When it comes to interior design in my own home, the most adventurous I've ever been with my walls is wallpaper. I even wallpapered our living room a few weeks back in some sort of crazy nesting urge, a friend came round whilst I was half way up a ladder and asked what I was thinking being that I was 7 months pregnant at the time.
Recently a new interior trend has popped up called 'floor inversion'. The idea is that instead of limiting flooring to, well, the floor, you use it in a more unexpected place like the walls. Whilst that idea might sound crazy (it did to me at first) after browsing Pinterest for inspiration, I've really come round to the idea!

I've been working with Wickes to curate a Pinterest board solely for 'floor inversion' inspiration, when I'm brave enough to give the idea a go in our own home. I actually really love the idea of limiting it to a feature wall, choosing a wood that would complement our own wooden floors and maybe accessorising that with some hanging baskets too. If I was choosing a colouring for my own home, I think I'd probably have to go for the Fiorentino Chestnut. I love the idea of having it behind your bed also giving the illusion almost of an extended headboard.
If you follow me over on Instagram you might have seen a few frazzled mentions of the building work we are undertaking at the moment. For the longest time we've wanted to put back the wall previous owners took down in our living space and return the downstairs back to two separate rooms. On top of this, we decided to knock out basically all of our back wall and turn it into large French doors. As it so often goes, work has taken a little longer than expected and now approaching 37 weeks it's almost finished up and hopefully by the end of the week my stress levels will have sorted themselves out as we get our home back to normal. I love the idea of creating my own project within my home using my Pinterest board as inspiration.
