Three things you learned from Girl Scouts: Thin Mints are deceptively named, a neckerchief can spruce up any outfit, and if you want to succeed, follow the girl with the most patches on her vest.
Make that girls: Nicki Clendening and Callie Jenschke, the eagle-eyed founders of interior design firm Scout Designs.
Sweet-as-pie Southerners who met while working on The Greenwich Hotel, the duo are metaphorically tricked out with merit badges like Compositionally Inclined and Scoring the Most. They scour flea markets and secret sources to find exactly the antiquated subway map, tortoise shell lamp, or worn leather stool that you’ve needed to complete your space.
From consulting to totally revamping an apartment or office of any size, they’ll work with your style and budget. And they’ve agreed to waive their project fee for DailyCandy readers.
Winning major brownie points with us.
