Scheer and Co. Interior Design
An English major turned interior designer, Killy Scheer’s design work has taken her across The United States and Texas. Taking “an intellectual, researched-based approach to design,” she founded Scheer & Co. in 2013 with the “belief that a home should feel elegant and familiar.”
A part of 2015’s Tribeza Interiors Tour, where she collaborated with architect Chris Sanders of Sanders Architecture; this time around the two have once again partnered on a layered and art-filled space. Scheer has revamped the new family home he shares with his wife Hannah Temple and their two kids.
The 1910 house on Hemphill Park features three bedrooms, three and a half baths and a detached garage apartment. Scheer, who describes the project as “a study in style mixing,” dived headfirst into the challenge, marrying Sanders and Temple’s clean and modern tastes to the existing architecture and history of the home. To strike the right balance, Scheer kept everything functional and durable but also employed stately finishes: metallic fixtures, vintage textiles and rich colors including orange, berry and peacock blue.
Scheer’s favorite feature of the redesign? The powder room, adorned with paperback-book wallpaper and offset by a tangerine door, or “any room with wallpaper, really!” “What truly excites me about the house,” Scheer says, “are all the unexpected moments of whimsy and all the pieces that make it so unique to our clients.” – SARAH KITCHEL
