Easy, Breezy Greenies: An Energy Star Home in New York

Going green is sumptuous and simple in this suburban New York home that emits almost no carbon.

The Arts and Crafts-style exterior features stucco and local cedar. The Nagins chose exterior colors to match the home’s natural surroundings. “We literally picked up a handful of dirt and gave it to the stucco company to match the color,” Paul says. The green and dark brown mirror the area’s trees.
