Tex­ture is a fun­da­men­tal el­e­ment of Monique’s styling process, as shown in the kitchen. A va­ri­ety of sur­faces and fin­ishes keeps this white, bright space warm and invit­ing. It starts with the cab­i­netry. “The join­ery is all cus­tom­made, and no cup­board is the same as an­other,” she says. “The is­land bench­top is teak, the back bench is stain­less steel.” Over­head, dou­ble-milled ex­posed tim­ber beams add in­ter­est to the floor-to-ceil­ing white colour pal­ette, and the shelves are filled with books and ce­ram­ics.

Sus­pended rus­tic tim­ber lad­der keeps pots and pans handy. KITCHEN Ce­ram­ics on dis­play “What started as a col­lec­tion of espresso cups soon grew into an ad­dic­tion!” says Monique.
