"Why not keep your knockout keepsakes in a fruit-embossed vintage brass box. Well, that's a little like asking if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, but whatever. Who cares if a tree falls, how boring. We suggest you purchase this lovely, and, no, that was not a question. Tra-la-la."
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their imaginative 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. “You only live once,” say the pair, channeling Mae West, “but if you do it right, once is enough.”
