"Your favorite Madcap Cottage duo loves nothing more than an antique engraving of a glorious palace like this 18th-century print of the forecourt of Versailles. Oh, to have visited Versailles back in the day with Marie-Antoinette sashaying hither and yon with her hair done up to here like it was a ship bobbing about in the ocean en route to Martinique or maybe the Cote d'Ivoire in her gown done up to there by Rose Bertin who later moved to London. Oh, the glamour. Hang this upon your wall, and dream of the days when there was royalty and no dreary égalité and lousy fraternité. Frame is original.”

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.”
