From the looks of it, you'd never guess this beautiful home was a green energy experiment! Rick Milburn of PassivWorks spent 18 months retrofitting the 1960-built Sonoma, California home to be ultra energy-efficient. (It was actually the first retrofit passive project in the US–read all the details here!) What I love most, of course, is the light and breezy color scheme by Jann Blazona Interior Design. Everything is so open and airy! Can't get enough of the turquoise tile and built-ins, not to mention fab laundry room!! Read all about the home and see more photos by Ned Bonzi right over here!
