NEWS FLASH - Scout Designs Update

This just in - my charming and most talented friend, Callie Jenschke, and her partner, Nicki Clendening, of Scout Designs, have been recognized and endorsed by Daily Candy here !

I am so excited for this amazing design duo. Some of you may remember that I am especially fond of Callie as she was our first babysitter when we moved to Fredericksburg fifteen years ago. She has been such a delight to know over the years, and of course, I live vicariously through her adventures in design and her life in NYC!

I posted about these two talented young women here last summer. They have added more fabulous design work to their project list and have a great blog as well.

Here are a few of their great designs, but you really need to visit their website to get the full gist of their amazing style and vision.

What a fabulous tablescape. I love the mix, and who would ever think to make a lamp out of alabaster grapes?!

The vast scope of design vision these young designers have is fascinating to me. When I look at their work, I see a full range of vintage bohemian to sleek and sophisticated.

          They are clever, hard working, fresh.  They will scout for that perfect piece of furniture or accessory. Obviously, they are connected to some great sources for antiques and unusual, interesting objects.

If I could, I would hire them in a heartbeat!

 See more at their website, Scout Designs.
