Last week, we featured DC-themed home decor from our house tour of Joe's Art-Deco Loft and Garden. We asked readers to submit their own DC decor projects and received this fantastic project from an AT Chicago reader who is originally from DC. To make his wall art, our native DCer downloaded a panoramic view of DC from the 1920s, which included his family's bakery that was labeled as a landmark on the map...

The image was downloaded from the website of DCVote.org into Photoshop, split into 9 sections, and then imported into iPhoto. The prints were ordered from Apple's print service and taken to a local framer who mounted them on 1" thick MDF and applied a UV coating. The project cost around $450 total.

Do you have DC-themed home decor? If so, please post photos in our flickr group "Apartment Therapy DC" or email your pics with DC DECOR in the subject line to: dc(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com.
