John Loecke’s website says it best. “…. when not producing shoots or writing design-related articles for a variety of shelter publications (Better Homes and Gardens, Country Living, Hamptons, and Veranda), and other publications, he can be found running his eponymous interiors firm: John Loecke Inc. His philosophy? “Banish the beige!” as his idol, the celebrated twentieth-century designer Dorothy Draper once proclaimed. For an interior by John Loecke Inc. plays off those same sentiments, combining rich color, texture, and pattern to create delightful spaces that pop with personality and life.” How about “Wit, whimsy, and fun form a solid foundation. Toss in several bold, punchy colors, and the magic comes to life.” I couldn’t have put it better. His use of colour brings a wide grin to my face. Life was meant to be this bold and zesty!

What lively colours and patterns!! His work gives off such a playful, warm vibe. LOVE IT ALL – especially that red lantern, and the placement of the bed in front of the bookcases. (Lots of little hits of Jonathan Adler too).
