What are Raw Styles?

Raw interiors are designed to awaken your senses and show off the authenticity and truth of a space. Rustic, organic forms and original features are exposed and celebrated – not covered up or hidden.  Natural materials such as stone, wood and leather bring a crucial, imperfect vibe and aged or distressed items also work well. Original architectural features like trusses, ceilings, brickwork, concrete flooring are emphasized and bring about an unfinished, ethical style of beauty. Interesting pieces of handcrafted, re-purposed or salvaged furniture and accessories are also widely used in Raw interiors.

The Base Palette

The colours forming the basis of any Raw palette should allow the exposed, natural elements to shine through. Creamy whites, greys, black and other neutral tones deliver warmth and welcome. And just as important as colour, unrefined, grained timbers and other pared back materials keep the look grounded and authentic, an essential element of the Raw style. Toned timbers – both light and dark – bring drama and elegance
