Trend Alert — Sea Life in Home Decor

A trend has swum its way into home decor—Sea Life. Schools of fish? Yes. But also lobster, squid, jellyfish, seahorses and even sea urchins are inhabiting home textiles, ceramics and an ocean of other accessories.

It’s an Etsy shopping day today and I’ve found some fabulous (and fun and funky) sea-life pieces for you.

The watery-coral design of Karen’s Cool Pots’ Sea-Inspired Pottery Bowl transports me to the sea. The fresh turquoisey-blue is also on trend. And let a whimsical little crustacean crawl onto your couch with Utilitarian Franchise’s Silk-Screened Slipper Lobster Pillow.

Serve up some smiles with Designs By Takemoto’s Hand-Carved, Clay Fish Bowl or with a set of Squid Ink Kollective’s Linen Tea Towels. And add a friend to a home or garden chair with Crabby Chris’ Hand-painted, Indoor/Outdoor Lobster Pillow.

Sometimes I choose things for you that just crack me up. That’s how I feel about Blue Terracotta’s Decorative, Peruvian-Inspired Fish Pillow, that can be made-to-order for you in France, in your choice of three colors. I love the combination of humor and rich fabrics.

Wild-card Pottery’s Sea Urchin Bud Vase is spiky gorgeousness.

I love all these sea inspired deco items. I’ve discovered some wonderful artists. Thank you for featuring my Peruvian fish!

It’s wonderful that we can all have a touch of the ocean around us, no matter how landlocked our location! Thank you for including my greenish lobster in this wonderful collection.
