When the owners of Ellerslie hairdressing salon Zurri looked to open a second salon in Mt Eden they asked Yellowfox to create the interiors, with project management by Waller Projects. Our approach was to give the space light, creative aesthetic with an element of glamour – retro industrial with a touch of New York loft.

We felt this was an ideal look for Mt Eden Village, and we combined several elements to achieve it. For an industrial accent, raw concrete floor were joined with existing timber floors using industrial steel treadplate. Bevelled mirrors mounted on steeltubing with industrial fittings also contributed. The sense of glam chic starts right at the salon entry – the owners decided to repeat a chainlink screen by Chain Craft that features in the other salon, complete with Zurri branding.

Lava Cosmic glass tiles from the Tile Warehouse bring a touch of luxury to the wash bays while the anaglypta wallpaper by Aspiring Walls offers texture to the walls and also pays homage to the era of the building and the Mt Eden area.
