Meet Your Prints Charming

Welcome to “Prints Charming: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns,” the Bible for taking that nice home and making it a knockout. Known for our passion for prints and pattern, we show you how to mix and match in a fun, accessible, and never-scary way. In “Prints Charming,” Madcap Cottage projects that span from coast to coast demonstrate the power of pattern in chapters that range from “Pattern is Romantic” and “Pattern is Traditional” to “Pattern is Modern” and “Pattern in Masculine.”

We give you permission to bring fun into your home. A beige room never put a smile on anyone’s face. Start small with pattern then layer-on more, more, and more. We might just have you wallpapering your ceiling and embellishing your lampshades by the time you reach the end of the book.

Layers of pattern bring serious style to any interior—and the pages of every shelter magazine currently feature this well-loved look. This bright, lively interior design book is like no other: it shows readers how to choose and use pattern (whether on upholstered furniture, walls, and floors, or in curtains, rugs, and accessories) to create gorgeous room designs. It also teaches readers how to layer pattern for fresh, exciting, personalized spaces. The book is delightfully illustrated with inspiring images of design elements and finished rooms—and each chapter is packed with lively DIY projects, plus Dos and Don’ts, Try This, and more.



For a home that’s warm, personal, and above all HAPPY, follow the lead of the Madcap gents: ‘Expressive not expensive’ decor ideas come to life through their joyful designs—it’s hard to put this book down without crafting a plan and cracking a smile.
