About - Scout Studios


Carissa Stevens // Founder & Designer Scout Studios

Carissa’s style and design are influenced by her extensive travels abroad. A native Oklahoman, she lived as an expat abroad in Singapore and Dubai for the majority of her life. Upon graduating high school, she returned to her Oklahoma roots where she graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma.

Carissa’s passion for creating beautiful spaces began with blogging about the renovation of her own 1920’s craftsman style bungalow. From there, her passion for design flourished and Scout Studios began.

Her signature style is often described as “cultivated” and “classic”. She enjoys incorporating a mix of pieces a client already owns, and scouting for one of a kind pieces which bring a room to life.

“As a designer, my job is to transform a client’s vision into something tangible. When I walk away from a project, my ultimate goal is for the client to look around at a space which feels personal, looks beautiful and holds true to the integrity of their tastes.”  


Stephanie Mitchell a.k.a. “Bobcat” // Design Intern 

A recent transplant to Oklahoma, Stephanie brings a new perspective to design in Oklahoma. She is currently majoring in Interior Design with a minor in Graphic Design at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Her love of vintage pieces mixed with modern styling brings character to the spaces she works in.
