John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind North Carolina- and New York-based interior design firm Madcap Cottage. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents—along with their pound-rescue posse, Jasper, Weenie, and Amy Petunia—scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed viewpoint. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny’s antiques and a spirited dash of Chinoiserie chic with a soupçon of Morocco-meets-India élan. Shake, stir, then pour.
The Madcap Cottage gents run their firm—an ever-changing design laboratory—from a former pharmacy in the heart of High Point, North Carolina, the hub for American decorative arts. Find the Madcap Cottage-curated selection of vintage and antique finds on One Kings Lane and 1st Dibs. And shop the Madcap Cottage line of bedding, window treatments, and pillows exclusively on HSN and at HSN.com. Notes Susan Crewe, the Editor in Chief of British House & Garden magazine, “Madcap Cottage’s designs are fastidiously executed and are a joyful antidote to the beige-and-mirror, bought-the-shop school of design.”
