Stay on the Bright Side

LyLo ain’t no ordinary place to stay. So why should our walls be anything but brilliant? To stand out from the crowd, we tapped into our network of bright, local artists to colour your stay with cheeky nods to native flora and fauna.

Say hi to an Auckland force of nature, in the heart of the CBD.

The Korimako (AKA Bellbird) hadn’t been spotted nearby in over 100 years. But in a story of resilience, they’ve recently returned to Auckland. To mark the occasion and celebrate conservation, renowned aerosol artist Flox took to our entryway walls. Boldly perched amongst native Kotukutuku, Pohutukawa and Puriri botanicals, now two Korimako welcome every LyLo guest with big comeback energy. Once you’ve made yourself at home, you’ll find even more bright spots with made-for-LyLo wallpaper features by the iconic Miss Lolo. If it wasn’t clear from the get-go, LyLo’s no ordinary accommodation.

About the artists

Flox

What happens when fine art meets stencils, aerosol and an affinity for New Zealand taonga? Flox’s mural magic, that’s what. Putting her stamp on the country’s inner cityscapes since 2003, Flox has transformed countless grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world. How lucky are we to have her works across all New Zealand LyLo locations?

Miss Lolo

With a promise of ‘no more beige’, celebrity fashion stylist Tamzyn Adding escaped the epidemic of dull design in 2013. From her rage against beige emerged the explosion of colour we now know as Miss Lolo – fabrics and wallpapers that add a sense of aesthetic adventure to like-minded places, like LyLos throughout New Zealand.
