Mylo Hotel—short for My Love—is a retro mid-century hotel on the outskirts of San Francisco. Inspired by San Francisco’s hippie counterculture of the 1960’s, the design is in perfect synchronicity with the original bones of the building and evokes an effortlessly hip California vibe with breezy bohemian flavor.
With a fun 1960’s retro façade and large sun-filled guest rooms and bathrooms, our design approach was clear! We peeled away layers of unnecessary finishes and superfluous design to unveil simple, fresh, clean, and modern rooms. Accented by a stylish and refined palette of crisp white, midnight blue, and sunny yellow, the rooms are simultaneously sophisticated and comfortable.
The Details Matter
Wanting to celebrate and maintain vestiges of the hotel’s past, we created custom modern interpretations of vintage relics such as the rattan swag pendant and cane headboard. A few minimal but meaningful insertions were introduced to further relate the story and experience of the hotel, including framed black and white photographs depicting the hippie movement in the Haight-Ashbury and vintage ceramics adorning the shelves of kitchenettes found in several of the guest rooms.
We chose an energetic teal Marmoleum flooring that was an exact match to original linoleum uncovered during the demolition of part of the hotel. 6x6 cream square tiles in the bathrooms, walnut accented casegoods, and painted wood paneled “wall closets” add warmth and texture.
Enjoy your stay
Mylo Hotel is a unique addition to the Economy Hotel market, with its distinctive balance of natural elegance and relaxed décor that invites a comfortable and carefree stay that would appeal to any free-thinking, modern-day bohemian.
