JAYNE ROSEN: A Creative & Skillful
Interior Designer for Discerning Clients
Jayne started her career as a beauty editor, first at Good Housekeeping, and then at Seventeen. After Seventeen, she switched to fashion, and worked as an editor at Town & Country, and then at Bride’s.
While at Town & Country, she did location photography at fabulous homes, and that’s when she fell in love with interior design – with fine furnishings and art. At Bride’s, in addition to her responsibilities as a fashion editor, Jayne filled in for the design editors when they were on vacation to learn the market, and attended the New York School of Interior Design at night.
As an editor working with top designers, coordinating everything from shoes to ready-to-wear to gowns and accessories, Jayne gained the experience that has given her a sense of color, organization and balance, and a love of fine fabrics that that has informed all of her design work since.
After ten years as an editor, she did what many former editors do: Jayne became a publicist. She had her own firm, specializing in fashion, beauty and home furnishings, for five years. Then, accepting an offer that was too good to refuse, became manager, and then director of public relations for Charles of the Ritz Group, responsible for 16 brands, including 6 from Yves Saint Laurent, and launching Yves Saint Laurent Beaute cosmetics as well as Gianni Versace’s first fragrance in this country. Working with Kohler on a promotion, they created and separately launched the “big bath” as it is known today.
After Ritz, Jayne wrote New York Times ads for Bergdorf Goodman, and then finally decided on the new direction her experiences had been preparing her for for years: she became an interior designer. After apprenticing with two New York interior design firms, Jayne set up her own company, and she’s been doing what she loves best for the last twenty-four years.
Several years ago, Jayne and her husband moved from New York to Solebury (the town that surrounds New Hope, Pa.), and she’s been specializing in interior design for fine country homes ever since.
