Get a Monkey Rug for a Quick Tropical Look!
If I say Monkey rug, chances are you'll ask what kind? That's because besides the ubiquitous monkey rugs that you can get for a kid's room, tropical rugs with monkeys on a palm tree are very popular right now.
What makes a kids monkey rug so great? Well, for one, thing, it's unisex. A kids monkey rug can work in both a boy's or a girl's room. You can find a colorful jungle themed monkey area rug that can cover an entire bedroom or playroom. Another type of monkey area rug that is really cute is a smaller throw rug sized monkey rug with a profile (that is, the rug is in the shape of a monkey).
If you want to freshen up a room's look, you won't be able to do it any easier or faster than by getting a monkey area rug. Monkey area rugs can usually be found in jute or cotton, with the monkeys printed on them along with a palm tree or two. This tropical rug look goes a long way in giving a room a bit of British colonial flair. If you're looking for something for cooler weather, KAS Oriental has an colonial area rug featuring monkeys which is 100% wool in petit point. This rug would look great in a day room or sun room that faces a western window.
