These Interiors were Made for Walking

Today sees the start of the National - Walk to Work Week.  Walk to Work Week (12-16 May) is an opportunity for employees across the UK to make walking part of their commute. Along with Walk to School Week (19-23 May), Walk to Work Week forms a part of Living Streets’ National Walking Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the benefits of walking. Walk to Work Week A4 poster We all know it is not possible for everyone to walk to work, so take a few minutes each day to go for a stroll and some fresh air.  You could also take this one stage further by adding some 'walking' interiors into your home. Walk this Way We start with interiors you walk-in to.  As followers to this blog will know I love walk-in wardrobes, so I couldn't start this collection with anything better.  This Hammonds Furniture is simple yet stunning, they have recreated Carrie Bradshaw's walk in wardrobe to create the WOW effect, oh and there is plenty of storage too.
