Scout & Nimble - Shoppable Designer Rooms

Hello, everyone! It's been a while since my last post, but today I am back to share something with you that I believe in, whole-heartedly, and have the honor a being a part of. That something is Scout & Nimble. What is Scout & Nimble? Scout & Nimble is an innovative new website that is changing the way YOU think about and shop for the spaces in your home.

A few months ago, my friend, Jesse Bodine, reached out to me and asked if she could share with me a "project" she was working on. I, of course, said yes. A few days later Jesse introduced me to the her brain-child, her passion, the vision she and her husband were bringing to life, Scout & Nimble. This is how she explained the vision for the new website:

  • Scout & Nimble’s mission is to bring exceptional designers & enthusiasts together with unique & stylish products so consumers can browse, discover, & shop fully curated rooms.  
  • Each room is created by the massively talented group of Room Designers, who combine their favorite pieces together to create a room using their own signature style & aesthetic.  
  • We know that a person’s surroundings can greatly affect their mood, happiness & confidence.  We also know that decorating can often be a paralyzing task.  We want to make having a beautiful designer styled room accessible to everyone. 
  • Scout & Nimble removes the guesswork in home design and the chance to have a room designed by their favorite designer, blogger or stylist.  
  • The chance to discover new designers and bloggers.  Many of the Room Designers specialize in custom e-design and customers can contact them directly for those services. 
  • We offer FREE Shipping on many of our products, including the larger pieces. 
So what does that all mean? It means that you can go to Scout & Nimble and browse through numerous design boards, thoughtfully created by a group of talented designers, for every space in your home. When you see a board that you love, you don't have to search the internet or stalk the designer's Instagram to find out where to buy the products you see on the board. Instead, you can buy each and every item right from the Scout & Nimble site.

What I love about this is that it makes good design truly accessible to everyone, even if you can't hire a designer. No, you aren't getting a space that a designer creates solely for you, with only your style and space in mind, like you do with traditional design services or E-Design. But Scout & Nimble isn't meant to be a substitute for either of these. It is meant to help those of you that can't hire a designer, and still want a designer space. 

Jesse also asked me if I would join the talented group of Designers that have signed on to be part of Scout & Nimble's launch. I am so happy she asked me and feel honored to be amongst other designers whose work I respect and admire.

Today through Wednesday, the design boards/rooms I created for Scout & Nimble will be featured on the site. I hope you will all take a moment to stop by and take a look around. And if you feel inclined, show Scout & Nimble some love and spread the word about this great new resource for the design enthusiast. I wish Jesse and her team all the best! I know they are going to do great things!
