Scout and Arrow Byron Bay was created in 2018 by renowned interior designer, Melinda Boundy.
Melinda has always had fascination with the South Western aesthetic. She long adored all Ralph Lauren’s Navajo inspired accessories and fashion.
With what started as a road trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, Melinda was captivated by the energy and creativity that resonates in Santa Fe and this led to becoming a passion project to blend the bohemia of Byron Bay with some South Western grit. That vision grew and decided to bring an essence of it back to the laidback luxury in Bryon Bay
Melinda has a close connection with all of her artisans, which she has collaborated with. When it comes to finding the perfect pieces for her collection, it’s not only about the product that she gravitates towards. It is all about the artisans and the connections that are made. Melinda looks for character, beautiful back-stories and passion.
Each piece at Scout and Arrow Byron Bay has been hand curated by Melinda. Hand made, repurposed and up-cycled, with each piece being a work of art. Every piece is unique and one of a kind with lots of character and a beautiful history to go along with it.
Scout and Arrows Byron Bay’s ethos is to provide bespoke pieces that are sustainable and Melinda wants to educate her customers to purchase less and instead choose beautiful heirloom pieces instead.
The motif and name comes from the adventure that Melinda went on to cultivate her collection. Scouting around the desert and hand curating each piece, Melinda knew the exact direction that she wanted to take, and blazed straight through like an arrow. The coral and turquoise emblem is a stylised version of the first Navajo bracelet that was her first purchase for her personal collection. Throughout history these two minerals combined symbolised the union of land and sea, which is the aesthetic that Scout and Arrow Byron Bay wants to achieve and provide for their customers.
Scout and Arrow Byron Bay invites you to join the tribe and enjoy the ride, while they provide their customers with an experience and pieces that will last a lifetime.
Scout and Arrow is about blending vintage and repurposed, slow fashion and conscious consumerism.
