Mountain Getaway Transformed

Replacing the river rock fireplace with stacked stone and a barnwood mantel provides an updated architectural element for this large room. The barnwood accent was continued on the base of the kitchen island for continuity.

WILLOW CREEK INTERIOR DESIGN OWNER AND DESIGNER COLLEEN WALLS IS INSPIRED WHEN PRESENTED WITH A CREATIVE CHALLENGE. Recognizing that privately owned land in Teton County is becoming more limited, she has focused her business toward the increasing trend of remodeling.

Walls and associate designer Lacey Stalter redesigned this Teton Pines cluster home while simultaneously overseeing the update of the Teton Pines clubhouse. Working with the out-of-town partnership that purchased the home, Walls and Stalter conducted all business online through GoToMeeting. They shared design ideas with the homeowners using 3-D modeling software, and then expedited the plan as project managers. To the delight of their clients, the remodel was complete in four months and within budget. The collaboration, says Walls, resulted in a complete transformation from a tired, dated space to an open, mountain contemporary getaway.


This space was completely redesigned structurally and aesthetically, resulting in a fully functional, open contemporary master bathroom.
Clean lines in furniture and lighting, and a Western flair in the area rug and artwork provide a current look for this dining room.
Simple iron balusters and hickory newel posts, along with the hickory flooring, transformed the existing staircase.
