The talented creative director and cofounder of Jayson Home travels the world for design inspiration. Here’s how she uses her global finds in her own place to keep it current, collected, and humming with wall-to-wall art. Take a look around, and learn a few lessons from an expert.
A Hunter-Gatherer's Philosophy
Scheeler, who says she inherited her design sense from her architect father and collector mother, defines her style as “curated but not precious. I seek imperfection, and I find freedom in the potential for change.”
Let the Walls Do the Talking
Scheeler chooses artworks that “add to the story” of her entire home. In a happy accident, an estate-sale portrait in the dining room completes the gallery wall along the stairwell when viewed from the foyer. She found the stair runner on the ground at the Spitalfields market in London, and “bought it for a steal.”
Connect with Color
A blue-and-white rug and Behr Marquee paint in Heirloom Silver give the master bath a calm vibe; paintings in similar shades carry it into the bedroom.
Walls painted in warm neutrals (like Farrow & Ball’s Wimborne White) show off striking pieces, such as the antique ikat textile Scheeler uses as a headboard. The disco ball brightens the room; the Alta lamp and Serge chair are from Jayson Home.
Eclectic Can Be Elegant
The family room showcases the same vision—clean lines, prints, and points of rich color—Scheeler brings to her job. The washable white linen slipcover on her custom Lee sofa lives nicely with the family’s cat and three dogs. “I love OxiClean,” she jokes. “It comes out looking pretty darn good.” Bamileke stools from Cameroon stand in as cocktail tables, and a vintage Platner lounge chair looks luxe reupholstered in dark-paprika velvet. Scheeler bought the Beni Ourain rug in Morocco. The baskets, pillows, and lamp are from Jayson Home.
