    I was in the market for new bed sheets and I saw this on one of my searches.

    Guess who will be sleeping in mer scales? There is a pink one, but the colors looked really pale and washed out.

    When it arrives, I'll get plain colored sheets and pillow case to match.

    Hey everyone! I'm back until whenever I disappear again. I just wanted to give you guys an update on the status of my mermaid/coastal/ ocean themed home.

    Its going pretty well! The bedroom and living room is pretty much done. There's still some things I have to add to the foyer and washrooms until I feel comfortable showing but I'll share a few pics of what I have now.

    I can't wait to see it SeaGlass! We moved earlier this year but I was too busy to work on my room design. My plan is for it to be like a pirate captain's room / a mermaid grotto or something like that. I am also super inspired by Tia Dalma's house decor in Pirates of the Caribbean - I mainly like all of the jars hanging from her ceiling. Right now it is pretty plain except for a wooden bowl in the corner filled with sequin shells and mermaid jewelry. I also have an old child's ski propped against the wall that I found buried in the sand on the beach. I like how old it looks haha. We got some wooden palettes for free and I am going to put them on my wall somewhere and somehow. I will have to figure out what I want to do with those.

    Thats really creative alea!! Maybe you can use the glass jars and turn them into a light fixture for the dining room or kitchen? That seems to be a popular trend. And the skis as a piece of art on one of your bare walls in the dining room as a feature piece?

    excuse the large images.

    So the bedroom i've kept it pretty simple. except for the narwal hanging over the bed. i got that at whitefauxtaxidermy.com. they have a bunch of resin taxidermy heads and a lot of style options.
    The pictures above the bed and the coral ottoman are from Home Sense. The bed frame, side tables, lantern, and light are from Ikea. Pillows and bedsheets were wedding gifts. The letters were DIYed by me. Cute water drop humidifier was from babies 'R' us (fun fact, i like to shop in the kids/babies section of any stores because they have all the cute nautical/sea stuff there.)

    This is the hallway that i sorta made into my own gallery full of movie stills. the second image is a close up of each image. my hallway was super empty before. you'll notice it's all from movies that have at least something to do with the ocean or the water. i tried to pick the most simple images with a focal point.
    at the end of the hallway is a small mirror. i havent hung the picture or the mirror up yet because i'm thinking of adding a shadowbox with my mermaid wedding gown and i dont want to commit to anything yet.

    The pillow thing I'm still debating on. I have sensitive skin and lie on pillows a lot so I don't think mermaid pillows are for me lol! I am eyeing a few cushions for the patio though. The bedroom is pretty much done. the next project I'm gonna tackle is the walk in closet where most of my mermaid gear and clothes and accessories are hiding.

    I wouldn't sleep on my mermaid pillow I think they are better for decoration and... let's be honest, entertainment.

    This blog post has a few ideas on how you can use them for decor.

    Mermaid Pillows

    Let me know what you think!

    Believe me when I say I've been through it :P I just prefer that my decorative pillows be functional and comfy as well!

    we have pier one imports and home sense in Canada which has a lot of decorative and comfy coastal/ mermaidish pillows but I'm waiting until they go on sale

    I recently redecorated my room to make it mermaid themed. I think the wall decals are my favorite.

    Check these out! Mermaid mugs!

    They might be fun as some decor... or on a cold night.

    Let me know if I missed any that would look good on a shelf.
