Surf Shack Vibes

In each edition of The Spoiled Queen Magazine, reorient selects a favourite interior scene and breaks down the look to give you the Inside Story. In The Portugal Issue, the Boutik Cafe & Surf Shack (see pgs. 100-103) is just too good to miss!

This space is characterised by natural materials and warm colours. Shades of brown and beige from bamboo (rattan) furniture, wood tabletops are paired with tan and brown leather chairs. These natural materials are complimented with many green leafed plants and green painted walls which bring a natural verdant feeling. Contrasted with a much darker toned timber floor, the lighter coloured furniture and plants ‘pop-out’ visually. The lighting, ceiling and brick wall give a touch of Industrial factory aesthetic, which contrasts with the natural Native handmade style of the furniture.

furniture selection

Colours – Warm. Beige, tan, brown & greens.

Materials – Natural woods, rattan (bamboo), leather, native handmade fabrics.

Styles – Eco-chic, Industrial & Native* styles.

*Native style is more commonly referred to as ‘Ethno’ style, although the use of this word is a misnomer.

The natural materials, warm colours and greenery combo create a vibrant yet calm atmosphere. You can already smell the coffee beans and freshly baked Portuguese egg tarts! We wish we could go there to experience it all for ourselves! Until the travel restrictions are lifted – why not bring some surf shack vibes in your home instead?
