Fish scales are on my mind recently and i think it’s a combination of the weather and the fact that my friend told me she has to wear a mermaid style bridesmaid dress in an upcoming wedding.  Let’s be honest, not many people can pull this look off…J Lo might be able to but it’s just cruel to put your average figured bridesmaids in it.

Luckily, in design, you get to dress up your walls and floors and tabletops and it doesn’t matter what your figure looks like.  Here are some fish scale items for your home that will definitely make a splash.
