Some places are so good that you have to revisit them. We returned to this extraordinary house which has been given a completely new look by interior designer Dylan Thomaz.

This home could easily be a villa along the Spanish or Italian Coast, with its confident, black and white shuttered exterior. Until you notice the giant, Cape granite boulder it’s built against and then the rustic but elegant klompie brick paving and the signature style of Dylan’s work.

The floors were originally going to be cement screed, until the client decided they’d far rather go with dark, hand-made tiles. It’s the kind of in-the-moment decision which comes from living in the place as the renovation evolves.

The black of the floors is echoed in aluminium shutters, combining with the gold, white and black in the kitchen - for a hint of North African style. While around the corner, light wood, desert sand and burnished orange colours welcome the sunrise, every morning.

Once the sun sets, interest moves to the centre of the house where the timber is more red, light bounces off the reflective décor and these bollard-like cushions are a tribute to the boulder outside.
For anyone passing by, this iconic house in Clifton, Cape Town, has come to be appreciated just as much as the scenery.
