All in all, beautiful home, love Amy Alper's work. Read some comments about having a french door and no window in the master bedroom, and the architect saying the owners were aware and decided to go with just the doors. We too once had just sliding doors in our bedroom and had the same issue about not being able to leave them open for ventilation at night. We are just completing a major remodel in Napa valley, small bedrooms, decided to go with a single french door and one longer operable window. not as elegant looking as double doors, but suits our lifestyle more.

I too think solving practical issues, how you want to use the space and feel comfortable, is an important part of the decision, it is not just about "the look". Enjoy your new space and nighttime breeze!
