From coffee table moments to vintage vignettes, see how Dylan transforms a Sea Point apartment

Best known for their vibrant  gallery space in Cape Town, the commercial arm of Studio Dylan Thomaz can also be hired to revamp your interior space. DECO takes a look at a recent project – a coastal Sea Point apartment revived in a signature style.

Studio Dylan Thomaz is a platform founded by Dylan Thomaz as a manifestation of his passion to create well-curated and inspiring spaces. For Dylan, the curation process creates a journey that begins with an idea and ends with an inspired experience that brings an abundance of happiness. This can manifest itself in your home, your brand, your store or your space.

Dylan’s studio team prides themselves on delivering excellence in the field of design curation, including the planning and creating of creative concepts and campaigns, seasonal looks and directives, visual merchandising and product launches.

There isn’t a single item in my own home that doesn’t have a story behind it.  It is important to me. The story matters and this inspires me everyday.

Dylan is an independent curator who has years of experience in the retail, interior design and marketing industries. He is passionate about the story behind the pieces curated for a space, as well as how the whole space comes together in one narrative. Having been formally trained in interior design, he has previously lead the visual merchandising division for one of Africa’s leading homeware companies, as well as working for other international retailers. 

I believe your space should tell the story of who you are. What you love most, collected and saved up for… All your objects, finds and hand-me-downs spelling out who you are in the world, all curated in a unique way.

Studio Dylan Thomaz’s interior design services live this philosophy. As an example of what Dylan and his team can achieve, he shared with DECO a few snaps from an apartment he worked on in Sea Point – an ocean-facing apartment that was given a signature look.

With a view over the Atlantic Ocean, this three bedroom apartment had acres of natural potential, which Dylan enhanced with a neutral palette, key furniture pieces and Dylan’s signature storytelling throughout, with the aim of creating a stylish home.
