Along with the unicorn fad, the mermaid trend has made a massive hit in the high street fashion sector recently with shoppers joyfully embracing their inner child. Since their popularity peak in the fashion sector, these seaside inspired designs have mildly matured and steadily leaked into the bathroom business.
Fired Earth’s Paris Cabaret tiles (featured) present a gorgeous scale-like shape reminiscent of elegant ocean creatures. The tiles are handmade, hand-decorated and are shown here in a collection of Cream, Opal, Sage, and Turquoise colours. This collaboration of ocean hues, all sitting somewhere on the spectrum of blue-green, really reflect a beautiful beachy image. Equally, these Fired Earth designs are reminiscent of exotic international styles that are topping the interior design trends right now.
But mermaid scale-shaped tiles aren’t the only possible way to inject beautiful beachy elements into your bathroom. Shimmering mosaic tiles, shabby chic cream coloured furniture, natural materials, plenty of natural light sources and a prominent freestanding bath will each add a touch of seaside style into your scheme.
Whether you opt for delicate touches or diving straight in with a full ocean inspired bathroom, this striking style will give your bathroom a summery tone all year round.
Advice from the experts – “Turquoise, aqua and green are instantly evocative of the ocean and have a fresh, invigorating feel that’s perfect for bathrooms. Look for tiles in eye-catching shapes for added visual interest and a welcome sense of texture. The sweeping, wave-like curves of Fired Earth’s Paris Cabaret tiles are ideal and they’re also perfectly in keeping with the trend for using pattern in the home.”
