Design Director

Jane founded Valentine Interiors and Design Pty Ltd in 2015. 

Jane Valentine leads the team in delivering intriguing and compelling outcomes. She has 28 years of experience in the design industry with multiple national awards, including the 2021 NAWIC Crystal Vision Award, 2019 NAWIC Business Woman of the Year, and recently a state finalist for the Telstra Business Awards. 

Jane is an accredited interior designer with the DIA (Design Institute of Australia), graduated from the University of Tasmania with first-class honours in design, and was awarded the prestigious University medal.

She invests her energy in the design process, her team, and industry collaboration through public talks, written pieces, and education. She works hard to support the design community and society through the studio becoming carbon neutral, judging national awards, and mentoring students, always ensuring she contributes to something more significant than just her practice.

Jane has taught commercial and residential Interior Design at Foundry (Swinburne University of Technology), specialising in hospitality design, concept development, human centred design, spatial design, and activity-based work environment design. 

In the studio, Jane is our big picture person, constantly shuffling the pieces of every design puzzle to ensure that not only each design element is exceptional but that the whole design is cohesive and utterly compelling. 

Jane has an avid interest in art selection and curation and loves all things hospitality. Her bubbliness and empathetic approach always make you feel at ease when you meet her.
