Home Tour: A Light, Bright, and California Cool Space
DOSSIER: NAME: David John Dick and Krista Schrock TRADE: Interior designers at DISC Interiors. VIBE: Masculine, collected, and relaxed. ABODE: 1930s Spanish-style home in Santa Monica, CA.David John Dick and Krista Schrock of DISC Interiors are making a name for themselves creating timeless, relaxed spaces with a slightly modern, and altogether comfortable, edge. "We aim to create warm and calm rooms -- rooms that feel quiet, yet complex," the duo share. For their latest project, they embraced the Mediterranean architecture of their client's home and brought their signature California spin to the interiors. "This home really captures the homeowners' personalities, and their desire to entertain in a casual setting," Dick shares. By embracing a bright, neutral palette punctuated with notes of warmth, the designers created a California-eclectic space perfect for Santa Monica's indoor/outdoor lifestyle. "Our initial mood board reflected a peaceful palette of neutral colours punctuated by soft grays, burnt oranges, vintage leathers, woven jutes, and warm brass tones," Schrock shares. "The clients requested a masculine look that felt warm, earthy, relaxed, and California modern." A blend of Spanish-influenced furnishings, rugged textures, and brass accents enable this dreamy vision to come to life.
