shop love: scout house

Welcome to Scout House - the beautiful little store that calls me inside every time I'm strolling around St Kilda. At first glance you may assume it is a quirky antique store but look closer and you'll see a heavenly mix of old and new items that are full of whimsy and character.

This beautifully curated store is the work of owner Orlando Mesiti who opened Scout House two years ago. He expressed his inspiration for authentic everyday objects, Australian design, reclaiming and reusing, handmade and craft. "Home is so important to me."

Scout House is a treasure trove of new and antique furniture, ornaments, cushions, textiles and art. When sourcing items for Scout House, Orlando explains there are no rules. "I like authentic makers, original products, timber and ceramic. Beautiful authentic textiles. Quality. Anti mass production." In three words Orlando describes Scout House as rustic, eclectic and original. This passion for authenticity and originality means there is something special about every item.

So whether you are strolling around St Kilda or have to tram it from the north side - Scout House is definitely worth a visit. You can find them at 125 Grey Street, St Kilda. If you don't live in Melbourne don't despair, you can forage through all their lovely pieces and buy online at www.scouthouse.com.au

I hope you enjoy this store as much as I do
