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.
