Not just for bathrooms, fishy prints are adorning everything from linen lampshades to ceramic tableware this season. Country Homes & Interiors explore the trend…

New nautical
For an original twist on a nautical theme, create a feature wall with beautiful hand-drawn wallpaper. Designer, Emma-Jane Sowerby, takes her inspiration from time spent at her holiday home in the Welsh countryside, just a stone’s throw away from gorgeous coastline. £185, Snuugle.


Fishy love

Kissing mackerels… why not?! Nicole Phillips’ lighthearted take on a coastal theme has us charmed. Her distinctive watercolour artwork and a blue velvet trim bring a touch of elegance to this otherwise playful cushion – a fun finishing touch to sofas and beds. £65,
Nicole Phillips.

Swimmingly Scandi
Simple and sweet, the Scandi design on Sieni’s ‘Fishie on a Dishie’ collection for the National Trust has been sponge applied for a rustic look. These stackable dip pots are a summer dining essential, perfect for sharing suppers with friends and family. £10 for a set of three, The National Trust.

Catch of the day
Hand-drawn salmon, trout and hand tied flies adorn this linen fabric, appealing to anglers and fish-lovers alike – we love the bright teal hue! Create curtains, blinds and cushions for a fun pop of colour in any room. Fisherman’s friend, £45, Katie Mosa.

Down to the river
There’s no doubt about it, fun fish prints work wonderfully in bathrooms. Brighten up yours with these cheery towels. Winding streams and rivers surround Cath Kidston’s rural Cotswold home; this colourful print is a nod to the freshwater life that can be seen swimming in them.
Prices start from £6, Cath Kidston.
