Fish scale tile is popping up in all sorts of unexpected spaces, and we couldn’t be more delighted. Taking form in our ever-popular Ogee Drop Tile, this playfully scalloped pattern is beloved by by all. What’s even better? It looks great no matter how you glaze it. Today we’ve collected some of our favorite fish scale and color combos.

Designer extraordinaire Emily Henderson put our Ogee Drop Tile in the spotlight, pairing it with cool Crater Lake. These sea-inspired tile’s most natural color partner is of course blue. However, its shades come in many forms.

This sunken kitchen backsplash’s fish scale tile mosaic seems an unlikely choice for a vintage blue stovetop, but somehow feels just right and brings an element of surprise to this charming kitchen.

Mixing blue and green creates an ethereal ocean effect, adding soft waves of color to this hip and rustic coffee shop.

Green hues add an earthier undertone to this underwater-inspired pattern. We also can’t get enough of the Little Mermaid vibes from this cozy yet lush shower.

The green tile backsplash in this outdoor kitchen is all the lawn this patio needs. Its glossy finish also adds a lustrous contrast to the rustic wood furniture.

A sea of red fish scale tile lends an alluring oriental allure to the mix. Reminiscent of ponds teeming with koi fish, our Ogee Drop Tile in a blend of Tomato Red and Tangerine is vibrant and full of energy.

At the end of the day, you can't go wrong with neutrals. With its playful and effortlessly chic shape, the pattern speaks for itself (plus, you can match it with almost everything).

You can arrange fish scale tile upwards to bring positive energy...

...or downwards to shower your space with waves of calm.

Whichever direction you choose, you can't go wrong.
