Home tour- Pattern obsession!

Jason Oliver Nixon with partner, John Loecke acquired a Tudor rowhouse in Brooklyn's Prospect Lefferts Gardens as home and headquarters for their interior design firm, John Loeke, Inc. Inside, they have made their place their "laboratory," constantly pushing the decorative envelope with painted floors, custom sofas with floral upholstery and most strikingly, with dozens of whimsical wall-coverings-sometimes several to a room.

"For us, boring is death; we want the eye to be constantly engaged, "explains Nixon. "Wallpaper is a simple tool for taking you to another place,"says Locke. "The goal is to give you sort of an escape."







I agree with their statements that wallpaper helps to transport you to another place and give you an escape. Personally, I think their home is beautiful, eclectic and inviting. I just love how they used color and pattern fearlessly and how everything still looks pull together despite several combinations of entirely different colors and patterns. These duo are definitely masters of patterns and colors. 

My favorite rooms of theirs are the blue den and the bedroom. For me, I can see myself living in homes like these although I personally do not have the guts to go as bold with my own home interiors. What are your thoughts? Are you turned off by their designs? Do you think it is a little overwhelming? Can you live with these designs? I would love to know.

  6. Wow- they are colorful, creative with their home! My favorites are the wallpaper in the master bedroom and green/white stripes on the living room floors. It might be too much color and pattern for me, but I love that they went for it and didn't hold back! :)

  14. Hiya Jessie! :) Concerning my new name Piipuna; I never liked the name blurry bright. It was a random pick when I was creating the blog and as I feel like I'm getting into this whole blog thing I wanted a name that I believe can live for a long time. "Piipuna" is just a figure/word of my imagination (as far as I know), but I hope it'll become something more as I go along with it. I want it to represent a style, a mood, a vibrant touch and life. Long life. I want it to represent me, in time. I mean for it to be pronounced with only one "i" so the pressure is on the u. I should probably write ú. Or is it ù? :p Anyways, hope you get what I mean :) xxx

  20. I so appreciate designers who are willing to push the edge, and I'd say this duo accomplished that!
    I am a big ninny when it comes to color AND pattern, so I'm not sure I could live here, but I love to look.
    Nice to visit your blog, Jesse. I only wish I had gotten here sooner!
