Loft Living in Sonoma County

Issue 45 · Materials · November 7, 2012

LA-based DISC Interiors creates a modern rustic retreat for a wine-making couple in a former Sonoma warehouse space.

The couple, based in LA but partners in a boutique winery in Sonoma, was looking to create a "modern, open, airy, comfortable" space for their visits to wine country. To realize their vision, they turned to David John and Krista Schrock of DISC Interiors; a newish firm that's quietly making its mark on the design scene with their clean yet classic interiors. For this 1,000-square-foot Sonoma Valley loft, a renovation of a onetime commercial office space, John and Schrock employed a neutral, quiet palette with textural accents like cork, reclaimed wood, and seagrass carpet. Stay tuned for a Steal This Look on the kitchen.

Above: John and Schrock opened up the ceilings and painted it the same color as the walls, creating a loft-like, airy feel. In a nod to the surrounding wine country, they used cork for the kitchen flooring.

Above: A long custom shelf runs the entire length of the kitchen. "The shelf is perfect for wine glasses and ease of living. Over time, I'm sure this kitchen will be full of wine bottles and some good wine stains." The owner is a partner in a boutique winery specializing in "intense terroir-driven zinfandels" from the Russian River and outlying areas.

Above: Rustic elements include the reclaimed wood-clad island base. The butcher block countertops will age over time.

Above: A Noguchi lamp hangs In the living room. The sofa is a custom DISC design. Natural seagrass flooring was used to compliment the natural cork on the kitchen floor.

Above: The entire space was painted in Benjamin Moore's Wind's Breath 981 to make the 1,000-square-foot space feel larger than it actually is.
