WHO: Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loecke, cofounders of design firm Madcap Cottage
WHERE: High Point, NC, in a historic Regency-style home
WHAT THEY WANTED: A pretty, practical laundry room
The English country look effortlessly masters a mix of sensibilities. In bold, punchy colors, chinoiserie prints and playful patterns complement antique furnishings and fabric-covered lampshades, resulting in an eclectic expression that celebrates both the old and the new.

THE DESIGN CHALLENGE: Stocked with unsightly equipment by nature, the laundry room required creative thinking to hide everyday essentials.
THE MUST-HAVE: Put simply: style that stood up to the rest of the home.
THE RESULT: A carefully constructed wall unit that hosts the stacked washer and dryer seamlessly and conceals cleaning supplies, such as vacuums, behind cabinets.
PLUS: Gold-handled custom cabinetry holds the couple’s vintage china collection.
BONUS: Whimsical wallpaper and a floral sink skirt capture the Anglophiliac couple’s penchant for patterns.
