My 12-year-old daughter wants her room to have a jungle feel. We bought a cheetah print comforter with a matching sham and bed skirt. We are thinking about painting her room a light or medium beige or tope and then rag painting some greens onto that. Keep in mind that the carpet is a soft green though, so I don't want it to look tacky.

Also, she wants some fake vines painted on the wall to look like they are crawling up the corner of her room. Then she wants the vines to branch out onto shelves where she will put her collection of monkeys. Her room also has a vaulted ceiling. She loves this idea, but is afraid her friends will think it's too childish. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated -- I would love to get some ideas on furniture, colors and pictures. -iVillager nrsmommy2000
