Welcome to “Prints Charming: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns,” the Bible for taking that nice home and making it a knockout. Known for our passion for prints and pattern, High Point, North Carolina-based interior designers John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon of Madcap Cottage show you how to mix and match in a fun, accessible, and never-scary way.
Says John, “We give you permission to bring fun into your home. A beige room never put a smile on anyone’s face. Start small with pattern then layer-on more, more, and more. We might just have you wallpapering your ceiling and embellishing your lampshades by the time you reach the end of the book.”
In “Prints Charming,” Madcap Cottage projects that span from coast to coast demonstrate the power of pattern in chapters that range from “Pattern is Romantic” and “Pattern is Traditional” to “Pattern is Modern” and “Pattern in Masculine.”
Notes Jason Oliver, “Good design should be available to all, whether you have an interior designer or access to design centers or not. We believe in design that is aspirational but also accessible and attainable. As celebrated interior designer Dorothy Draper once said, ‘Banish the beige,’ and we couldn’t agree more. Gravy is best left for the Thanksgiving dinner table.”
Beautifully photographed and packed with tips, suggestions, takeaway ideas, and history lessons, “Prints Charming” is the must-have design book of the season. And priced at $35, “Prints Charming” is the perfect gift for you and your design-minded friends and family.
