10 Mermaid-Inspired Items to Kick-Start Your Happily Ever After

Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?

When it finally arrives, summertime feels like a fairy tale. No more April showers or winter snow storms, just warm weather, sunshine and relaxation. A trip to the beach is usually in order, and for many people that can bring out their inner mermaid.

Mermaids have been a particularly trendy mythical creature this year — second only to unicorns — and their shimmering fins have shown up everywhere, from clothes to makeup to food. Luckily, for the home-obsessed sea sirens out there, there are also tons of mermaid-themed options for decorating that add a summery, nautical vibe to any space.

Look at this stuff, isn't it neat? These 10 items will satisfy your mermaid fever and hopefully help you say hello to your home’s happily ever after.

1: Float On

Combining two huge Instagram-worthy trends (mermaids and pool floats), this water accessory is a relaxing new home for any aspiring ocean-dweller.

2: Guiding Light

These shell-esque lamps make for amazing selfie lighting and add maritime touches that don’t feel as outdated or kitschy as a swordfish wall hanging.

3: Walking On Water

Serene pops of color and shimmering shine make this rug a cute and feminine choice without veering into kids territory (though you’re never too old for fairytales).

4: Fairy Tail

We all know Ariel got a raw deal having to give up her tail. If only she had this blanket! It's perfect for cozying up on cooler summer nights and let's you enjoy the best parts of both worlds.

5: Along the Coast

Guests will stare longingly at this scene with its abstract touches and bold use of color. Let this piece make a statement in an otherwise muted room.

6: Sparkling Tide

Though diamonds are a girl’s best friend, sea glass is a mermaid’s favorite gem. Keep this coral reef pillow on the couch for a subtle seafaring accent.

What is a mermaid without her best mermaidens? This cheerful curtain is sure to lift your spirits…and your voice in the shower.

8: Deep Blue Sea

Bath bombs don't just help humans relax. Mermaids need their own downtime too and this brings the clear, blue ocean waters to your bathroom. Bonus: It doesn’t look like an eyesore in the corner of the tub or counter.

On your way out the door, give that seashell bra (or tankini) one last glance with the help of this handmade mirror.
