When Life's A Beach, You Need This Mermaid-Themed Decor

Live your best, most mermaid-y life.

If Disney taught you anything, it's that everything's supposed to be better under the sea. (And that a giant, talking mouse in your home is adorable, not freaking terrifying.) You may live on land, but that doesn't mean you can't still live your best aquatic-inspired life at home. A few mermaid-y touches — from shells and starfish to scales and sparkles — here and there can go a long way in adding some personality to a room, and they can look totally stylish, too.

The mermaid trend — just like the unicorn trend — can have a tendency to skew a little cheesy or too young (perfect for a kid's room, but in your grown-up apartment, maybe not so much). But there are plenty of options that fit the aesthetic and won't look out of place in your space. It's all in the details, and these Ariel-inspired goods fit the bill.
