jane With a new editor-in-chief at the helm here at STYLE AT HOME magazine, everyone's clamouring to hear more about Jane Francisco. The former editor-in-chief of Wish magazine (amongst other titles in her impressive 18 years in publishing) will be joining our team in July, and we're all pumped to work alongside this style-savvy mag-maven. Jane popped by the office this afternoon for an impromptu chat with yours truly, and, wanting you to have a chance to get to know her as well, I asked her a few questions, rapid-fire style! Here's Jane on... Her proudest career achievement (other than becoming STYLE AT HOME's new editor-in-chief, of course): "At the time, placing runner-up for my work at Venue magazine at the National Magazine Awards." Her fave colour: "It changes over the years. Right now, it's somewhere in the category of 'orange'. Orange is my new neutral." Her style: "I consider myself to be an extreme eclectic. I'm lucky enough to have a cottage, which allows me a second decor personality. I'm interested in a broad range of styles and trends -- if I like something, I like it. Not to say that I'm not influenced or interested in trends; but I don't just stop liking something if it's no longer 'trendy'." What's on her iPod: "Mostly 80s stuff. I made up a huge collection that I call "Forgotten 80s" - stuff that's not played regularly, but totally takes me back. Psychedelic Furs, Level 42, Alphaville..." Her last home purchase: "Siding for my boathouse on Lake Joseph." What's on her home shopping list: "I'm looking for a really good kitchen table. I want it to have a bit of personality, and to bring the feel of the cottage indoors. Something round and rustic... I've also got an oval Saarinen dining table that needs some chairs -- something comfortable and upholstered." What's on her nightstand: "I just finished reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, so I need a follow-up that's extremely light. In the pile is Chasing Harry Winston, which might be a nice frothy antidote!" Karate-chopped pillows or natural, as-is pillow styling?: "Natural!" Welcome, Jane!
