Scouting for Cool Stuff

Scout Living is a Vintage Collective run by husband and wife team Erin Boyle and Stefan Betz Bloom. This section of the shop features furniture and decor by Martin Mattox
Shopping for my home and for my clients has just gotten one step easier since new Scout Living opened in town. Located in the middle of "the grid" in midtown Sacramento, Scout Living is the brain child of husband and wife team, Erin Boyle and Stefan Betz Bloom. It is a collective of the best (IMO) antique, modern, and vintage furniture and decor dealers in the area, and I am so excited that they have joined forces and are scouting out the best for all of us.

Scout Living on 18th Street in Sacramento's "grid"
Erin and Stefan began their furniture obsession in San Francisco but moved to Sacramento not too long ago. Sacramento was screaming for some design attention, and Erin and Stefan were only too happy to oblige. This creative couple specialize in 2oth century modern, Danish Modern and Art Deco. Other dealers in Scout Living also contribute to this vibe. Other dealers, like Martin Mattox, offer a mix of modern, industrial and vintage French. There is definitely something for everyone.

Honestly, once I entered the loft-like interior of the charming brick building, my heart skipped a beat, and my eyes dilated...a true sign of design attraction. Here is a little peek at Scout:

This chair had a zebra hide back and white leather, soft as butter, on the seat and back.
Quality is exceptional here. Loved the yellow lamp!

Fantastic beaker collection atop very cool metal industrial secretary

Sofa had original upholstery, in great comfortable!

I was busily snapping away at all of the goodness when Erin and Stefan came back from errands. Immediately charmed by this hip young couple, I was happy to chat away a good part of the afternoon thanking them for bringing their design sensibilities to midtown. They are a tall drink of cool water for this hot summer town. 
Stefan and Erin....I was thoroughly charmed. BTW....they made the light fixtures throughout the space!
It was very hard to pull myself away, but I know they are only a hop, skip I will be back very soon.

I hope you all have a chance to stop in and say "hi".

Scout Living is located at:
1215 18th Street
Sacramento, CA 95811

Happy Scouting!
