Entertaining with Simplicity

2015, Features

You’ve just left a fabulous party. What do you remember most? Is it the wine? The décor? The appetizers? Chances are, it is none of these, but rather the conversations that stick with you—the jokes told and the pleasure of meeting new friends. This is exactly what Janet Munro emphasizes in her approach to entertaining.

Architecture for the People

2015, Features

The historic homesteads of Grand Teton National Park have attained the same iconic status of the mountains looming behind them. Buffeted by winds, the sweep of snow, and a century of blazing summers, their wood is silver, beams of sun bar wizened floorboards, grass grows from their roofs, and porches lilt precariously on spindly beams of lodgepole pine. To some, their romance is in decay, but that view disregards what they have to tell us.

Just south of Wilson, Wyoming, stands a magnificent log home, replete with light. Abundant windows, soaring beams, and southern exposure draw the sun inside. This particular five-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 5,600- square-foot home underwent an extensive remodel in 2012-13: It had changed ownership, and the new owners desired an update.

A Home In Tune

2015, Dream Homes

The Moosebrush home near the base of Teton Pass has a laid-back, jazzy, improvisational feel that belies the deep thought and multitude of decisions invested in each space. Designer Jennifer Prugh Visosky, of Grace Home Design, and contractor Craig Olivieri, of Jackson Hole Contracting, proved equally adept at achieving the same flow when they were tasked with renovating it.

Coordinating Success

2015, Dream Homes

The word “pavilion” conjures an image of open air with light and landscape beyond, and this North Gros Ventre Butte home embodies the term perfectly. Rather than settling on north- or south-facing exposure, the home offers almost 360-degree views from its levels, which appear at first glance to be entirely comprised of suspended, shimmering glass.

Forging Timeless Treasures

2015, Design Inspiration, Features

In what they term a stroke of “elemental metallurgy,” business partners John Walters and Claudette Stern met at a New Mexico iron pour in 2006. When they recognized a shared sense of vision, classic design principles, and artistic craftsmanship, opportunity sparked. “Oddity” became “commodity” as the two formed METAL LLC. A recent addition to Jackson Hole’s stable of artists contributing to home design and décor, METAL LLC designs and fabricates projects that run the gamut:...

An Artist’s Hand

2015, Design Inspiration, Features

As an abstract artist as well as an esteemed architect, Berlin says the process is similar for both. “Drawing keeps you in touch with the comprehensive feeling of a design,” he says. The following pairings of Berlin’s drawings and his architecture reveal how his modern visions originate within the timeless practice of making marks on paper.

Personal Style: one work

2015, Arts

For most of his life, Eliot Goss has pursued two parallel tracks: architecture and painting. Educated on the East Coast (at Princeton and MIT), he moved west, landing first in Denver, then settling in 1990 at the foot of the Tetons. With architecture taking up 98 percent of his time, he carved out 2 percent for painting. Now, the ratio has flipped: He spends the majority of his time making art, reserving a small part...

Evolution in Paint

2015, Arts

Art is, in a sense, a way of becoming. For Kathryn Turner, her painterly eye originated in Jackson Hole, where she grew up surrounded by limitless space, the constant play of light, and no delineation between the “wild” and the open meadows of her grandparents’ dude ranch. Precocious, the painter found mentors early. “I was blessed to meet renowned artists at a young age,” Turner explains. “Conrad Schwiering, Skip Whitcomb, Ned Jacob, Tim Lawson—they all...
