An all-white in­te­rior (in­clud­ing the floors), com­bined with the im­per­fect lines of the tim­ber and rus­tic cab­i­netry, give Monique’s home its beachy charm. But she also adds so much per­son­al­ity through the hun­dreds of beau­ti­ful and in­trigu­ing bowls, trin­kets, vases and arte­facts she col­lects. And they’re not al­ways bought. “I love com­ing home from the beach with drift­wood and cut­tle­fish to use as dec­o­ra­tion,” Monique says. Walk­ing around her home is like go­ing on a trea­sure hunt.

But hotch­potch it’s not. The soft, muted colours – from neu­trals and nat­u­rals to shades of the ocean – tie it all to­gether beau­ti­fully to cre­ate a home that oozes a chilled hol­i­day vibe from ev­ery nook and cranny. Tex­ture from fluffy throws, fuzzy cush­ions and nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, such as cane and rope, com­plete the lovely laid-back look.

In and out Tex­ture and colour head out­side for al­fresco style.
