Debuting Prints Charming


When I think of Madcap Cottage my head and heart are filled with thoughts of color, pattern, whimsy and fun.  Add in two fun loving incredibly talented designers, Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke, and you have pure design magic. I can not think of one single Madcap room that I have ever seen that doesn't make me smile.  Perfect layers with lots of color and pattern and you end up with happy rooms and, of course, happy clients.

The House of Bedlam, their home in Highpoint, North Carolina, has been the subject of many magazine articles, a One Kings Lane feature and on more blogs than I can count.  This feature by my favorite blog, The Glam Pad, is truly one to read and to add each of the photos to your Pinterest boards. Their home is warm and welcoming and layered with so many things they love. I had the honor of staying one night with them during this market and I can tell you I would have stayed forever. This story in the October 2016 issue of Traditional Home give you a full tour of their home and some inside information on their journey and renovation.




I am thrilled to share their highly anticipated first book, Prints Charming, is available for purchase.  This incredible 256 page guide to prints and patterns and beautiful rooms is one you will not be able to put down. I received my copy on Friday evening and have read it every single night since.  Not only is it beautiful to look at, but it is filled with so much information and knowledge and tips on creating incredible rooms.  I am telling you it will be your new favorite book.

I had the immense privilege of sitting down with Jason Oliver Nixon in the living room of the House of Bedlam to talk with him about Prints Charming, what it means to them and some of the special things they added to truly create a one of a kind "little black book" for pattern and color.


You will truly love this book and want to grab one for yourself and for gifts.  I can not imagine a better hostess gift or happy for the upcoming fall and winter season.  Take my advice and get four, you will be thankful you did!!

Have the best Thursday!

On The Way Home ...


I am so excited to say I am on the way home today!!  After four amazing days in High Point and a total of twelve days on the road this month I am thrilled to be heading home to my sweet family and my adorable pup.  I honestly can not wait to squeeze my children and have my pup jump up with sheer excitement when he spots me.  And my bed is truly calling my name. Traveling is always so much fun but there is truly no place like home!

Sigh ...

Warby Parker Goes Archive


Remember this photo from this October 2015 post?  I had the pleasure of trying out five pairs of Warby Parker frames from their Home Try-On to debut their new fall frames.  I absolutely loved the company and the frames were fabulous.  I ended up purchasing the one in the image above, it was by far my favorite of the ones I chose to try on.  Since then my eye prescription has changed but the frames themselves are still timeless and perfect to carry to my eye doctor when my new appointment occurs.

Pink All Month Please ...



Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a cause that is near and dear to my heart I have definitely been thinking about how I can incorporate more pink into my life this month.  Is that even possible you wonder, but I am here to share with us that it is!

Pink all day everyday please!
