In a world that all too often strives for perfection, it is wonderful to find a book that celebrates the opposite. Perfect Imperfect: The Beauty of Accident, Age and Patina, by leading Australian design writer Karen McCartney visits homes whose owners, consciously or unconsciously, value the journey of collating individual objects rather than focusing on the outcome. The book is based around the ancient Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, or impermanence. Be sure to read our fascinating story.

Plus, this week we discover photographer Ari Seth Cohen's new follow-up to Advanced Style, and learn a few lessons from fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu.

And Jesse Mulligan visits Auckland's first Nepalese restaurant Everest Dine in Parnell, which he leaves pleasantly surprised.
