Bring the Adventure Home with Madcap Cottage


Friends! Welcome to Madcap for York Wallcoverings!

We are the Madcap Cottage gents, John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon, and we are mad, mad, mad about wallpaper! Based in High Point, North Carolina and known for our whimsical use of color and pattern, along with our pound-rescue posse; Jasper, Weenie and Amy Petunia (see photo above). Imagine a British country house that pairs with Granny’s antiques and a spirited dash of Chinoiserie chic with a dash of Morocco-meets-India. Shake, stir, then pour.

We’re so excited to announce our partnership with America’s oldest wallpaper firm, York Wallcoverings, to bring our vision to life. We count wallcoverings amongst the top tools in our go-to design arsenal. Says John, “There’s nothing like wallpaper to bring architecture and drama to a space where none existed before – and without the need for expensive construction”. Wallpaper will transform any space by bringing a storyline to life.”- whether you seek an indoor garden, a virtual trip to India or Morocco, or a slice of Park Avenue Panache.”

In our new wallpaper collection, think fantastic florals, bold stripes plucked from a beachside cabana, balmy bamboo flourishes and a heaping dash of sophisticated fun inspired by the Madcap Cottage gents’ travels and collections. Take your walls from Ho-hum to “Hello, gorgeous””

At Madcap Cottage, we believe that decorating should be fun and never grim and glum or filled with rules. Decorating should be an adventure- one whose end result are rooms that burst with personality, that put a smile up on your face the moment you step through the front door. Forget white walls and neutral furnishings, it’s time to dream big, and transform your home with the wonders of pattern!
