Scales patterns – not just for your bathroom

Fish scales arrange beautifully in different directions – from top to bottom, round or right to left, and thus create a lovely effect on home accessories. Their beauty lies in the fact that they fit perfectly into any home interior and add a touch of freshness to it.

Homemade fish in pastel colours

Pastel colours are great for medium size pillows for any interior. Scales on a fish-shaped pillow will look brilliant on any bed or sofa.

Most of us like to make sure the pillow or bedspread is soft and mellow. In this case, the best choices are single jersey or interlock cotton – durable fabrics that are also soft. Additionally, they are easy to work with and sewing them requires little effort.

Monochromatic fish blankets

Unicoloured scales with gently emphasised contours are a good option for interiors with more distinctive individual accents, for example, a darker table against light-coloured walls. In such an interior, monochromatic scales will look fantastic on larger accessories, such as a blanket, a pillow or a translucent throw for a dresser. Fabrics that will suit this type of accessories are voile, which is flowing and does not deform on furniture, cotton interlock – perfect for a soft blanket, satin – for a pillowcase or a sofa spread.

Other fish – other arrangements and shapes

Scales are usually semicircular and even, but not always. They are often arranged in an S-shape or interlaced with a string that resembles pearls. Some are arranged smoothly and thus imitate the flow of water. They will look beautiful on large accessories such as a laundry basket or curtains in tall windows. With such big decorative elements, durable and stiffer fabrics such as gabardine or panama will be brilliant. They will also add some elegance to the room – higher grammature fabrics will create impressive folds.

Monochromatic scales combined with some other colour provide an original effect and fit into interiors.

Fish scales are one of the most original decorative motifs for the house, so pillows, cases, seats or blankets made with the DIY technique will also be excellent gifts for enthusiasts of fishkeeping.
