Malibu is known for many things, but its beautiful beaches and relaxed, coastal aesthetic are at the top of the list. So it should come as no surprise that when The Surfrider Malibu opened last year with its bright spaces and modern-meets-throwback aesthetic, people went nuts for it. The suites are gorgeous and the offerings are luxurious, but the place itself still has that old school California roadside motel vibe.
We’re constantly inspired when we walk through the doors here, and thought you might be interested in recreating the look of the Surfrider lounge space in your very own home. Here always to help us find the goodies to complete the look, Chairish is providing us with tons of inspiration below.

“Déjà Vu” Oversized Original Black and White Drawing
The high-contrast black line drawings on the walls at Surfrider add a ton of character to the bright, white walls. To achieve a similar look, a collection of oversized black and white drawings should do the trick. Try this original drawing by Erik Sulander.
Modernist Abstracted Figure in Graphite, 20th Century
Known well around San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood, artist Michael di Cosola (1929-2010) created psychedelic, surrealist portraits and abstractions. This original piece in graphite on paper is a shining example, and one that embraces that high contrast look you’re going for.
This small African Senufo milk stool would look gorgeous with a tall vase filled with greenery or potted plant placed on top. A glimpse at excellent craftsmanship, this stool is carved from just one piece of wood.
