Located in High Point, North Carolina, Jason and John have renovated their home to perfection, bringing it back to its heyday while incorporating their signature style. The history buffs infused a generous dose of historical perspective, taking cues - and actual pieces - from he homes of style icons such as Bunny Mellon, C.Z. Guest, Nancy Reagan, and Joan Fontaine. The Madcap gents also love to entertain, so they wanted a home that would accommodate guests in addition to serving as a comfortable haven for them to relax with their dogs. Let's take a look inside!

"We are big fans of history and of the history of design. In addition to making a home feel livable, we really want to create a storyline and sense of history."
