How do you create a room that will stand the test of time? You make it understated, quietly elegant, and especially comfortable, says Jane Ellsworth. I have admired Jane’s refined, classic elegance for years and I am delighted to feature an interview and highlights from her exquisite portfolio today. Jane established her eponymous design firm, Jane Ellsworth Interiors in Greenwich, Connecticut in 1990, and she has gained recognition for her classically inspired, traditional interiors. After receiving her BFA from Parsons School of Design, Jane earned positions at two notable firms that continue to influence the American landscape; Donghia Associates in New York City and Bruce Gregga, Inc. in Chicago. She also happens to be the sister-in-law of Stacey Bewkes, founder of the acclaimed design blog Quintessence. Exquisite taste runs throughout this family! Unless otherwise noted, photography is by Jane Beiles.
