I can’t believe how far we’ve come with wall tiles like the orange crocodile skin tile featured above!

But don’t forget about wallpaper for your living spaces too like this deliciously rich croc skin wallpaper in purple.

And both of these wall coverings are part of the biggest trend I’m noticing on walls texture.  Imagine squares of supple leather (or faux), snake/animal skins, silks/wools, grasscloth, bamboo, metallic flake, or 3D effects like crystals but with a twist!  And that twist could be an unexpected color, layering, mixing traditional with contemporary or mixing shiny with dull to create one of a kind looks.

Other hot wallcovering trends include bold graphics, bold colors and classical motifs.
