The readers’ choice

With 4,160 votes, Mary Derderian of Arlington won our readers’ choice award for her 6-year-old son Clay’s bedroom. We love the varied shades of blue and green paint paired with the maps and nautical decor. Check back next week for more photos and to find out how Mary’s husband, James, decoupaged the dresser using maps he found in a neighborhood trash bin.
