Ralph Lauren does produce nice texture paints, but make sure you really like the look because removing texture can be a nightmare! Try a large sample on a piece of cardboard ot plywood first.

Also kids love to pick at texture!

Default Texture

A few years ago I painted a two story family Rm with the Ralph Luran River Rock. A couple years had passed and the people called me up and said they would really like to wallpaper. I was amazed how smooth I was able to get the walls. The texture was a little tough to get off but more messy than anything.

Depends on what kind of texture you want - venetian plaster is easily enough made - has anyone ever tried the faux leather finish on walls and furniture that Frank used on Trading Spaces, with torn up garbage bags and a lacquer?
