    Russel Peterson from non-profit design studio Alpha Workshops shows us how to create a stenciled floor cloth, which you can display on the floor or hang as a wall covering. By creating your own motif like Russel's, which was inspired by Alpha Workshops' recent mural for the Humane Society of New York, you can add a personalized element to your home.

A limestone/brick facade helps create the "thermal envelope" that makes this home environmentally friendly. View property.
