Eva maintained the equilibrium of her intellect and love of beauty by lecturing Information Technology part-time at Kensington & Chelsea College after which she then wrote and created a successful on-line teaching course.

In 2004, Eva followed her entrepreneurial instinct and decided to share the beauty secrets and well-being insights she had gathered on her showbiz journey and throughout her life and travels. She formulated and launched the Monochrome Body and Soul brand. Eva’s innovative concept had the unique ambition of providing beauty treatments for the myriad shades of skin created by Mother Nature. Monochrome’s mission was to cater to the cosmetic and holistic needs of the darkest ebony skins to the fairest porcelain complexions.
This ahead of the market musing took physical form as an exclusive spa and retail in the prestigious Duke of York Square development on the internationally renowned Kings Road, Chelsea.

In 2007, Monochrome relocated to a secluded oasis in Holland Park and evolved into an ultra-exclusive boutique spa set within a private town house. Monochrome responded to the wishes of its clientele and shortly established itself as a metropolitan pampering powerhouse in the convenient and accessible location of South Kensington.
