6 scaly designs for a touch of texture

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.

Don’t let the bold style of the Vibrations Big Croco Métal wallpaper by Élitis fool you—it’s a lot tamer than it looks. Though it mimics the skin of a wild crocodile, it’s constructed of ultradurable vinyl.
