Jade Fontane

Born: 1969, San Francisco.
Lives: Currently posted in Hong Kong, but home is LA, with frequent trips to homes in Sonoma and Aspen.

Favorite Design Trend:  Anything but French Country!  Hate it.  Inspiration: Coco Chanel.  Currently into almost anything Danish circa 1960
Favorite Color: Chartreuse (combine it with charcoal for a superstar look).
Favorite Cocktail: Boysenberry Mojito (the right mix of tang and kick.  Girly, but not over-the-top)
Recent Vacations: Buenos Aires, Shanghai

“Yes, I’m all about brands, style and design, but at the core of it all, I’m just a simple gal who knows how to have a good time!!” explained Jade when we asked her to describe herself.  Park Jade on cliff overlooking the crashing waves of Big Sur, with a bottle of red and a good book, and Jade is in heaven.

“What do I not like?  WALLFLOWERS who make it a point of leading horribly boring existences!!  Let’s face it, life is short, so kick it up a notch and enjoy every minute!”

Jade has been with cVibe for ages, it seems, and is always reminding us that great design and spirit often comes from simple elements.  Having a weekend retreat (to put it mildly) in the hills of Sonoma, Jetset Jade knows how to kick back and live it up.  Entertaining comes naturally, having descended from a dynasty of famous chefs and socialites in her native land Down Under.  We love Jade, she is here to stay…
