms. Splatters and dribbles can be a very cool design element that loosens up a space.

….Fields LOVES splatter and uses it widely, from living rooms…

Splatter works fine in less extreme environments. Here’s a kid’s play room from the ’50′s with a fab splatter floor:

…all, we imagine, inspired by Jackson Pollock’s liberating splatter paintings...
