We're just getting back into the swing after returning from New York and catching up with the weekend's Chron. Better late then never, here's the best of the weekend's reads: At home with Kathryn Hall: An indoor-outdoor space on a Napa vineyard (pictured above) has 43 pairs of French doors and art and views to die for. Renters who remodel: Is stripping and replacing those ugly tiles in your rental a worthwhile investment in your happiness? Anh-Minh interviews some local folks who prove it is. AROUND THE HOUSE: Susan shops for summer and chooses inexpensive outdoor Moroccan-style lights from West Elm, Quik Shade's portable canopies, Town Toiles' SF collection (blogged here), and the new Insta-flex2 air bed for visitors. Build new or retrofit?: Philip S. Wenz explains why building a green home from scratch is always more costly (to the environment) than a green retrofit to an existing home.
