Delectable Duet: Perfection + Imperfection
If contrast can highlight the features of opposites,
then perfection and imperfection must be a
Delectable Duet match made in heaven.
The elegant sweep of a lustrous dress,
against the faded glory of a decaying interior,
accentuates the inherent beauty of each.
Rough bark with surface imperfections,
against perfectly sanded and polished timber.
A masonry brick wall, part rendered & half painted,
against neatly clipped topiary and raked gravel.
Glossy & gleaming new chairs,
against a crooked & cracked rustic table of rough timber.
Perfectly neat upholstery,
an immaculately pristine cushion
+ ordered bowls of fruit,
against peeling paint on the radiator,
and rust on the bench.
So, to see the beauty in perfection,
sometimes you have to add a little imperfection,
to create a Delectable Duet.
Do you agree?

As a post note, this post was published on Thursday, just before
Blogger went down. So to all my lovely friends who posted
wonderful comments that day ~ they are all lost! Tragic!
So I have copied them here, so you can read them IN the post,
instead of IN the comments. Savvy?

Love specially that brick wall part rendered & half painted, we do this a lot here in Brasil.
Love the contrast between opposites.
Thank you for your always lovely comments on our blog, we love to read them.
Oh, i loved this! I love mixing the two- i think it adds depth to the look of a space-yes, the beauty in imperfection. Great post! XX
It makes it much more interesting when we allow a bit of imperfection in our lives. It makes it more real. gorgeous images....

Very inspirational! I am finding out that the imperfect seems to be an essential element in good French design. Matchy matchy is not where it is at here at all. ;)
