The Madcap Diary

Making good design available one blog post at a time.

Welcome to The Madcap Diary! Our goal is to carry you along upon the Madcap gents’ far-flung adventures, to introduce you to our favorite finds and most delicious discoveries, and to make good design available to all, regardless of whether you have a design center nearby or not.

We invite you to hop into our suitcase en route to northern India… We will road test our favorite retail-ready paints and compare marble versus quartz and discuss the pleasures of bespoke furnishings and why antiques and vintage finds are interior design essentials. We will dine out in Manhattan, sip cocktails in Palm Beach, cook dinner for friends in our hometown of High Point, North Carolina, and host an impromptu disco dance party under the stars. And that’s just scratching the surface…

Think of The Madcap Diary as an intimate dinner party where we all get to know each other over dirty vodka martinis and share salty stories… We look forward to you reaching out to us with your questions, queries, thoughts, impressions, likes, and dislikes. Join the conversation!

Gang: Happy holidays! Any great stories from your Christmas adventures? John and I kicked back and relaxed–well, we don’t really know how to relax but we did see a few movies and tackled several organization projects at the House of Bedlam. The spice rack is in tip-top shape, the T-shirts…
