"A wonderfully bold carpet from Turkey that we stumbled upon at an incredible carpet shop not far from Ephesus. 'Look at the motifs, the rich colors, and the chic accents,' comments Jason, fondling the carpet like it's the La Peregrina pearl necklace at the Liz Taylor sale at Christie's. 'This rug will make a strong statement without being overwhelming.'" John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Granny's antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian élan. "If you are looking for beige and boring," says Jason, "go bark up someone else's tree."
