    Featured in the latest issue of Est Magazine, this originally designed by prominent 1920s architect Frankie Faulkner, this Silver Lake home has been given a renewed lease on life thanks to Californian-based design studio DISC Interiors. The client, a young family, requested an interior scheme that would mature gracefully over the years ahead, placing an emphasis on quality and long-lasting materials.

    In response, DISC were inspired the simple coastal lifestyle, “a minimal Mediterranean home on the coast, one that focused on materials and texture, and a muted earthy colour palette” explains designer John David Dick. To read more see Est Magazine Issue #22.

    Everything in its right place: The living room marries a custom DISC upholstery and Casamindy iron and leather coffee table with a Bernard Schottlander ‘Mantis’ black wall sconce and Lawson-Fenning Rolled Perforated Sconces.

    Beginning with paring the homes aesthetic back to a minimum, the DISC team chose to hold on to some of the buildings existing features while removing and remodelling others to accommodate a simpler approach to the space. The kitchen and bathroom were renovated and the interiors all refurnished with a balance of vintage and newer pieces, including some custom DISC upholstery and furniture.

    The result is a light-filled, rustic yet refined home with a relaxed aesthetic that welcomes children’s play and family time. In sourcing textures and materials that are designed to mature with light, touch and use the designers have guaranteed this will be a home that only builds in character over the years.

    Throughout the home an emphasis on organic and rustic textures is present, bringing the surrounding green hillscapes of Silver Lake into balance and adding to the earthy colour palette.
