Fuck Yeah Hotel Hallway
I stay in a lot of hotels for work, and have become fascinated with the bizzarre carpet patterns often found in the hallways. I have collected them here for your viewing pleasure.

There's a strange and disorienting illusiony effect that happens if you scroll up or down the page really fast. I approve of unique and single subject tumblrs.

I like this but I have a fairly deliriously high fever right now so it may be that that is making it seem sensible in my mind. Some of those patterns are definitely fever dreams.

i have stayed in a lot of hotels too. I always notice the carpet and it is inevitably eye-hurting.
You're brave to capture it like this.

For posterity you ought to add the hotl names and locations. Cool idea. There must be a whole sub-specialty at hotel interior design firms engaged in corridor carpet design.

As someone who recently came off a road-trip in a different hotel each night for 8 days, this is a strange kind of awesome.

I'd love to also see straight-on evenly-lit photos of these carpets to use as desktop wallpaper and such.

Are you taking submissions? I would gladly photograph hotel hallways while I travel.
