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 Grannys antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian lan. If you are looking for beige and boring, says Jason, go bark up someone elses tree.
