into a 'white island' home and a shabby-chic-shop.
Everything that matters to her is simplicity and the non-colour white.
„This is Monica“, she says!
In her unusual shabby chic home one is amazed by the stringent simplicity of whites.
It is not cozy not cold either, it is tranquil and really extraordinary. All in white.
The light during the seasons creates the shades of white.
To pay attention to this while decorating or painting or arranging is Monica's passion.
Many still life arrangements, no mess.
Shabby chic, antiques, quirky ﬁnds.
From warm ivory, to rose shades, to chalk white or to blueish or greyish whites, Monica loves this palette!
Monica often ﬁnds lovely antiques, quirky pieces on Danish or Swedish ﬂee markets.
Her objects have to be tarnished, they are lovely things that should show their age.
She allows silver candleholders and white tiles to show their shine and glass vases and chandeliers to show their sparkle.
All these objects one ﬁnds besides tins of colours in her tiny shop or in the conservatory next door.
Monica paints herself ladders, chairs, trays or whatever she ﬁnds.
Being creative and decisive, she has no problem putting collections together for example of books,
salt shakers and soup tureens.
