This season, serpentine shapes are slithering their way from the fashion world into home decorating. So move over jewelry design, shoes, handbags and belts, and bring the undulating curves of a snake  into your home decor. Here are a few tips on how to “up the ante” by using this fanciful reptile.

First, find a new area rug which features looping, scaly coils on a dark gray background to add underneath your coffee table. But don’t stop there as this will say, I like DRAMA in any room you add it to.

Next, find a “snakeskin” fabric, like the black and white one pictured here, and add this in a small amount for the most dramatic effect.

Do you dare to show off your creativity with a snakeskin seat? Of course you do! So take a clue from the photograph above and reupholster that old stool in your bathroom. Just one small “coat” of the snakeskin-style will add  jet-set glamour to your entire room.
