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 rare beauty, in our central Christchurch digs

Against all odds, the native Kākāriki have returned from the brink of extinction – not just once, but twice. A spotlight on one of the Canterbury region’s most threatened species, The Kākāriki Wall shows them thriving amongst Mahoe trees, Nikau palms and Tussock Ringlet Butterflies. Thanks to the brilliant Flox for letting them live their best lives at LyLo, forever. Plus, be on the lookout for extra pops of playfulness throughout your stay, like the Miss Lolo wallpaper bringing the Female Pod Rooms to life. You never know what’ll wind up on our walls next…

About the artists


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?
