Today, I want to take you on an unusual journey, a week of my feet! Inspired by a popular hashtag #IhaveThisthingsWithFloors, I decided to take on Luxury Flooring challenge and photograph all cool flooring types I found on my way, one each day. I'm totally obsessed with taking photos of my feet, whether it's a floor or shoes' or outfit, or whatever I find interesting on floors and believe me there is so many weird, funny and less describable what I can find on Manchester floors... Right, let's stick to the subject :)
While working as an interior designer, I have seen so many floor types, with amazing textures, designs and colours. From pretty tiles to carpets, rugs. Ah, I could just go on and on! Flooring these days is such an interesting subject! My favourite type lately is Victorian-Italian modern patchwork. Picture on top was taken at Manchester city centre florist store, right before they were making flower arrangements and I caught the ''mess'' ;) A beautiful mess!)
Let's take you on a journey then!
The first photo was taken at Wedgwood pottery factory in their beautiful restaurant. I totally adore the monochrome pattern! It was so beautifully detailed as well. I went there to a blogger event and we also enjoyed a yummy afternoon tea!
The second photo is taken in a small boutique shop in Didsbury, near Manchester. As soon as I walked in, I was like, I love the floor! And of course, I said that out loud, taking other customer attention and making the owner laugh. I wasn't after their products, all I could see was the floor. I think I am excused after showing you the photo!
Next up is marbled tiles at House of Fraser in London, Kensington! As soon as we walked in with Natalia another interior blogger, one look onto the floor, without any further conversation we both automatically grabbed our phones and started taking ''shoe selfies'' or 'shoefie'' how we call it these days! It's was just a must!
This beautifully patterned circle you can find at the largest shopping centre in Manchester called Trafford centre! This place is full of amazing features like pink marble and statues even a self-playing piano! Tip! This circle was spotted by mua at the footbridge toward homewares!
This flooring was taken at my old office on my last day, before I was gently fired ;) Well, I wasn't fired, they just didn't extend my contract. Same thing. As I was leaving with my stash of boxes, while waited for a taxi, I looked down on floor feeling rather upset and then spotted! Love this pattern! I guess, I kept my head too high before;)
This cobble floor is right next where I live! It's funny because I deeply hate this floor while wearing high heels but I love it when I want to photograph outfit from the top! So just or the love-hate relationship with this floor, I felt like I had to honour it and include into the week of my feet!
The last one is my a pub floor! Manchester Revolution de Cuba bar! They have mixed few types of flooring there and it was so hard to pick one! I decided on this pattern in the end! Tip: Try their cocktails! The floor gets better after the second one ;) Just don't overdue as you want to still admire from the top, not facing it down!
Ah, here you go a bonus a'la naturelle! Wales right by the seaside!
I feel like I could do this post every week! Manchester is full of amazing places!
Which one is your favourite??
