Description: *Australian* An Interior design book that embodies a philosophy of thoughtfulness and creativity in living. All three authors (writer Karen McCartney, photographer Sharyn Cairns and stylist Glen Probstel) have significant profiles and extensive connections in international and Australian design and media. The book features residences and creative studioes in Australia, the USA and Europe, whose owners are leaders and innovators in their chosen fields in the arts, interior design, architecture and media. The authors have gained access to many locations previously unpublished in magazines or books. Perfect Imperfect takes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, advocating the beauty to be found in imperfection, impermanence and the authentic. Importantly, this is done without losing sight of the benefits of living in the 21st century, where designers are merging digital technology with the handmade to produce items that combine the best of both worlds...This inspirational book, with thought-provoking text by Karen McCartney and stunning visuals by Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel, is a celebration of accident, curation, collection, hesitation, collaboration, reuse, reimagining and true originality...Perfect Imperfect explores an established aesthetic in a new way, as illustrated by the homes and studios of international and Australian creatives. It embraces current design objects alongside well-worn ones, and features interior settings that mix comfort, design and an offbeat beauty...
