Design 5 Swoon Worthy Things:

Jane Keltner de Valle

I first encountered Jane Keltner de Valle, native New Yorker and Fashion New Director of Glamour Magazine, last year when she organized an entertaining story in Glamour Living’s holiday pages in my Brooklyn home. I was immediately struck by Jane’s undeniable refined elegance and was smitten to learn that she and her architect hubby were buying an apartment right here in Dumbo – in my former building! Neighborly chit chat lead to friendship and chatter about all things design as she entered into a massive renovation of her home. Lending her fashion eye to uber chic interiors, Jane is the ideal swooner to share the 5 things she is currently coveting for her impeccably designed new loft!
