Monica van der Berg was tired of the disused wine rack in the alcove at the end of the passageway in her Protea Valley home. She wanted to create a space that was useful and attractive, so she installed wallpaper and wooden shelves with brackets that she jazzed up with metallic paint.
Monica regularly changes her display of items to keep the look fresh and a few copper-coloured hooks on the wall are a practical addition. “This space is right next to the door leading to the garage, so we like to store the kids’ outing stuff here – that way, they can just grab and go! It’s a very useful, versatile space and it’s lovely to look at too!” Monica says.
