"When I came back to Paris I started noticing all these different colorful tiles and mosaic floors"

Brilio.net - We’d like to walk a mile in these shoes. Specifically  Sebastian Erras shoes that is. The French interiors photographer started an Instagram account that will brighten up your feeds. Last May he started parisianfloors which has since garnered over 67,000 followers. The inspiration came from his trip to Marrakesh, where he visited the Bahia Palace. He said of his inspiration: “There I found some beautiful mosaic floors and while walking through the monument I started taking some pictures of these mosaic floors and included my feet as a reference that it is actually a floor. I work a lot in Paris, where I shot Interiors, and when I came back to Paris I started noticing all these different colourful tiles and mosaic floors in hallways, restaurants, galleries and cafes.”

His beautiful photographs are as symmetrical as they are mesmerizing, and always feature a pair of cool shoes.  "In the beginning I didn’t pay too much attention on what kind of shoes I was wearing. However after I noticed the growing amount of comments on the shoes, I started paying more attention on what kind of shoes to wear. It’s the only other element that is visible in the image and that gives it kind of a personal connection to me,” writes Erras. "So in a way the shoes kind of represent me. Now I am trying as well to step up the game a little and push the artistic side of it more by trying to match the shoes with the floors. Most of the time when I go out hunting for floors I have a second or even third pair of shoes in my backpack, just in case."

Take a look below at the awe-striking pics.  "I have always had a weak spot for patterns and symmetry, and being an interior photographer, the 'Parisian floors' project fits well into what I like and do,” writes Erras.
