Détails: Présentation de l'éditeur CELEBRATE THE PERFECT BEAUTY OF THE IMPERFECTIf you have read The House that Pinterest Built, Styled, Poetry of Place or Ray Booth Evocative Interiors, you're going to love Perfect Imperfect.Wabi-sabi and new creative interior design expressions: Perfect Imperfect is a stunning collection of homes and studios of creatives from all over the world, with thought-provoking text by Karen McCartney and stunning visuals by Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel. Perfect Imperfecttakes as its founding principle the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Wabi-Sabi advocates 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, rethinking how to use space and accommodating the natural world.Creating a new interior design vocabulary: As the collaborative process for creating Perfect Imperfect involved working across continents, the authors created a list of words and phrases that define how to curate the work they include in their stunning book. Their new interior design and interior decorating vocabulary includes terms such as mutability, irregularity, unfinished and incomplete, void, the effects of accident, unpretentious, simplicity, contrasts, and Leonard Koren's idea that 'beauty can be coaxed out of ugliness'.The new words and phrases introduced by the authors define the book's visual sections:Spirit of NatureStrange BeautyMark of HandDeep ShadowWeathering & DecayAnd, Incomplete and IrregularA beautiful, inspirational decorative book: Perfect Imperfect is a celebration of accident, curation, collection, hesitation, collaboration, reuse, reimagining and true originality. It explores an established aesthetic in a new way and embraces current design objects alongside well-worn ones; featuring interior settings that mix comfort, design and an off-beat beauty. Revue de presse Homes with a wellworn, off-beat beauty, filled with hand-crafted objects, are at the heart of Karen McCartneys new book,. Featuring striking photographs by Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel, it explores homes where character and comfort are created in unexpected ways, using makeshift decoration and imaginative recycling. Out 5 May. --Elle Decoration, May 2016Ever since I designed the Rough Luxe hotel in London in 2007, I've been fascinated by the Japanese approach to aesthetics that accepts imperfections; wabi-sabi. The only material I could find in English was a book by Leonard Koren published in 1994. Nothing since, until now, to my delight, a book by Karen McCartney with beautiful photography by Sharyn Cairns and styling by Glen Proebstel. Wabi-sabi is more a philosophy than purely an aesthetic; it espouses the splendour of accidents of life and nature and the pure beauty of imperfection forged by the erosion of time. The blend of the wabi-sabi philosophy with twenty-first century living is illustrated with stunning photography of objects, architecture, interiors and creative people, with a pertinent text that includes interviews with ceramicist Nicola Tassie and sculptor Alison Coates. I have always said perfection does not exist: only the beauty of imperfection is real and authentic. The publication is more than a beautiful book; it's a survey and a reference. The content is an inspiration that will influence the next decade of western design. --House & GardenDecay is fashionable. Perfect Imperfect is a celebration of patina, weathering, irregularity, accidents and the idea that 'beauty can be coaxed out of ugliness'. It's about the Japanese principle of wabi-sabi, which advocates the beauty found in imperfection. There's hope for all of us and our dishevelled homes. --Sunday Times Home Biographie de l'auteur Karen McCartney has a wealth of experience in the areas of interior design, art and architecture.
