"To quote the inimitable Blow Monkeys, I am digging your scene. And that scene is an especially louche nightclub in London’s East End, circa1984, with Miss Patsy Kensit sashaying by with Marilyn in tow, and they plunk down at this gorgeous painted aqua wood side table with its vaguely Aztec motif and they sway and shimmy to the tunes of Scritti Politti and drink up the hooch like it’s 1999."
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.”
