Founded by interior designers Krista Schrock and David John Dick, DISC Interiors has been hailed for creating warm modern designs that exude an “enviable California vibe.”
What inspired this career path for you? We both believe in the impact that thoughtful and well-designed interior spaces can have, and were drawn to work in this field. Early in her career, Krista worked in graphic design, and David was a glassblower, and their paths eventually led them to designing custom interiors for their clients throughout California.
What is your go-to source for inspiration? We are constantly inspired by nature. That is usually one of our first go-to sources – whether it is a color palette inspired by the mosses of Northern California or textures inspired by natural materials such as raw stone, wood, etc.
Tell us about your creative process. It varies so much depending on what we are working on, but it always starts with how a space should feel. Then we run wild from there! We love spaces that feel calm, and we start with this as the initial inspiration for our creative process. In Los Angeles, we are surrounded by so many small companies and furniture makers. We love to collaborate to create rooms that have unique details for our clients.
Describe your style. Textural, Neutral, Warm Modern, and a dose of something unexpected.
What’s a staple in your tool kit? Belgian Linen
Who do you look up to in the design world? We both are extremely inspired by Ilse Crawford. In California we love Atelier AM, and are always inspired by Belgian designers like Vincent Van Duysen and Axel Vervoordt.
If you could design a space for anyone, what kind of space and for whom would it be? We are dying to design a boutique hotel…
Tell us your favorite design-related word, phrase, or quote. “Wabi-Sabi” – an aesthetic often described as “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. Our interior works are never focused on perfection; instead, we seek to design rooms that are casual, with “living” finishes, and patinas that tell a story and have history. We love the layers that come with this philosophy, and are very influenced by “balance”, and other elements in Japanese design.
Which design blog, website, TV show, or magazine would you be lost without? We don’t follow too many design-related shows or blogs, but we are both extremely inspired by food and cooking. We have been watching The Mind of a Chef and Chef’s Table recently, and find the passion and focus of the featured chefs to be such an inspiration.
What do you love about Viyet? Not only is it well-designed, but we love how edited the selections are, which in the end saves us time when we are looking for pieces for our clients. We also love that this resource allows our clients to sell pieces that they once loved to others who will love them again, too.
