We couldn't pass up the opportunity to sit down with Jason & John, the Madcap Cottage Gents, at their home in High Point, North Carolina. They graciously invited us over for dinner, and before we dug into their spread, we discussed all of the gorgeous details in their home, their upcoming book Prints Charming, and much more.

  • Taryn shares her trial -- putting toilet bowl cleaner in her dishwasher!
  • Her triumph was successfully getting her dog's drool off her car's leather interior
  • I share my newest go-to appetizer for entertaining

  • We discuss many of the details in Jason and John's home -- like the way they hung art in their library
