Sigh. The Chron had promising headlines yesterday - a story on revisting a kitchen remodel and another on understanding art print technologues -- but most didn't quite hit the mark.

The ones that did: Laura Thomas' Hot Stuff and Pam Peirce's gardening advice. Highlights after the jump.

  • IF IT AIN'T BROKE: Susan Fornoff visits an Oakland kitchen on the 25th anniversary of its remodel to see which aspects have stood the test of time. We were a disappointed that the Chron chose the kitchen of somene who self-describes as "not an avid cook."

  • Remembering John Hutton: An obit from Zahid Sardar for a furniture designer who played an important role in the SF Design scene.

  • Understanding the world of prints: We're glad the Chron thought to provide a guide to the different types of art prints one can buy these days, but with coverage of just monoprints, giclées, and color copies writer Karen Leland has barely skimmed the surface.

  • Large living room great for entertaining: Risë Krag lays out a living room for all ages...but then styles it for the grandparents only.

  • HOT STUFF: Laura Thomas' finds this week include Macy's retailing of nity baskets woven by Rwandan women for the Rwanda Path to Peace project, and Spark, a new source for contemporary gas fireplaces.

  • Fuchsia identification is an iffy pursuit: Pam Peirce fields questions about salvaging gall mite-damaged fuchsia plants and getting flowering cacti to bloom.
