The new The Little Mermaid movie has absolutely delivered. Now it's time to 'seas' the day with these decor buys that'll remind you of the film. As much as I cringe at "core" being added on the tail end of every fashion and interior trend — I'm officially saying "yeah buoy" to mermaidcore.
From iridescent finishes, swirly motifs, and scaly designs, the fashion and beauty industry is already riding the wave of Ariel-inspired looks. And now we're seeing it slipping its way into the world of interiors.
I've trawled the net, to ensure that you can make waves in your small space, whether you're splashing the cash, or have only got a few clams to spare.
$9.99 for 6
Yes, this apartment decor is extra AF, but these clam-shaped bowls are great for serving up soy sauce at your sushi party or candy. Not a foodie? Use them as trinkets for your jewelry, whatsits, and gizmos galore.
If you're a Vanilla girl who can't quite commit to a full-on sea of color, try these squishy soft shell pillows for size. Scatter them on your couch or arrange them on your bed. Shell yeah!
A tail tale
I wish I had one of these when I was studying at college to keep my tootsies warm while I was swimming in assignments. So friends and relatives, listen up. This makes a great dorm room gift, and it's available in four dreamy colors.
Upscale your style
We all know that sequins are what humans wear for Mermaid vibes, so this wall art makes perfect sense. It'd suit a gal who loves vintage glam, or if you're a Pisces, it's the perfect piece of decor for your star sign.
Under the sea
You'll be salty AF if you fail to get your hands on this fresh home fragrance. Even if you live inland, you can still capture the smell of coastal air with this candle. Use this to mask any fishy smells in your kitchen, too.
Surfing the net
Give your WFH space some underwater feels with a desk mat. There are tons of mermaid desk mats on Society6, but this one happens to have that je ne sais quoi about it. As well as looking stylish, the non-slip underside will stop your mouse and keyword from flipping about.
$95 for 2
Iridescent glassware is a cute way to dip your toes (or should that be tail) into mermaidcore. These pearlescent coupes are ideal for serving up a "mer-tini," something "on the rocks," or a cute salt-rimmed cocktail.
$98.90 for 4-person set
The (culinary) world is your oyster with these pearly forks, knives, and spoons from Hghom. Part bubblecore, part mermaidcore — this tableware set is "shore" to impress. Just don't use the fork as a hairbrush, as it won't bode well IRL.
