Photos from “Perfect Imperfect” by Karen McCartney, Sharyn Cairns and Glen Proebstel (Murdoch Books)Taking a cue from the rugged Tasmanian landscape. This home on Bruny Island belongs to architect John Wardle. He has a passion for collecting — everything from antiques to books, which “he describes as having nothing to do with monetary value and everything to do with authenticity,” and beyond, McCartney says. “Hence, in Bruny Island, where this house, The Shearer’s Quarters, sits on a raggedly beautiful piece of Tasmanian coastline, his preoccupation is with paraphernalia from the apple industry, much of which is housed in sheds on the property,” McCartney says. “The timber from old packing crates, redundant since the collapse of the apple industry in the 1960s, line the walls of the hall and bedrooms. Old books, sourced from antiques shops in Hobart … imbue the space with warmth and color.”
