Kate Moss has commissioned Banksy to paint a mural in her mansion.

The supermodel – who recently splashed out on a top-of-the-range sauna and steam room for her £7 million north London home – is paying the British guerrilla artist £150,000 to create a custom-made "eclectic" painting of her on a wall inside her home.

A source said: "Kate is a big fan of Banksy and has several prints of his, plus a few originals, at her home. He has even done a portrait of Moss herself. She explained exactly what she wanted and Banksy gave her a quote. It wasn't cheap.

"Kate asked for an entire wall to be painted, showing Kate on the catwalk at all stages of her career – from a fresh-faced 16 year old to her last appearance earlier this year. It is pretty eclectic. Banksy has even been given a set of keys so he can let himself in."

The 36-year-old catwalk beauty – who has asked for the painting to also feature a number of well known faces including her friends Sadie Frost, Naomi Campbell and Lily Allen - expects the artwork to increase the value of her home.

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Kate hopes the Banksy artwork, in addition to the work in her loft, will at least add £200,000 to the value of her house. She has thought all this through and hopes to make a considerable profit when she eventually sells up."
