Lesli DeVito of Greenwood, Va., combined yard sale finds, store-bought staples and lots of color to make a sleepover-ready room for her teenage daughter, Phoebe. Phoebe’s room was the judges’ favorite in the 2012 Kid’s Room Contest.
Phoebe DeVito's bedroom won The Washington Post Kid's Room Contest. For her 13th birthday, DeVito asked her mom, Lesli, to redecorate her bedroom on the condition that she not include any chocolate brown. While Phoebe was away on a class trip to Virginia’s Wallops Island, Lesli got to work. She painted three of the walls white and included a navy accent wall and a light pink ceiling strip. Yellow, navy and pink are Phoebe's favorite colors. Norm Shafer/For The Washington Post
