Decorative wall finish. There are many options. For example, you can use wallpaper with a pattern that simulates the skin of reptiles or color of wild animals. You can combine the wallpaper using plain plaster-like one with textured one, simulating exotic leather. And you can just paint the walls in warm or even white color. To add some brightness, you can make a curb that has African ornament or it may simply be of a paper or painted in different colors. By the way, the walls can be decorated with painted silhouettes of animals. Also, as an option, you can add nobility to the walls through a grid of thin cracks, imitating African soil which is cracked by the drought. You can do this by using two paint colors. One of them would be accentual and the other would be dominant. You will also need a Craquelure special lacquer and proficiency in cracuele technique and skills which are performed on the plaster and paint. In addition, the use of plaster is another option walls. Even better, plaster artificially “wear”. Sometimes part of the walls are lined with African fabric patterns and, if it's bathroom or kitchen, the wall mosaic or tiles with imitation reptile skin texture would be perfect.
