1. Shower Accent

3. Go Neutral

Going neutral with your Moroccan Fish Scales is a great way to offer a subtle backdrop to your space, while enhancing the overall design. These 130 White Large Fish Scales have a glossy finish that reflect the light beautifully, especially in a kitchen or bathroom.

4. Color Blocking

A more stylized approach to mermaid tile design is to play around with color blocking. Like in fashion, choosing colors across the color chart to complement each other is a sure-fire way to make a playful design come alive. This primary-colored palette is an excellent example of color-blocking that uses just enough restraint to really make it work.
