What a Croc!

If there's one timeless home and fashion accessory we love, it's mock croc. It comes in a pleothora of colors, and if done right (with real leather, please), looks expensive without costing an arm and a leg. All of us probably have a favorite mock croc fashion accessory,such as a belt or a purse (or lucky people may have the real deal). But we love mock croc for infusing the same type of glamour into your home as it can for your wardrobe.

It's hard to tell, but in the photo below, those divine x-benches are mock croc.

This Graham and Green Mock Croc Desk has three of my favorite things - trestle legs, chrome, and croc.

Take your croc obsession a step further by incorporating it onto your walls or tiles. The result is divine! This look works for a western home, but honestly, can't you see that going in a library or foyer?



The croc panel in this bathroom give it a little special something.



The croc bedroom is definitely a masculine look, but I love the drama it creates. Again, I'd love this for a library or a foyer. Or maybe for a bedroom in a lighter color?

If you're looking to add a little croc to your life, try the Jonathan Adler Preston Cocktail Table- he also makes a side table and console table as part of this line. We love the Asian lines of this piece.




Of course, Dransfield & Ross are essentially "the croc people"- their array of moc croc home accessories is unparalleled. These Croc tables are actually very well priced. And you know I am a sucker for nailhead trim!



For croc lovers on a budget, try something small & chic like this Dransfield & Ross Tray.



Or at an even more unbeatable price, we are loving Z Gallerie's offerings- the Z Gallerie Nailhead Tray and the Everglades Round Tray.

Forget the kiddos, I'd love to put this Croc toy box from Neiman Marcus in my own room!




These Faux Croc Platinum Placemats from Z Gallerie would look glamorous at your next holiday party.

I have a set of Kim Seybert moc croc placemats I bought a year ago that I just love. I get so many compliments on them whenever I put them out. I love those Dransfield and Ross nailhead trim tables, too!

There is a restaurant here called M5 that has gorgeous chocolate brown croc walls in the bathrooms. The food isn't my favorite, but the amazing bathroom walls make it worth a dinner!

Fab and so chic - wouldn't have thought of croc. Love the orange-y wallpaper and the silver accessories!
