On trend: creating the ‘raw’ look

I’ve written here before about trends. Some are short lived, they come and go or they’re simply not worth pursuing for other reasons – I mean, carpets in bathrooms used to be a trend and that’s certainly not one I would advise anyone to follow. Then there are the ones that seem to have been built on something different.
