For Sam Riback, executive vp and co-head of A&R at Interscope Geffen A&M, and his wife, Gina Schulman, head of partnerships for PLUS1 Org, a nonprofit that works with artists including Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Diplo and Ariana Grande to raise money and awareness for social and environmental justice causes, last year’s Grammys were hugely memorable.

Interscope’s Billie Eilish took home five statues including one for album of the year, while her brother Finneas was named producer of the year. “It was an amazing night for Billie and Finneas and the whole Interscope team,” says Riback. Adds Schulman, “I think it was our last social outing.”

Less than six weeks later, Mayor Eric Garcetti issued stay-at-home orders for Los Angeles. This year, the Grammy Awards ceremony will take place March 14 amid COVID-19 protocols with no live audience. Riback and Schulman will be cheering on Interscope’s 2021 nominees — who include Eilish, Lady Gaga, DaBaby (featuring Roddy Ricch), Tame Impala and Jacob Collier — from their family room. “We’ll watch it with our kids,” says Riback. “That may never happen again, so that may be a silver lining to be able to share that.”

Their Spanish Colonial-style abode is one of 10 L.A. houses showcased in DISC Interiors: Portraits of Home ($60, Rizzoli, out April 6), the first book from DISC Interiors founders David John Dick and Krista Schrock. Named one of L.A.’s top 20 interior design firms in 2019 by THR, DISC draws inspirations from the sun-drenched landscape of California, gravitating toward colors and textures inspired by the natural world.

“You don’t need a lot of color to be impactful,” explains Dick. Says Schrock, “We’re definitely on the other end of the spectrum than shiny and sleek, though it’s fun to add elements of that.”

Their work, mingling tactile materials, luxe finishes and rich neutrals, is inviting and serene. “We’re really interested in making comfortable spaces that feel very contemporary and polished yet also have that wonderful dramatic moment without being over the top,” says Dick. Other DISC clients have included Sundance Institute CEO Keri Putnam and Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer.

Riback and Schulman found the duo via Instagram, hiring them to transform their home in L.A.’s Mid-City from a flamboyant Hollywood Regency look (done by a previous owner) into something that offers a respite from the couple’s busy work lives. “Home time is family time,” says Schulman, “though there’s always music.” Adds Dick, “We wanted to create an earthy, family-centric, collected space that reflected their love of travel.”

Completed in 2019, the renovation, however, didn’t include any home office space. During the first weeks of working from home because of the pandemic, the couple shared the dining room. Eventually, Riback commandeered a den at the back of the house, where French doors open to the backyard.

“We’ve gotten closer as a family being here, so that says a lot about the home. David and Krista were able to create this timeless space that’s both kid-friendly and design-forward. We love it,” says Schulman, whose organization in the last year has worked with the music industry in creating a COVID-19 Relief Fund and the PLUS1 for Black Lives Fund. (To date, PLUS1 has raised and distributed over $9 million.)
