Though animal prints have been trending since spring, the latest designs are taking a much scalier turn. Decor accents with patterns inspired by reptile skin are popping up all over the marketplace, providing designers with a dash of graphic drama that won’t overpower a pared-down palette. From crocodile-esque wallcoverings to faux snakeskin framed mirrors, Business of Home presents six pieces to try in your next project.
