Fish scale tiles (also known as scallop, mermaid or fan tiles) are one of my favourite tile shapes at the moment. Sophisticated yet still playful, you may have seen this trend popping up in your Instagram and Pinterest feeds.
Whereas typical mermaid trends generally feature pastel and candy colours, the key to avoiding an overly feminine-look is to use tasteful, muted tones or a deep navy and blue colour palette.
Here’s my Pinterest roundup of some of my favourite spaces that have embraced the fish scale effect.
