This Shabby Chic-Rustic Café in Tagaytay Can Inspire You to Redecorate
Make the most of your next Tagaytay trip
Commercial establishments like restaurants, coffee shops, and dessert places are starting to decorate and style their spaces with the right mix of furniture and perfect color palette. If you ask us, these elements can make the space more inviting and ideal for get-togethers. If you're thinking of planning a vacation soon and taking on a renovation project in the coming months, you can accomplish both by visiting the newest branch of Bag of Beans at Twin Lakes, Tagaytay. The cozy cafe features a Shabby Chic meets Rustic theme that makes customers feel right at home.
With the help of Joel Salazar and Paul Baes of Lucina Home, the space was transformed into a homey nook that's perfect for a relaxing quiet time with friends or with a good book! Here are four things that we loved in the place that you can also consider when working on your own home:
The contrast of colors
“Kailangan muted colors—walang primaries, walang brights, walang black,” says Joel. Sticking to these colors will allow you to pull-off the soft and feminine look for your space. Also, shades like rose pink, teal, and turquoise look perfect against wooden finishes! Paul recommends the use of “browns, grays, and off-whites. With those three, captured mo na yung look.”
The unique country-style furniture
“We like the use of recycled wood—mga ninety percent—from old houses. Nag-stick kami sa country pieces, and we made sure na comfortable yung pieces,” Joel adds, to which Paul says, “And pieces that would reflect something from the past.”

The charming accessories
Picking the right accessories for a shabby-chic home is essential because these pieces complete the entire look of the space. If you’re planning to go for this style, be sure that you add accessories in distressed white finishes or vintage ceramic ware with floral prints.
Bag of Beans Tagaytay is located at Twin Lakes, Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway, Alfonso Cavite.
